Brentford lost a heart-pounding clash at Fulham but could easily have won it after coming back from 2-0 down to make it 2-2. VAR calls, close calls and being undone by a header from Aleksandar Mitrovic was his undoing. Brentford are heavy favorites to win going into this game and Frank’s side now face a higher level of expectation given how well they played against Manchester United in their 4-0 home opener victory. it’s from the season.
As for Everton, Lampard needs reinforcements and could lose key winger Anthony Gordon. Chelsea continue to pursue the 21-year-old and it seems inevitable that Gordon will leave Goodison Park in the closing days of the transfer window. Everton have a real lack of attacking options given Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s injury and that is Lampard’s main problem at the start of the season. His narrow defeats to Chelsea and Aston Villa showed that they are more resilient and they proved it to earn a point at home against Forest despite being second best for most of that clash.
Fit players to watch
Brentford’s Ivan Toney has started the season very well and continues to have a formidable partnership with Bryan Mbeumo at the top. They will be looking to stretch this Everton defensive line and put pressure on them high up the pitch.
Everton have sat and absorbed a lot of pressure so far this season and Jordan Pickford has had a lot of work to do. Anthony Gordon has looked as brilliant as ever, but will this be his last game as an Everton player?
