Wednesday at Brentford Community Stadium, as Brentford host Chelsea in the Premier League.

Chelsea go to Brentford Community Stadium with Champion’s League dreams for next season very much alive. They currently sit in fourth as they take on ninth placed Brentford.

Brentford go into this meeting with 13 points secured

With Brentford having secured all three points on their two previous outings, Thomas Frank’s men will doubtless be looking to retain their run after this fixture.

Also, Brentford’s League position speaks for itself, as they continue their rich vein of winning form. Their last win, was the 1st in a row. With 13 points, they currently sit ninth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 3 wins, 3 losses and 4 draws having won three games, drawn four meetings, and lost three matches.

Brentford have won three matches, drawn one game, and lost one game of their five League matches at home this season.

A victory for Brentford would put them on 16 points.

Good Attacking Performance

Brentford will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (18). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Ivan Toney (8), Pelenda Da Silva (2), and Yoane Wissa (2). Brentford have shown a poor defensive solidity so far, having conceded 17 goals in their previous fixtures.

Brentford’s squad has depth, but even so, Thomas Frank is likely to be missing four of they key players when they start Wednesday’s game.

It’s 19 points so far for Chelsea this season, going into this fixture

Having lost to Aston Villa in their last game, Graham Potter’s men must reset and try to gain a positive result in this match.

Also, that’s a run of four wins for Chelsea, a form has placed them in clear contention for Champion’s League qualification. Their position is fourth in the League and they have 19 points, that is, 6W, 2L and 1D having won six meetings, drawn one game, and lost two matches.

Chelsea will travel to Brentford with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with three victories and two defeats.

Chelsea will have 22 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Good Attacking Performance

Chelsea have a good scoring record this season, with 15 netted so far (14 from open play and one penalty). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Raheem Sterling (3), Mason Mount (2), and Kai Havertz (2). Chelsea have conceded 10 goals.

Graham Potter will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of four of his Chelsea players.
