Ivan Toney will start for Brentford against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The striker was spotted rubbing his hamstring when being substituted during last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal, but head coach Thomas Frank confirmed that he is fit and available for the Eagles’ visit to TW8.

Only Erling Haaland (26) and Harry Kane (17) have scored more Premier League goals than Toney this season (14).

Thomas Strakosha (ankle), Pontus Jansson and Frank Onyeka (both hamstring) will not be in the squad, but Frank is hopeful that the trio could return for Brentford’s game against Fulham on 6 March.

With an almost fully fit squad at his disposal, Frank was asked about the importance of tactical flexibility during the Bees’ 10-game unbeaten run.

Brentford's head coach has switched between 3-5-2 and 4-3-3 systems during the club's time in the Premier League.

“I take the decision, together with my coaching staff, what kind of system we want to play before each match,” he said.

“Earlier in my career I was more focused on a single system – that’s what we do, and we do it very, very well.

“Maybe we tweak it a little bit. With a 4-3-3 system, you could have an in-possession formation and an out-of-possession formation. It can tweak from game to game depending on the pressure and the build-up.

“But I’ve learned that it’s nice to have different systems; right now it’s the 3-5-2 and the 4-3-3 that we can use depending on the opponent and what kind of task is in front of us.

“With where we are at Brentford, it has helped us. It has given us one of many small extra edges that are adding up and giving us the opportunity to be in this good form.”
