Premier League - Brentford vs Chelsea prediction, team news, lineup

On Saturday evening Chelsea will return to action in Premier League when they will face Brentford, who are a surprise package. With a one-point lead over Southampton, the Blues are now in first place following their 3-1 victory over the Saints before the international break. Here is our expert guess on Brentford vs Chelsea football prediction for the Premier League match of the season.

Team news

Brentford

Brentford has a few first-team players to check on ahead of their match against Chelsea on Saturday.

Vitaly Janelt and Shandon Baptiste, the central midfielders, are out and Kristoffer Ajer is also a doubt.

Following some good recent performances Yoane Wissa might make his complete league debut with midfield worries.

Chelsea

N’Golo Kante might start from the bench after he is expected to return from COVID-19 illness for Chelsea.

Thiago Silva is unavailable after joining the Brazil squad during the international break. Despite Antonio Rudiger’s doubts, Trevoh Chalobah should preserve his spot in the side.

Chelsea is 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 will be hoping to start here after a nice international break with Germany and scored in Chelsea’s last game.

Brentford vs Chelsea prediction

Brentford should be confident going into Saturday’s match against Chelsea in west London as they have beaten Arsenal at home and drew with Liverpool.

Chelsea has struggled in recent games but they smashed Southampton 3-1 before the interval, but they needed two late goals to win.

Given what we’ve seen from Brentford against Liverpool, there’s no reason why the newly promoted side can’t cause Chelsea problems in this match.
