The match is truly a West London Derby affair, as both Brentford and Chelsea are separated by less than 10 miles geographically - with both sides facing each other in a competitive league match for the first time in 74 years. They last took on each other in a domestic campaign in 1947, until the 2013 FA Cup fourth round which ended in a 2-2 draw at Griffin Park (Brentford's old stadium), with Chelsea winning the replay 4-0. They both played each other in the 2017 FA Cup fourth round, with the Blues running away 4-0 winners.
