Brentford vs Chelsea Match Preview As The Blues visit Brentford Community Stadium

After a¬†2-0 win over Aston Villa on Sunday, thanks to¬†Mason Mount’s brace, Graham Potter’s side are making a trip to Brentford Community stadium for which is understood to be their tenth Premier League game of the season

The Blues now hold a three-point lead over Manchester United in fourth place in the Premier League table, eight points behind leaders Arsenal with a game in hand.

Chelsea will be out to record a sixth win on the bounce in all competitions when they travel to West London to take on Brighton who sits tight on 9th position with 13 points.

While the Bees goals have dried up across their recent winless run, Brentford’s two goals against Brighton took their total for the campaign to 18, which is six more than they’d scored at this stage of last season, and a tally which only four sides can better coming into the round.

Brentford will hope that’s a good omen to end a blunt attacking trend that’s seen them fail to score in four of their last six London derby home matches (W2, D2, L2).

Thomas Frank’s men saw off Brighton 2-0 at the weekend to remain in the top half of the Premier League, with Ivan Toney continuing his goalscoring escapades and keeping pace with the division’s heavy hitters.
