Follow live coverage as AFC Bournemouth face Brentford in the Premier League today.

“It’s very impressive,” Thomas Frank said of the Cherries. “After a game like that [defeat to Liverpool], you either fall apart or stick together and show that you’re stronger. Bournemouth is a club with a lot of experience; lots of their players have played in the Premier League before. It will be another big challenge. Gary and his staff and players have done a very good job. On the results side they’ve had two draws and a win, and the performances have been very solid. They’re difficult to play against. They look good.”

Bournemouth and Brentford settle for a point each after a goalless game at the Vitality Stadium. The away side looked the most likely to score throughout the match, having opportunities on either side of half-time. Damsgaard had a low whipped shot palmed away by Neto in the first half, with Ajer and Jansson failing to trouble the goalkeeper with headers. However, their best chance of breaking the deadlock came through Toney, who was quiet for most of the match. Latching onto a flicked pass from Dasilva, the striker could only shoot the ball over the bar from close range. As for O'Neil’s side, they were toothless in attack for the majority of the game but could have had a penalty on 21-minutes. Racing into the box, Zemura went down under the challenge of Ajer who seemed to have missed the ball completely and clattered into the defender. With no penalty given, referee Bramall was sent to the screen to check the tackle, but decided the Brentford man did nothing wrong and stuck with his original decision.

Bournemouth have been at their most threatening so far when they have looked to retain possession and sustain attacks by slowly moving the ball up the pitch. With Moore and Solanke, they have been eager to launch the ball forward to their tall attackers, but have regularly lost the ball. Instead, they should find Zemura and Tavernier who have carried the ball well. As for Brentford, they must get Toney more involved. Frustrated for most of the first half, the striker has had the least amount of touches out of any player (15)..

The game is goalless at half-time. Brentford have the better of the first half, with Damsgaard having their first opportunity. On his first Premier League start, the former Sampdoria man cut into the box from the left before unleashing a curling effort that was pushed away by Neto. Defenders Jansson and Ajer failed to covert headers, with the home side having just one shot in the opening 45 minutes. However, they could have been awarded a penalty. After Zemura was clattered into by a sliding Ajer inside the box, referee Bramall was asked to visit the monitor to analyse the challenge. However, after contemplation, he stuck with his original decision and no penalty was given.
