    A look at some of the key statistics ahead of Matchweek 22 in the Premier League

    Brentford's Sergi Canos will be fit to face his former club after a recent hamstring issue, and fellow wing-back Rico Henry could also return on the opposite left flank.

    Henry has not played since December 22 due to a thigh injury but Brentford remain without a handful of other key personnel.

    Goalkeeper David Raya (knee), Charlie Goode (hamstring), Mathias Jorgensen (thigh), Julian Jeanvier (knee) and Josh Dasilva (hip) remain on the treatment table, while Frank Onyeka is away with Nigeria at the Africa Cup of Nations.
