Premier League

Rudiger and Silva out: Chelsea's potential lineup to face Brentford today.

Chelsea returns to Premier League action today as they travel to Brentford this afternoon for their first game after the International break. The Stamford Bridge club will go into the game with huge confidence after winning their last game before the International to become the league leaders.

Lukaku and Werner would look to hurt the Brentford defence today.

But, they are likely to face a big test against the Bees who have been very impressive this season despite just gaining promotion to the Premier League this season. And after winning the likes of Arsenal, Wolves and West Ham United and also drawing 3 - 3 against Liverpool in their opening 7 league fixtures so far this season, they would look to continue their good run of form by trying to get a good result against Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea team today.

However, Chelsea would also look to win the game to strengthen their place on top of the table. But to beat the "high-flying" Brentford side, Chelsea will need to give everything on the pitch to emerge a winner at the end of the game.

But unfortunately for Tuchel, he will miss some of his key players today through injuries and illness, as he revealed in his pre-match press conference that Antonio Rudiger and Christian Pulisic will miss the game through injury, while Hakim Ziyech will miss through illness. Thiago Silva will be rested after coming back from international duty.

And as Tuchel is set to miss all the above-mentioned players today, we have predicted the best way he could lineup his team to still beat Brentford today with his available players.
