Crystal Palace clash with Brentford in another Premier League London derby this afternoon.

Thomas Frank’s Bees are buzzing after their 2-0 win against Arsenal on the opening night of the season, but they’ll need to be at their best again today as Patrick Vieira’s Palace will be desperate to make amends for their 3-0 reverse at Chelsea last week.
