Brentford vs Chelsea Preview

Blues Top Premier League

Thomas Tuchel will certainly be very confident with the way that his side have started the new Premier League season, as the Blues are the early leaders in the top-flight. Chelsea have won five of their seven fixtures that they have played, with their only defeat coming against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge a couple of weeks ago. However, they bounced back from that setback with a 3-1 victory over Southampton before the recent break in play for the international break. 

Trevor Chalobah scored his second goal of the season to open the scoring, before goals in the final ten minutes from Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell wrapped up a deserved win for the Blues. Maintaining that form will be the important factor for the Blues over the coming weeks before the November international break, as they look to put a gap in between themselves and the chasing pack. 

Brentford Looking For Another Big Win

It had been a long wait for Brentford fans to come into the Premier League, but they are certainly making the most of it over the early weeks of the season. The Bees have already taken some notable scalps in the early weeks of the season, including wins against Arsenal and West Ham, and a very entertaining draw against Liverpool at the Brentford Community Stadium. This will be another challenging fixture for them, but the 3-3 draw against Liverpool will only be further evidence that they could take something from this game. 

The character installed in this Brentford team by coach Thomas Frank was evident once again before the international break, as the Bees claimed a dramatic 2-1 win against West Ham United away from home. The game looked to be ending in a draw after the Hammers equalised with ten minutes remaining, but a goal in the 94thminute from Yoane Wissa ensured that it would be maximum points for the Bees.  

Recent Meetings

This is the first ever meeting between the clubs in the Premier League, but the Bees haven’t won in their last six meetings against the Blues. The most recent meeting between the clubs came in January 2017, as Chelsea won 4-0 in an FA Cup fixture. Chelsea have won their last six London derbies on the road, while Brentford are yet to lose a London derby in the top-flight, as they are unbeaten in three. 

Brentford vs Chelsea Prediction

There is little doubt that this will be an entertaining game, as Brentford will take the game to the Blues. The over 2.5 goals bet looks to be a solid selection, and we also wouldn’t be put off by the draw, as Brentford look to take more points from the teams in the big six.
