It doesn't get any easier for Chelsea as their next Premier League fixture has been deemed by many to be potential 'banana peel' in their title race. Brentford have been punching above their weight since they gained promotion to the English top-flight and will provide a tough test for the European champions later today.
One player who Thomas Tuchel and his boys will need to be weary of is DRC Congo international Yoane Wissa. The 25 year old forward has become a secret weapon for Thomas Frank to unlock stubborn defences late in the match.
Wissa is yet to feature from the start in a Premier League game but knows how to make an impact off the bench. His speed and clever movement, coupled with predatory finishing causes havoc for opposition defenders who are already worn out doing battle with Ivan Toney and Mbuemo by the time he is introduced in the game.
Wissa seems to have accepted his 'super sub' role in his team and has been doing a good job of it so far. The former Lorient striker has scored 4 goals across his last three appearances for Brentford, including the equalizer in the six goal thriller with Liverpool and also a dramatic late winner in the London derby against West Ham last time out.
Brentford are expected to line up with Ivan Toney and Bryan Mbuemo up front in their much preferred 3-5-2 formation. Those two alone will be too much to handle for Chelsea's injury-hit defence line that will be without Antonio Rudiger and Thiago Silva.
Yoane Wissa is a man in form and will be looking to make another major impact when he comes off the bench in the game against Chelsea later in the day.
