Brentford lost a pulsating clash at Fulham but they could have easily won it after storming back from 2-0 down to make it 2-2. VAR calls, close calls and being undone by an Aleksandar Mitrovic header was their downfall. Brentford are the heavy favorites to win heading into this game and Frank’s side must now cope with increased expectation levels given how well they played against Manchester United in their 4-0 win in their opening home game of the season.
As for Everton, Lampard needs reinforcements and he may lose key winger Anthony Gordon. Chelsea continue to chase the 21-year-old and it seems inevitable that Gordon will be leaving Goodison Park in the final days of the transfer window. Everton have a real lack of options in attack given Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s injury and that is the main problem for Lampard early in the season. Their narrow defeats to Chelsea and Aston Villa showcased they are more resilient and they showed that to grab a point at home against Forest despite being second best for most of that clash.
In-form players to keep an eye on
Brentford’s Ivan Toney has started the season really well and he continues to have a formidable partnership with Bryan Mbeumo up top. They will look to stretch this Everton defensive line and press them high up the pitch.
Everton have sat back and soaked up plenty of pressure so far this season and Jordan Pickford has had a lot of work to do. Anthony Gordon has looked as bright as ever but will this be his final game as an Everton player?
Brentford team news, injuries, lineup options
