Missing duo makes life hard at Brentford

Getting any sort of result in our weekend game at Brentford is looking tougher than ever after the events against Everton!

Alvarez missing for Brentford game

No, I’m not talking the performance but the fact that two key players will be missing as a result having managed to get themselves suspended.

Edson Alvarez and Lucas Paqueta have proved two players whom we can not to afford at any time – never mind in the current circumstances.

The Bees haven’t been at their best this season but came up with a shock winm over Chelsea at the weekend and will certainly be looking for another three points given their form has picked up.

Remember too that we haven’t beaten the team since they were promoted two seasons ago at Premier League level although we managed a 1-0 win an an FA Cup clash game of course.

How Moyes sets up his first X1 remains to be seen but one assumes that Mavropanos will be called up and Soucek will return.
