Crystal Palace v Brentford: match preview


Can Patrick Vieira exact revenge for Arsenal? Crystal Palace’s manager will certainly hope he can after a debut in the dugout to forget against Chelsea. This is surely an early marker for Vieira to be judged by and Palace’s vociferous support, back in full voice at Selhurst Park, will surely want to see something to spoil Brentford’s party. Thomas Frank could not have hoped for a better start and, with Palace in transition, an important second win from two could be on the cards. Graham Searles
