To some, Brentford's current position in the EPL table might come as a shock, but it's no surprise to dedicated fans. Manager Thomas Frank proved in last year's Carabao Cup capable of outthinking Premier League coaches with a dismantling of Newcastle United, and he's got his Brentford side looking extremely well oiled in the first quarter of the season.
That said, the Bees have found themselves in a little bit of a rut as of late. A strong start which saw them claim victories over Arsenal, West Ham and Wolves, as well as a remarkable point against Liverpool, has been followed by three defeats on the bounce. The most recent of these came against a poor Burnley side who found themselves 3-0 up within 35 minutes.
Brentford desperately need to return to winning ways, so Frank and his men will be thrilled to come up against a Norwich side that have been utterly atrocious so far this season. There is no sugar coating the East Anglia side's first 10 games of the season: zero wins, two draws, eight losses, 25 goals conceded and just three scored. Ouch.
Norwich look destined for an immediate return to the Championship, and some are already starting to question if they will win a single game this season. That's unlikely to happen — they'll eventually get a scoop of luck against some unfortunate team — but manager Daniel Farke badly needs a result if he's to avoid his side being relegated in utter disgrace.
Bringing the likes of loanee Billy Gilmour into the starting XI could provide the team with the creative spark it's been badly missing, but he's only on the bench here. Either way, striker Teemu Pukki is badly in need of some decent service, having been a bystander in too many games this season.
Norwich probably will get a first Premier League victory of the season at some point, and they may look to an out-of-form Brentford as the ideal candidate to claim it against. Of course, Brentford will work hard to ensure they inflict even more misery on a Norwich side that has already endured plenty already.
Here's how they line up:
Brentford: Fernandez, Jorgensen, Jansson, Pinnock, Canos, Janelt, Norgaard, Jensen, Henry, Mbeumo, Toney.
Norwich City: Krul, Aarons, Gibson, Omobamidele, Williams, Dowell, Normann, Lees-Melou, McLean, Rashica, Pukki.
