Brentford – Chelsea Predictions and Preview

  • It’s proven to be a very tricky few weeks for Brentford, who saw their Premier League losing run stretch to three matches after they were dispatched 4-2 by London rivals West Ham on Monday. As such, the Bees begin this matchday sat just five points clear of the relegation spots as pressure begins to build on manager Thomas Frank, though a matchup against Chelsea could actually have come at an opportune time for his side.
  • That’s because Brentford have kept three straight clean sheets in the Premier League against the Blues, with only the two Manchester sides ever keeping four in a row against Chelsea in the competition. The hosts will be chasing that bit of history then this time round, alongside another as they look to claim a first league winning double over the Stamford Bridge outfit since the 1938/39 season, following their routine 2-0 away success in October’s reverse fixture.
  • A few days on from their League Cup Final loss to Liverpool in extra time at Wembley, Chelsea grabbed a morale-boosting victory as they beat Championship high-flyers Leeds 3-2 in FA Cup action. With that competition acting as their last chance for silverware this season, a last minute Conor Gallagher strike definitely came at the perfect time to spare manager Mauricio Pochettino’s blushes.
  • Now the Blues will look to secure back-to-back victories for the third time in 2024 across all competitions, and their recent form in London derbies suggests that success here is a distinct possibility. Chelsea have now won each of their last four such outings in the Premier League, though their return of no clean sheets across their last ten away matches in England’s top-flight remains less than ideal.
  • Players to watch: Brentford’s Neal Maupay grabbed his sixth league goal of the season last time out, though he’s only ever faced two sides more often than Chelsea without scoring (P7). Nicolas Jackson netted his tenth competitive goal of the season for the Blues in midweek, his last two coming before half-time, as opposed to his first eight which all came after the break.
  • Hot stat: Ten of Chelsea’s 13 away Premier League matches this season have witnessed both sides score – the joint-most of any side.
