Brentford were the team of the Premier League 2021/22 opening weekend as they toppled Arsenal on the first night of the campaign.
The Bees looked fluid and feisty across the pitch, proving they will cause plenty of issues for teams up and down the league this term.
Thomas Frank will be keen to keep his squad’s feet on the ground but the refreshing boss has made a strong impression in his first taste of Premier League football. See here for our full Premier League TV schedule.
Unfortunately it wasn’t quite so smooth sailing for Patrick Vieira during his own Premier League managerial debut after taking the reins at Crystal Palace.
The Eagles’ have opted for a fresh approach after parting ways with Roy Hodgson at the end of the former England manager’s contract this summer but a 3-0 defeat to Chelsea failed to inspire any early confidence that the gamble is likely to pay off.

Our prediction: Crystal Palace v Brentford
Brentford won’t go all-out for victory in every game and, following their early win over Arsenal, they simply don’t need to.
They’re still feeling their way into the Premier League and will be keen to test themselves against a very different challenge such as the one Palace present.
Palace are a side in transition but you can still expect a ‘safety first’ approach in the early stages of Vieira’s rein as he seeks to balance installing his philosophy with pragmatic results that will buy him time to successfully achieve that goal.
