Premier League

Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for Brentford v Chelsea

Mark Lawrenson is tipping Chelsea FC to win 2-0 against Brentford in Premier League's late kick-off on Saturday. The Blues will be hoping to extend their advantage at the top of the Premier League table after Thomas Tuchel's team took a narrow lead over Southampton before the international break with a 3-1 victory.

Chelsea FC moved one point ahead of Liverpool FC in the Premier League rankings thanks to goals from Trevoh Chalobah, Timo Werner, and Ben Chilwell. Chelsea FC has won five of its seven Premier League games this season, drawing 1-1 with Liverpool FC and losing 1-0 to Manchester City.

Brentford have made a big impression in their Premier League debut season. With a total of 12 points, they are currently in seventh place in the standings. The Bees won 3-0 against Arsenal in their Premier League opener at home before being held to a dramatic 3-3 draw at the Brentford Community Stadium by Liverpool FC. Chelsea FC, according to BBC Sport commentator Lawrenson, will be able to handle a high-octane atmosphere at Brentford's ground and come away with three points in Saturday's late kick-off.

Brentford's ground will be rocking again for this one, but I really want Chelsea to silence them on Saturday," Lawrenson told BBC Sport. This is the first time these two west London clubs have played in the league since 1947, so Brentford's ground will be rocking again for this one. "The Blues had a bit of a blip at the end of last month, but they bounced back, and I expect them to put in another professional effort this time."

Chelsea FC have won both of their FA Cup games against Brentford 4-0, but the Bees did manage to hold the Champions League winners to a 2-2 draw in the fourth round of the FA Cup in 2013 to force a rematch.
