Comments:

League position: 13th Crystal Palace had now failed to scored in three consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since July 2020. Palace remained without a win in their last nine London derbies in the Premier League (lost five). Patrick Vieira became the first manager to avoid defeat in his first home game in the Premier League in charge of the Eagles since Alan Pardew in 2015. Crystal Palace named eight of a possible nine substitutes.

Comments:

League position: 4th This was Brentford's first away game in the top division since a 2-1 win at Sunderland in League Division One on 24 May 1947. The Bees were now unbeaten in league games since 3 March 2021; longer than any other team currently in the Premier Division. They had now kept a clean sheet win eight of their last ten league games.
