Brentford come into this fixture on the back of a six-game losing run with five of these in the Premier League. Last time out they went down 2-0 at Man City and that and results around them means the gap between them and the bottom three is just six points. They are about to embark on a nice run with four of their next five against teams in the bottom eight. They will hope that Ivan Toney is back after missing midweek.

At home, the Bees have lost three of their last four but these defeats have all come to top eight sides (Wolves, Man Utd and Man City). Both teams scoring has happened in four of the last five and six of the last eight here. Everton are the only of the 11 previous visitors here to have failed to net. The last three played at this ground have been level at half-time the last two being goalless.

Crystal Palace saw their winless Premier League run stretched to four in midweek when they drew 1-1 with Norwich in midweek. Palace found themselves one down in a minute but played better in the second-half and if Wilf Zaha had converted his penalty could have taken all three points. Odsonne Edouard has three goals in the last five but started on the bench in midweek.

Away from Selhurst Park, the Eagles have drawn their last two games 1-1 but are without a victory in six. Palace have in fact just managed one road victory all season which came against Man City. Each of their last two and four of their last five on the road have gone under 2.5 goals. They have managed just one road victory all season which again came against Man City.

Brentford vs Crystal Palace: Match Stats

Both teams to score has happened in six of the last eight Brentford home games and this looks the best bet here. Palace have drawn their last two road games 1-1 and will fancy their chances against a side ranked fifth worst defensively in the league. The reverse fixture ended goalless but both sides have progressed as attacking units since August so goals should be expected.

Nigerian midfielder Frank Onyeka managed two shots on target from midfield in midweek and that was against Man City. It seems strange then that oddsmakers have him priced at 11/4 for 1+ shot on target. Palace are a much weaker defensive side than City so this looks a great value bet.
