The Crystal Palace vs Brentford live stream will see Brentford attempt to follow up their opening weekend victory against Arsenal with another 3 points, this time at Crystal Palace.

The game will kick off today (Saturday, August 21) at Selhurst Park in South London. It will be the first full capacity game at the stadium since March 2020, so the Palace fans should be in good voice to help their team recover from a tough opening fixture.

Away at Chelsea was always going to be a difficult first game of the season for Crystal Palace, and so it proved to be. The Eagles lost convincing, with their West London rivals cruising to a 3-0 win. A home game against a newly promoted side could be just the tonic Crystal Palace need to kickstart their season. 

New boss Patrick Vieira is certainly not averse to making changes, bringing in Conor Gallagher for his debut and giving Joachim Andersen his first start. Christian Benteke is also recalled.

However, Brentford are keen to prove they're no soft touch at this level. The Bees stung an average Arsenal side in the first match of the new EPL season, coming away from the Emirates Stadium with all 3 points. They'll be looking to continue that strong start with another result against Palace. 

Expect Brentford's Ivan Toney to be eager to open his top-flight account here. The forward has a point to prove after being unceremoniously sold by Newcastle United three years ago. Unsurprisingly, the Bees are unchanged from last week's game.

Here's how they line up:

Crystal Palace: Guaita, Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell, Kouyate, Schlupp, McArthur, Benteke, Gallagher, Zaha.

Substitutes: Butland, Matthews, Tomkins, Ayew, Mateta, Kelly, Riedewald, Rak-Saky.

Brentford: Raya, Ajer, Jansson, Pinnock, Henry, Janelt, Onyeka, Mbeumo, Norgaard, Canos, Toney.

Substitutes: Goode, Forss, Wissa, Fernandez, Ghoddos, Dervisoglu, Bidstrup, Sorensen, Roerslev.
