Fulham and Brentford have been flying high in the Premier League this season, with both west London clubs harbouring ambitions to gatecrash the Premier League’s top six and achieve European football. As things currently stand, Fulham are positioned in seventh, while Brentford (who have played two games fewer) are in ninth, though things are exceptionally tight in the top half of the table.
The visitors enter this match-up off the back of four unbeaten games, including a last-gasp win over fellow European-chasers Brighton last month and a 0-0 against Chelsea. Marco Silva has been working his magic for the promoted club, with the Cottagers also through to the FA Cup quarter-finals, but for now his main focus will be to continue pushing in the Premier League to disrupt the established hegemony.
Thomas Frank, likewise, has been flourishing this campaign in west London. His Brentford side are unbeaten since October, with that run stretching across 11 games. The Bees have beaten Man City and Liverpool in that time, as well as drawing with Arsenal and Tottenham. Win their three games in hand, and they would actually go just a point below fourth-placed Spurs.

Brentford vs Fulhammatch stats
Andreas Pereira has quietly gone under the radar as one of the signings of the season. The former Manchester United midfielder wasn’t able to cement a consistent starting berth at Old Trafford during his time at the club, but in the capital, he has been Fulham’s attacking focal point, a creative difference-maker. Only Kevin De Bruyne (12), Bukayo Saka (nine) and Christian Eriksen (seven) have more assists than Pereira (six) in the Premier League this season.
He will be looking to provide for Aleksandar Mitrovic, who has already scored 11 goals this season. In fact, the Serbian has registered the third-most shots (82) of any player, behind only Erling Haaland (92) and Harry Kane (85). Ivan Toney will also be looking to get on the scoresheet. He has notched 14 goals, with his tally, again, bettered only by Haaland (27) and Kane (18).

Fulham secured west London bragging rights in the reverse fixture against Brentford, beating the Bees 3-2 back in August. The Cottagers have only ever done a Premier League double over three London clubs: Charlton in 2002/03, Tottenham in 2003/04 and QPR in 2011/12.
