Where: Stamford Bridge, London, EnglandWhen: Saturday, October 28, 2:30 pm CET
The Blues wasted a two-goal lead against Arsenal, which still itches Poch and his boys. On the other side, the Bees have finally snapped a negative streak last weekend, with them beating Burnley. They come into this event without any pressure, hoping for a surprise but having a perfectly clear understanding of their underdog position. As for the Blues, they need to win. Otherwise, they could lose the momentum.
Chelsea vs. Brentford Preview
After three consecutive victories, Chelsea slipped against Arsenal, playing only 2-2. The reason why we say “slipped” it’s because Pochettino’s unit led 2-0 before allowing two goals in the final phase of the event. Overall, the Blues’ fans and players were heavily disappointed following the final whistle.
An interesting trend appeared in the final two games Chelsea played, and that’s a high efficiency. Both saw goals on both ends and over 2.5, which wasn’t the case in the near past. The majority of their events ended with two goals at max.
Chelsea’s form at home is highly unstable, with the Blues winning three games and having two ties and losses across all the competitions.
The Bees had to wait almost two months to post a victory. They blew away Burnley, 3-0, which was the first triumph for Thomas Franks’ gang since the EFL meeting against Newport in late August.
After that, the Bees had four losses and two ties, often not having any luck when facing the rivals. Brentford had some injury problems as well, but hopefully, for their fans, that could stop after last weekend’s win.
Their games on the road are very tough, and in four away meetings since the campaign started, Brentford managed to win once, have one tie and two losses, yet with a positive goal difference of five scored and four conceded hits.

Chelsea vs. Brentford Head to Head Games
The Bees were extremely successful against Chelsea last year. After a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge, they would beat the Blues in their own house, at Stamfrod, 0-2 in the second game of the year.
Chelsea vs. Brentford Predictions
The Blues are in better shape and lousy 15 minutes against Arsenal can’t erase their previous improvement. The Bees have also improved as well, but we still give an edge to the hosts, who simply have to triumph here. With all the qualities they possess and the home-turf advantage, Chelsea is an obvious choice.
