Brentford team news
Thomas Frank has already ruled Mathias Jorgensen out for the brief remainder of the season. Frank Onyeka's angle ligament injury may well have consigned him to the same diagnosis.
While Saman Ghoddos is also unlikely to feature this weekend, Ethan Pinnock and Sergi Canos could potentially play some role.
Southampton's exciting young fullback Tino Livramento has not only been sidelined for the rest of the season, but the club have confirmed that the 19-year-old will likely miss the rest of 2022 with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.
Currently, he's the only known concern for Ralph Hasenhuttl, who should have Armanjo Broja and Che Adams available to spearhead the front line.
Across the last two months, Brentford have recorded the fourth-highest points per game ratio in the Premier League. Southampton, with one win from their last ten matches across all competitions, have tumbled off a cliff during this same time frame.
Southampton were responsible for Brentford's heaviest Premier League defeat of the season in January but have scarcely shown any signs of recapturing their imperious winter form lately. Saturday's meeting may also swing the way of the side on the up.
Prediction: Brentford 2-1 Southampton
