Line-ups – Brentford
After failing to break into the England squad for the World Cup and lots of controversy surrounding him, striker Ivan Toney starts (£7.4m) the match. He will be looking to add to his 10 goals and two assists for the season so far.
The big news is that Harry Kane (£11.6m) starts the match. The striker will be hoping to put his World Cup woes behind him and continue his fantastic start to the campaign so far. Ivan Perisic (£5.5m) also starts. The Croatian defender played deep into the World Cup so it will be interesting to see how he performs today.
