The west London derby between Fulham and Brentford will be played for the first time in Premier League history.
The Cottagers prevailed in their most recent meeting, which took place in the 2020 play-off final, although the Bees have had a better trajectory since.
Even though Thomas Frank’s team recently humiliated Manchester United, the fact that it came as less of a surprise says a lot about the caliber of Brentford.
In fact, at this point, it seems unlikely that there could be any kind of “second season syndrome.”
In contrast, Fulham has earned two points from its opening two games and has displayed a level of tenacity that hasn’t been typical of the team in recent years.
Here is all the information you require for the West London Derby.
