The last time Chelsea faced Brentford, who is battling to stay in the Premier League this season but is eight points clear from the relegation zone. Chelsea made it to the League Cup semi-final by beating Brentford 2-0 at the Community Stadium in the quarter-finals, thanks to an own goal by Pontus Jansson. At the same time, Jorginho penalised the quarter-finals with a penalty goal. With two goals in the last 10 minutes of regulation, Chelsea stuns Brentford to advance to the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup. This was a good chance for the newly promoted team to showcase their quality but failed as they went against the European Champions; it was the last 10 minutes in the game where Chelsea turned the game into their favour.
They also met in the reverse fixture of the Premier League earlier this season, where Chelsea visited Brentford, and that was the first meeting between these two teams since 1947. Brentford was looking good for their game against the European Champions and displayed good performance from each player. The Chelsea defender Ben Chilwell scored in the 45th minute to give Chelsea the lead. The scoreline remained the same till the end, and it was a very well-fought win for Chelsea, who was at the top spot after the win. This clean sheet also marked the seventh clean sheet in their last 13 games.
Chelsea is having a good season till now as they have also won the FIFA Club World Cup, of which they were also rewarded with a winners badge that is seen on their jersey. Chelsea has won all five of their previous five games in the Premier League. In their last game, Chelsea faced Middlesbrough in the FA Cup quarter-final. The European champions dominated the game and controlled the ball for maximum time; Chelsea also enjoyed 61% ball possession. Chelsea won the game 2-0 thanks to two first-half goals from Lukaku (15th min) and Ziyech (31st min), and they also had 11 shots on goal, from which only four were on target.
Brentford in the Premier League is at the 15th position with 30 points. In the previous five league matches, Brentford only registered two wins against Norwich City and Burnley. In these two wins, they scored five goals (2 against Burnley and three against Norwich) and conceded only one against Norwich. The other three defeats were against Leicester City, Newcastle United and Arsenal, they realised six goals in these defeats (two against each team) and scored two goals (Leicester and Arsenal). Last week, Leicester City welcomed them and defeated them with two first-half goals; Brentford tried to cut and made many attacking attempts. They were successful in the 85th minute when Yoane Wissa scored the goal, but that was not enough as the scoreline ended 2-1.
Mason Mount has been playing exceptionally well in the Premier League for the Blues as he has scored the most number of goals (8) and also made most assists (7), with one more London team coming to the Stamford Bridge I feel Mason Mount will be impressive in the game.
