And even that only showed a forced change in Graham Potter’s final XI, replacing Enock Mwepu with Pervis Estupinan.
Kaoru Mitoma and Adam Lallana have been pushing for a start.
Obviously Mwepu is out of contention now but De Zerbi said there were no new injury worries.
Brentford played a 3-5-2 at Newcastle last week and were swept aside to go 5-1.
A 0-0 draw at Bournemouth followed, in which they had a back four with Rico Henry on the left.
The Bees don’t tend to play with a back three at home, so Henry – a player Albion admired in his Walsall days – could be a more conventional left-back.
Brentford will be without captain Pontus Jansson.
The centre-back is still struggling with a hamstring injury and will remain on the touchline along with midfielder Christian Norgaard (Achilles).
Striker Keane Lewis-Potter is back to support boss Thomas Frank after a foot problem, but substitute goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha recently picked up an ankle problem that will sideline him for a few weeks.
