Brentford play host to Southampton in Premier League this weekend with both sides already looking safely over the line this season.

Confirmed safety is still some way down the line for both Southampton and Brentford this month but the drop zone is drifting away from the Bees and the Saints.

Thomas Frank has confirmed the end of the campaign for injured trio Frank Onyeka, Mathias Jorgensen and Saman Ghoddos.

Ethan Pinnock and Sergi Canos are both another week away from a comeback and Frank could stick with an unchanged line up.

As for Southampton, teenage defender Tino Livramento is out until 2022/23 with Romain Perraud set to slot into the visitors back line.

Ralph Hassenhuttl may opt to reshuffle his attack with the misfiring Armando Broja given a chance to rediscover his touch in place of veteran Shane Long.

This one kicks off with a 3pm start on Saturday at the Brentford Community Stadium.
