As the English Premier League resumes after the international break, an up-and-coming Brentford side will host Chelsea in a late match on Saturday.

 

Brentford have made a strong start to the season, defeating Arsenal in the first game before drawing with Liverpool.

 

Chelsea has had a strong start to the season, sitting atop the English Premier League table. They have yet to lose an EPL match this season and will face a difficult task on Saturday evening.

Prior to the international break, Thomas Tuchel’s side cruised past Southampton, while the Bees defeated West Ham United 2-1.

Brentford has only lost one game this season, a 1-0 loss to Brighton, and has won games against Arsenal and West Ham United, as well as drawing with Crystal Palace and Liverpool.

Brentford vs Chelsea  News from the team

Shandon Baptiste was substituted in the first half against West Ham after dislocating his shoulder, and he will not play here, while Mads Sorensen and Josh Dasilva will be out for the foreseeable future.

Chelsea have more problems to deal with, as veteran Thiago Silva is unlikely to play due to his late return from international duty, but Reece James and N’Golo Kante have returned to training following ankle injuries and coronavirus, respectively.

However, the Blues have been dealt an injury blow, with Romelu Lukaku withdrawing from international duty due to muscular overload, and Antonio Rudiger missing out if he does not recover from back pain in time.

 

Brentford hasn’t beaten Chelsea in any competition since the 1938-39 season, with the Blues winning the FA Cup in consecutive seasons in 2012-13 and 2016-17, albeit in a replay after a 2-2 draw in the first season.

  Venue and kick off time

Kickoff is set for 5:30 p.m. at Brentford Community Stadium.

 Referee

Anthony Taylor (England) will be the man in charge of the match
