Brentford vs Chelsea

Brentford will be aiming to make amends for a 4-2 loss to West Ham United when they take on Chelsea in yet another London derby. The Bees are on a three-game losing run in the Premier League and, as a result, their elite division status is in danger. DR Congo international Yoane Wissa is widely expected to return to the starting XI, while all Ethan Pinnock, Kevin Schade, Joshua Da Silva, and Aaron Hickey are sidelined with injuries.

The Blues, on the other hand, did well to hold Man City to a 1-1 draw at Etihad Stadium in their last league match and we predict that they will take advantage of the current situation in Brentford’s dressing room. All Carney Chukwuemeka, Thiago Silva, Romeo Lavia, Benoit Badiashile, Lesley Ugochukwu, and Marc Cucurella are out of contention through injuries, speaking of the visiting team.

How the bookies view it

Chelsea are favourites here at 6/5 with sport. The hosts can be backed at 21/10 with Wjcasino and the draw is 14/5 with Wjcasino.

Recent head to heads

Brentford pulled off what used to be regarded as a shock but not so much these days with a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge in October.

In fact, they are unbeaten in four games against Chelsea and haven’t conceded in their last three games against them. But they haven’t actually beaten them at home since 1938 at their old Griffin Park ground.

Players to watch

Ivan Toney has scored four goals in seven games since his return to action following his lengthy ban. He is 8/5 to score anytime.

Mykhaylo Mudryk has become something of a poster boy for Chelsea squandering money since they paid £88.5 million for him. But he scored against Leeds and is 24/5 to net again with UniBet.

Recent Meetings

  • As surprising as it seems, Brentford have dominated this matchup in recent years. The Bees won three and drew one of the previous four clashes with Chelsea.
  • The run involves this season’s 2-0 victory for the Bees in October last year at Stamford Bridge.
  • Only one of the previous eight head-to-head encounters between these rivals provided goals at both ends.

Brentford vs Chelsea Prediction

Both Brentford and Chelsea have been playing attacking-minded football. We have enough reasons to expect the low-scoring trend from their head-to-head games to come to an end this Saturday. Brentford conceded four goals in two of the last three league games.

Both teams were on target in ten of their previous twelve affairs across competitions. The same scenario happened in five of Chelsea’s past six outings in all competitions. You can back the Both Teams To Score pick at the 1.50 odds.

We will alternatively take the home win or draw double chance bet at the 1.66 odds. Brentford are in a very tough position in the relegation scrap and they can ill afford slip-ups in front of their fans.

Chelsea have had a tough week with the clashes against Liverpool and Leeds United within the previous six days. Fatigue may play a big role as well. Last but not least, the Bees won three and drew one of the previous four clashes against Chelsea.
