I hadn’t realised they have only lost one prem game so far. Three draws. Our pre season game will be of no advantage as they have built momentum since then. I am going 2-1 win.

I expect Moyes to name an unchanged starting 11 from the Leeds game. Other than Johnson possibly coming in for Coufal.

I can see this being a tough game. They haven’t had a thrashing yet results wise. And I can see them trying to frustrate us, with their 5 at the back formation.

When we get our chances we need to be ruthless.

Can see this being similar to the Palace game. A frustrating score draw.

Don't feel so confident about this one. We have a had a busy few weeks and might see a lacklustre performance.

I’m a bit worried we might be in for a SURPRISE…

David Moyes on the bbc preview


“David Moyes says he is not surprised by the progress Brentford have made this season.

The Bees, back in the top flight for the first time since 1947, are ninth in the table and claimed a creditable point in a thrilling 3-3 draw against Liverpool last weekend.

"I have been impressed but not surprised," said Moyes.

"They have put together a really strong squad and are well-coached and a well-run football club. I do not think anybody should be surprised by it but we have to try and get a victory on Sunday.

"Ivan Toney has done really well since he has come into the Premier League but we should not be surprised because he did really well in the Championship before, scoring those goals."

Coufal and Fredericks are both potentially available, with Coufal the more probable.

Think Brentford play with 3 in midfield and wingbacks so would have Fornals Central of the 3 to drop in and help Rice/Soucek.

Try to get Bowen and Benny to hold their width high and push their wingbacks deep which should allow Cresswell and Coufal plenty of possession to deliver quality. Thinking we are due a Big Tom goal at the back stick.

Need to be careful of Toney dropping onto our full backs for headers too.

Tough game with little prep and some tired legs so reckon will be a tight 60 mins and will give away a few chances but get a 2-1 win (Soucek, Toney. Fredericks off the bench) I'd be delighted by that. (345/1 on PP but I won't jinx it by having a flutter).

We shouldn't have had that pre season friendly. They'll know how we work.

Someone format the thread title properly, ffs.

How hard is it to use the same formatting as everyone else?

A win could see us up to 3rd, a loss as low as 11th.

Four of the six teams above us meet (Citeh at Liverpool, Everton at Man U) with Chelsea playing the winless Southampton & Brighton meeting the streaking Gooners.

Brentford are that promoted team this season. The one of the three that does well. Hopefully we can do to them what we did to Leeds last season.

They are a big side, this will counter one of our usual strengths, and have shown they are up for the battle. Tough test but if we can win the physical battle then the likes of Bowen, Fornals and Benrahma might just have too much for them. Close game either way.

Just having a look at their overall record against us.

We've won 22, lost 15 & drawn 11. Only met them twice in my lifetime & that was 1992/93 season in what I think would have been the inaugural League Division 1 season (old 2nd division).

Goals from Butler, Keen, Morley & Allen saw us win a comfortable 4 nil. Speedie & Ludo were the only non English players.

We drew nil nil at their ground that season.

None of the three permutations for a result would surprise me here, particularly given how many of our likely starters played on Thursday.

They've had some joy bullying Arsenal and Liverpool's backlines in the air in a way I don't think will be as effective against us, but along the floor Mbeumo is due to find his shooting boots – has been getting into some good positions this season without putting them away. I think that avenue, particularly the 'flick on behind' thing Toney often does for runners could cause Ogbonna the odd problem.

Be an interesting game this one. As others have said, Brentford are the promoted team that are punching this season and will fancy their chances of grabbing at least a draw on Sunday.
I have no idea how this will pan out, all I do know is we are playing together, and playing for our manager. Love it.

Whilst acknowledging they've done well so far, I would still be surprised to lose at home to them.

We can apparently return Coufal to the starting line up.

I hope Bowen scores.
