Match preview

A huge basement battle between two sides desperately fighting to stay in the Premier League.

This is Brentford's first top-flight campaign for 74 years and, last weekend, they took a huge step towards extending their stay.

The Bees demolished bottom of the table Norwich City 3-0 at Carrow Road with Ivan Toney bagging a hat-trick, featuring two penalties.

The last Brentford player to score a top division treble was Gerry McAloon, doing so against Luton on 24 April 1946.

In the present day, this was a massive victory for Thomas Frank's side as it was their first since 2 January, amassing just one point from their previous eight outings.

So, the Bees remained 15th, six points clear of danger, and another victory here would be an enormous step towards survival.

Burnley meanwhile are the side that currently occupy the third relegation place.

The Clarets hauled themselves back into contention with two wins in four days in February, 3-0 at Brighton and then 1-0 against Tottenham.

However, Sean Dyche's side come into this one following back-to-back defeats, 2-0 against Leicester City and 4-0 at the hands of Chelsea.

The latter was the first time Burnley have conceded 4+ in one half, in this case the second, since 20 October 2018 against Manchester City.

So, as mentioned, the Clarets remain in the relegation zone but would climb out of it with a victory here.

Will there be a winner in this huge clash at the Brentford Community Stadium?

Brentford team news

The headline team news last weekend was that Christian Eriksen started a football match for the first time since his collapse at Euro 2020.

To get the best out of him, Thomas Frank switched to a back four for the first time this season, so it'll be interesting to see if he sticks with it.

In this shape, Kristoffer Ajer was forced to fill-in at right-back but Sergi Canós gets to play as a winger, instead of as a wing-back.

Alongside Eriksen, Christian Nørgaard and Vitaly Janelt could complete the trio.

Mathias Jensen, Shandon Baptiste and Frank Onyeka are the other options; Josh Dasilva is injured again.

Ivan Toney will lead the line, buoyant after his hat-trick at Carrow Road.

Burnley team news

As for Burnley, Ben Mee missed the Chelsea defeat last weekend and is doubtful for this one, meaning Nathan Collins will partner James Tarkowski again.

In midfield, Josh Brownhill and Ashly Westwood have been the preferred duo recently, chosen over Jack Cork.

In attack, Maxwel Cornet will surely return to the XI, alongside Wout Weghorst, with Jay Rodriguez joining Ashley Barnes on the bench.
