Crystal Palace vs Brentford: How to watch on TV, live stream, kick-off time and team news

Crystal Palace and fellow London-based side Brentford will take to the pitch at Selhurst Park on Tuesday evening, as both teams look to soar up the Premier League table.

Palace impressed away at champions Manchester City last time out but couldn’t hold on to their surprise 2-0 lead as Erling Haaland netted a hat-trick of goals to complete a 4-2 comeback.

Brentford meanwhile scored late on against Everton on Saturday to avoid defeat and claim an all-important point, just two weeks after thrashing Manchester United 4-0 on the same ground.

Both the Eagles and the Bees will now look to build on their decent starts to the season under the lights in midweek, and a win could see either side push themselves well into the top half.

But history suggests there may not be much between them as the only two previous Premier League clashes ended in 0-0 draws. It awaits to be seen whether a similar outcome will come of this fixture once again.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Crystal Palace vs Brentford, including the latest team news, the kick-off time, and how to watch the game on UK television.
