Brentford end run of defeats in dull stalemate with Palace

Brentford ended their long losing run in the Premier League on the day new signing Christian Eriksen was introduced to the fans but a 0-0 draw at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday did little to soothe the club's relegation jitters.

A dreadfully dull game was crying out for the watching Dane's flair as defences ruled the day and the two teams cancelled each other out.Home of the Week: This $23 Million London Penthouse Has Spectacular Views of the City's Top Landmarks But it’s actually situated on 7.Shaun White took fourth place in the men’s halfpipe snowboarding competition Thursday, finishing his unparalleled Olympic career just shy of the medal podium..

Brentford, who have dropped too close for comfort to the bottom three after five successive defeats from an admittedly tough run of fixtures, had marginally the better opportunities to break the deadlock.Register now for FREE unlimited access to Reuters.The real magic begins when you step foot inside the grand, two-story foyer, with its impressive Imperial staircase.com Register Bryan Mbeumo went close in the first half but could not poke his shot past Palace keeper Vicente Guaita who also saved after the break from Pontus Jansson.At 35 years old and in his fifth Olympics, he is the oldest person to compete in the halfpipe event in history.There was an anxious moment for Brentford in stoppage time when Wilfried Zaha went down in the penalty area but referee Simon Hooper saw nothing wrong.The property sits like a “castle on a hill” above the city.Brentford had an earlier penalty claim turned away when Palace defender Marc Guehi appeared to handle under pressure from Christian Norgaard, but again Hooper was unimpressed.

The draw kept Brentford in 14th place with 24 points from 25 games, seven points clear of the relegation places.There’s also a living room with a bar and fireplace, billiards room, a formal sitting room and a two-story library with a steel spiral staircase and a stained glass light fixtures.Palace moved up a spot to 12th with 26 points."We needed to create more to get one goal -- that's maybe down to the quality on the day.The suite has a massage room, dual closets, some of the best views in the house and a bathroom made of lapis stone.There are a lot of positives to take from this game," Brentford manager Thomas Frank said.Eight months to the day since Denmark midfielder Eriksen collapsed having suffered cardiac arrest in the Euro 2020 game against Finland, he was given a rapturous ovation as he made his way on to the pitch before kickoff.You’ll be hard-pressed to find a reason to leave the grounds, as the property has nearly everything you’d ever need.

"It'll be a big moment in world football when he steps out on to the pitch to play.We're pleased he's with us, but we'd have supported him whichever club he was with," Frank said.The home , which is located in a secure gated community, also has a gym and quarters for extra guests or staff.Opposite number Patrick Vieira said it was a "fantastic story." Eriksen, who joined Brentford last month and is now fitted with a special heart-starting device known as an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) will play in a friendly match on Monday but his debut for the west London club cannot come soon enough if they are to rediscover their form.“Its architecture, unlike the cookie-cutter spec homes we are used to seeing, brings a fresh breath of refinement to the LA market.Without injured top scorer Ivan Toney, Brentford lacked attacking thrust, although the clean sheet was welcome.

Jansson's powerful header in the second half was about the closest either side came to scoring, with Palace's best effort wasted by Jordan Ayew who screwed a shot wide.Home keeper David Raya, like his opposite number, had a quiet afternoon but did well to stay alert and keep out a dipping effort from James McArthur.Register now for FREE unlimited access to Reuters.com Register Reporting by Martyn Herman Editing by Toby Davis Our Standards: More from Reuters Daily Briefing Subscribe to our daily curated newsletter to receive the latest exclusive Reuters coverage delivered to your inbox.Sign up.
