Brentford XI vs Crystal Palace: Predicted lineup, confirmed team news and injury latest

Arlo Gibbons


Brentford’s midfielder Mee is expected to make a return to the team for their upcoming match against Crystal Palace. Mee had missed their previous game against Fulham due to a calf injury but underwent checks last Saturday to assess his condition. The decision was made not to risk him in that game, but he is now hopeful for a comeback.

However, midfielder Josh Dasilva will not be available for the match due to a hamstring strain. It is anticipated that Dasilva will not be ready for first-team action until mid-September. This absence will be a blow for Brentford, as Dasilva has been an important player for them.

Brentford, who currently have four points from their first two Premier League games, are planning to start Bryan Mbeumo in their attack. Mbeumo will be part of a three-pronged attack, along with Wissa and Schade. Unfortunately for Brentford, they will not have the services of striker Ivan Toney, who recently signed with the Stellar agency. Toney is serving an eight-month ban for 232 breaches of the FA betting rule E8. As a result, he will not be able to play for Brentford until January 17.

The predicted Brentford XI for the upcoming match includes Flekken as the goalkeeper, Hickey, Collins, Pinnock, and Henry as defenders, Janelt, Norgaard, and Jensen in midfield, and Mbeumo, Wissa, and Schade as attackers.

The match between Brentford and Crystal Palace is scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 26, 2023, at the Gtech Community Stadium. Kick-off is set for 3 pm BST.

Overall, Brentford will be eager to continue their positive start to the Premier League season with a win against Crystal Palace. While they will be without Josh Dasilva and Ivan Toney, they will be hopeful for the return of Mee, who has been a key player for them. The team will look to their attacking trio of Mbeumo, Wissa, and Schade to deliver the goals and secure another victory.
