Premier League Football Prediction – Brentford vs Chelsea

Chelsea are back in Premier League action on Saturday evening when they are facing Brentford, who are a surprise package. In anticipation of this match after the international break, here’s our Premier League football prediction – Brentford vs Chelsea.

The Blues are now in first place, with a one-point lead over Liverpool. This is following their 3-1 victory over Southampton before the international break and 1-0 loss to Manchester City (football prediction).

Before facing their seventh-placed opponents, coach Thomas Tuchel has a number of injury concerns for deciding the starting lineup.

Meanwhile, Brentford may still be enjoying a boost from a 1-2 away victory over West Ham United (the football news).

Team News

Brentford

  • Brentford, like the Blues, have a few first-team players to check on ahead of their match against Chelsea on Saturday.
  • Kristoffer the Ajer, the center defender, is a doubt, but Vitaly Janelt and Shandon Baptiste, both central midfielders, are out.
  • With midfield worries, Yoane Wissa might make his complete league debut following some good recent performances.

Brentford possible starting lineup: Raya; Pinnock, Jansson, Ajer; Henry, Onyeka, Norgaard, Canos; Wissa, Toney, Mbeumo

Chelsea

  • N’Golo Kante is going to return from his COVID-19 illness for Chelsea, however he may just start on the bench.
  • After joining the Brazil squad during the international break, Thiago Silva is unavailable. Trevoh Chalobah should preserve his spot in the side despite Antonio Rudiger’s doubts.
  • Chelsea, though, are still without Reece James and Christian Pulisic for Saturday’s trip to Brentford.
  • Even ahead of summer acquisition Saul Niguez, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley have surprisingly pushed their way back into contention.
  • Timo Werner had a nice international break with Germany for whom he just scored a brace (football results). He also scored in Chelsea’s last game (football transfer news), and will thus hope to start here.
  • On the other hand, Ben Chilwell has had a difficult few months, but there appears to be some hope here.

Chelsea possible starting lineup: Mendy; Chalobah, Christensen, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Kovacic, Jorginho, Chilwell; Mount, Werner, Lukaku

Match Facts

  • In 11 of their last 12 away games, Chelsea have gone on undefeated (Premier League).
  • Brentford have scored at least two goals in each of their last three games (Premier League).

Premier League Football Prediction – Brentford vs Chelsea

  • Brentford have beaten Arsenal at home and drew with Liverpool. So, they should be confident going into Saturday’s match against Chelsea in West London.
  • Chelsea beat Southampton 3-1 before the interval, but they needed two late goals to win. In reality, they’ve struggled in recent games.
  • Given what we’ve seen from Brentford against Liverpool, this newly promoted side may cause Chelsea problems in this match, too.

Our Prediction: Brentford 1- 2 Chelsea
