The blues are set to visit newly promoted Brentford on Saturday evening in the Premier League match week 8. Having had an impressive start to the new campaign, Chelsea will be seeking to cement their place at the top of the Premier League table when they visit Thomas Frank's men today.
While the blues have impressed many onlookers this season, we can say Brentford have had a better season up to date than them, having secured a huge 12points from a possible 21 on their return to the top flight for the first time in decades. In fact, Brentford picked up the same points (4), as Chelsea in games against Arsenal and Liverpool, which means today's encounter will not come easily for the blues. In this article, we will look at one Brentford striker who is a lifelong Liverpool fans that Chelsea must be wary of as they look to secure all three points.
With Thiago Silva and Rudiger out for Chelsea, the blues could have a tough time playing against Thomas Frank's men today. The Bees are blessed with two good strikers in Ivan Toney and Mbueno, who can wreak havoc and upset any team. They did it against Arsenal and Liverpool, and they will fancy their chances against the European champions too, and the fact that the blues will be missing two of their top defenders means Brentford could have a chance.
One Brentford striker who is a Liverpool fan and might be looking at the possibility of helping his dream club leapfrog the blues to the summit of the Premier League table by inflicting a defeat on Chelsea is Ivan Toney. The English man scored over 30goals in the Championship last season to help the Bees gained promotion to the top flight. Since his return to the top flight, he has really impressed two, scoring two goals in Six games and helping his side with his all round play.
He was a nightmare for the likes of Virgil Van Dijk and Joel Matip and could cause the blues back line, short of their most experienced defenders, some problems. If Chelsea wants to secure all three points today, they must find a way to limit his contributions.
