The Burnley vs Brentford live stream sees a key battle between one side in the relegation zone and one that's confounded expectations by rising up the table in their first ever Premier League season.
Burnley are one of three Premier League teams without a win yet — and it's no coincidence that all three of those teams are at the bottom of the standings.
Meanwhile, Brentford are in a much more secure position in 12th place with three wins, three losses and three draws. The Bees have been a surprise this season, starting off with a stunning victory over Arsenal and performing well since then. Manager Thomas Frank may not have superstar players, but he has deployed his resources effectively.
That said, they've been in a bit of a funk in Premier League action recently, with two straight losses. But a mid-week Carabao Cup victory over Stoke City could give them a confidence boost when they travel to Turf Moor. Brentford haven't won there since 1996, but this season could well see them end that trend, since they remain unbeaten on the road.
Burnley have a tough task ahead of them to stay up, and manager Sean Dyche is already counseling supporters not to panic. "You can always get the points you need. We’ve seen it down the years with various stories," he told the media.
While it may not be time to panic just yet, it's certainly time to be concerned. Perhaps the Clarets can figure out a way to notch up their first win, or at least take a point off Brentford; they gritted their way to a draw in their last Premier League outing against Southampton, after all.
Here's how they line up:
Burnley: Pope, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Gudmundsson , Brownhill, Westwood, Cornet, McNeil, Wood.
Brentford: Fernandez, Henry, Pinnock, Jansson, Jorgensen, Norgaard, Canos, Jensen, Onyeka, Forss, Toney.
