The starting eleven on the day included a certain Marko Marin and had Ross Turnbull in goal, with first team palyers such as John Terry, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, frank Lampard, all on show.

Chelsea had the expensive but goal shy Fernando Torres up front supported by skillful Brazilian Oscar.

It was the home side that took the lead jn the first half, Chelsea replied through Oscar but Brentford scored again from the penalty spot.
