BRENTFORD VS CHELSEA: Date, Time and Venue, Predicted Lineups, Head-to-Head and Score Prediction

Brentford host Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend in a game that proves to be a major test for the blues. Tuchel is currently one of the best managers in the world at the moment, while Thomas Frank is an underdog who became the first man to lead the Bees into a top-flight season since 1946/47.

Tuchel and Frank will face off in a match that will see a 1st placed Chelsea square up against 7th placed Brentford. The newly promoted side are just 4 points behind the Blues with 12 points in their last 7 matches, as opposed to Chelsea's 16.

Date, Time and Venue

This fixture is set to be played on Saturday 16th October, 2021 at 17:30 West African Time (WAT). It will be played at the Brentford Community Stadium, Brentford, England.

Predicted Lineups

Chelsea (3-4-2-1)

With Ngolo Kante and Reece James back to full training with the team, they are now available for selection. But with Chaloba's current form, he may start ahead of James as the Right Back. Lukaku is most likely to maintain his place as the teams centre forward.

Brentford (3-5-2)

Predicted starting XI

David Raya, E. Pinnock, P. Jansson, M. Jorgensen, R. Henry, F. Onyeka, C. Northward, S. Baptiste, S. Canos, I. Toney, B. Mbeumo.

Head to Head

The two teams have played a total of 14 games against each other, with Chelsea having an upper hand in most cases. The Blues have recorded 8 wins, 4 wins for Brentford and 2 draws between them. They met last in an FA Cup tie on the 28th of January, 2017 and Chelsea registered a 4-0 victory.

Score Prediction

Brentford have recorded victories over Arsenal, West Ham and Wolves, as well as a draw against unbeaten Liverpool this season. This places them as a team not to be looked down upon, with the ability to shock any big team that comes their way. Their fixture with Chelsea will really be a tightly contested one.
