Despite the Eagles and Bees meeting in the league on just four occasions since 1964 – all draws in the Premier League – there remain historical ties aplenty.
Our list, however, hones in on just five such players, who have made senior appearances for both teams in (relatively) recent times…
(Brentford 2011 (loan), Palace 2017-present)
While Palace’s current No.15 is more regularly deployed as a midfielder these days, the young Jeffrey Schlupp played in multiple different roles, including up-front in a goal-packed spell on loan at Brentford in early 2011.
The then-19-year-old scored six times in nine appearances for the Bees in the EFL League One, also starting in their defeat to Carlisle United in the EFL Trophy Final at Wembley, before returning to parent club Leicester City, from where he moved to Palace in 2017.
Schlupp celebrated 200 appearances in the red and blue during Monday evening's defeat to Arsenal at Selhurst Park.
