Brentford team news & predicted XI vs Bournemouth

Thomas Frank’s Bees look to continue their undefeated run at the start of the 2023-24 Premier League campaign when they clash with a Cherries outfit intent on avoiding relegation

Predicted XI

Team News

Thomas Frank is sure to miss out on the same trio of Josh Dasilva, Shandon Baptiste, and Ivan Toney this weekend when Brentford host Bournemouth in the capital.

Both Dasilva and Baptiste remain sidelined through injury, while Toney will not be back until the new year due to his suspension on account of betting breaches.

Frank could also be stripped of the services of both Mikkel Damsgaard and Thomas Strakosha after the pair were unavailable for the club’s Carabao Cup second-round win against Newport, and could very likely miss out here again on the back of it. With regaining key center-back Ben Mee, Frank could go back to a back-three deployment at the weekend.
