Brentford predicted lineup vs Everton - Premier League

26 November 2021 06:05

Brentford host Everton on Sunday afternoon, in an attempt to get a first win in six Premier League outings.

They started the campaign in impressive fashion, surprising the top flight with a solid start and beating Arsenal and West Ham on their way to collecting 12 points in their opening seven fixtures. However, their subsequent five matches have yielded just one point. They played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Newcastle last time out, putting an end to a worrying run of four straight defeats.

Brentford's opponents also come into the tie in concerning form, having failed to win in their last six outings. Everton also started the season brilliantly, although have slipped down to mid-table mediocrity since.

Here's who Thomas Frank could field to get a big win this weekend.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Alvaro Fernandez (GK) - In David Raya's long-term absence, the Huesca loanee will once again start between the sticks.

Mads Roerslev (CB) - Frank has a few injury concerns in defence and, after a decent outing last time out, Roerslev should definitely be in line for a second Premier League start.

Pontus Jansson (CB) - Has featured in every league outing so far this campaign and will skipper the side once more here.

Ethan Pinnock (CB) - What a rise its been for Pinnock, now in line for his 13th Premier League appearance of the season.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Sergi Canos (RWB) - Has looked at home for the most part in the top flight and will look for a fourth goal involvement of the campaign on Sunday.

Saman Ghoddos (CM) - Wasn't all that effective last time out, but could be in line for another opportunity as Everton visit.

Christian Norgaard (CM) - A consistent performer as the anchor and conductor of Brentford's midfield, the Denmark international should be in line for a 13th league outing of the campaign.

Frank Onyeka (CM) - Made a real impact when entering the field of play against Newcastle, and deserves to be reinstated into the starting XI in place of the underwhelming Vitaly Janelt.

Rico Henry (LWB) - Has enjoyed a solid campaign to this point and has discovered some scoring form of late, notching two in his last two games. Seamus Coleman may be in for a tough afternoon.

3. Forwards

Bryan Mbeumo (ST) - The 22-year-old has looked a real danger on one of the world's biggest stages this term. In Harry Redknapp's words, a top, top playah.

Ivan Toney (ST) - Yeah but will Toney be able to do it in the Premier League? Yep, yep he will.
