The match is likely to test the resolve of the Chelsea squad, as the newly promoted Bees have enjoyed a positive start to the new season - sitting in seventh place after seven matches. Head coach Thomas Frank has been working wonders in West London.

DEFENCE (TREVOH CHALOBAH, ANDREAS CHRISTENSEN, ANTONIO RUDIGER): The trio look likely to do their thing in the heart of defence. Trevoh Chalobah scored on his Premier League debut against Crystal Palace and headed in another against Southampton before the international break. He has scored twice in four league games and has won 21 duels.

MIDFIELDERS (CESAR AZPILICUETA, N'GOLO KANTE, JORGINHO, BEN CHILWELL): Cesar Azpilicueta has been great this campaign. He has won 43 one-on-one duels and won 14 aerial duels. He has also averaged 55 passes per match. 

N'Golo Kante has missed the last couple of matches due to injury, but will be a welcomed return to Tuchel’s side. The Frenchman has scored one goal in four appearances thus far.

Jorginho's performances have seen him nominated for the 2021 Ballon d’Or. He has featured in all seven league matches for Chelsea.

Ben Chilwell marked his first start of the season against Southampton with a goal, which led him earning a call up to the England squad for their FIFA World Cup qualifier against Andorra. He scored in the 5-0 win over Andorra.

FORWARDS (MASON MOUNT, ROMELU LUKAKU, TIMO WERNER): Mason Mount's overall game and link-up play will prove to be key for the Blues in this fixture against the Bees. 

Romelu Lukaku had gotten off to a bright start in his second stint at West London but the Belgian hitman has fired blanks in his last three Premier League games. However, Chelsea did get two wins from its last three league games. The upcoming matches for the Blues will no doubt be of any concern for the Belgian and will be looking to add to his goal tally.

Timo Werner is back in form for club and country. The German international has scored four goals, has registered one assist and created six chances in his last six appearances for Chelsea and Germany.
