Palace draw a blank away at Brentford

Brentford 0-0 Palace

Crystal Palace were held to a goalless draw away at Brentford.

Yet another draw for Patrick Vieira’s side means they are still to win a league game in 2022.

In a drab encounter, Palace keeper Vicente Guaita denied Bryan Mbeumo in a one-on-one early on.

Jordan Ayew blazed the Eagles’ best chance high and wide when put through by Odsonne Edouard.

Brentford claimed for a penalty when Marc Guehi handled the ball under pressure from Christian Norgaard.

However, referee Simon Hooper deemed that Norgaard has nudged the Palace defender.

Despite having the greater possession, Palace were unable to properly test the Brentford goal and it ended 0-0.
