Brentford will host Crystal Palace at the Gtech Community Stadium for the Saturday London derby, with hosts having a chance to move into the top six of the Premier League standings if things go their way. In their most recent match, the Bees held the former league leaders Arsenal to a 1-1 tie, while Patrick Vieira’s team also played to a scoreless draw with Brighton & Hove Albion.
Few Arsenal supporters would argue that their team deserved to win the match against a motivated Brentford, but Thomas Frank’s team was undoubtedly grateful to escape with a point after an outrageous officiating error. Leandro Trossard, an Arsenal substitute, scored the game’s first goal in the 66th minute, but Ivan Toney netted the equalizer only eight minutes later.
Brentford has not experienced defeat since being thrashed 4-0 by Aston Villa in October. Only Newcastle United (17 games) has a longer such run, and all three of Brentford’s most recent home games have finished in victories. In the Gtech Community Stadium this year, only Arsenal has been able to defeat Frank’s club.

In the match between Palace and Brighton at Selhurst Park, where Solly March opened the scoring for the Seagulls just after the hour mark and James Tomkins netted the equalizer six minutes later, refereeing controversy also reared its ugly head. Pervis Estupinan appeared to have scored a goal for Brighton that was flawless, but the strike was disallowed after VAR referee John Brooks drew the offside line from the wrong defender, causing debate in the city.
As a result, both Brentford and Palace should consider themselves fortunate to have earned a point at the weekend. Vieira’s struggling team is now 12th in the standings, but they still have a comfortable seven-point cushion above the relegation zone. Palace has now lost seven straight games since defeating Bournemouth on New Year’s Eve. However, holding Manchester United, Newcastle United, and Brighton to draws is no small accomplishment.
