Chelsea will be looking to climb up the EPL table in this west London derby against Brentford — and you can watch the Brentford vs Chelsea live stream from anywhere with a VPN.

Brentford XI: Flekken, Jorgensen, Ajer, Collins, Roerslev, Onyeka, Norgaard, Janelt, Reguilon, Toney, Wissa.

Chelsea XI: Petrovic, Chalobah, Disasii, Colwill, Gusto, Fernandez, Caicedo, Gallagher, Chilwell, Palmer, Jackson.

Mauricio Pochettino brought himself some breathing space by overseeing a 3-2 F.A. Cup victory over Leeds in midweek. Chelsea are now through to the quarter-finals, but their position in the bottom half of the EPL table shows there is plenty of work still to do.

Chelsea are only four points off seventh, which is likely to be a European qualification berth. But consistency continues to elude them and it is difficult to predict which version of Pochettino's team will show up at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Brentford have had plenty of joy from this fixture in recent times, winning three of their last four meetings with their west London neighbors. Thomas Frank could do with another victory here: following a 4-2 loss to West Ham on Monday, Brentford are just five points clear of the relegation zone.

A front two of Ivan Toney and Yoane Wissa will look to prey on Chelsea's defensive deficiencies on Saturday. The Blues will have to stand up to the physical challenge posed by their opponents, as they seek to climb back into the top 10.

Can you watch a Brentford vs Chelsea live stream in the U.K.?

Unfortunately, there will be no Brentford vs Chelsea live stream in the U.K. That's because the match takes place during the long-standing Saturday afternoon 3p.m. blackout, when no games are shown on live TV in order to protect attendances at stadiums around England.

U.S. fans visiting the U.K. can use one of the best VPN services to access their usual streaming service from abroad. We recommend ExpressVPN.

As it stands, live Premier League rights are split three ways in the U.K. between Sky Sports, TNT Sports and Amazon Prime Video.

For the 23/24 season, Sky Sports is set to show 128 matches live, while TNT Sports will show 52 matches live, including every Saturday lunchtime kick-off. Amazon Prime Video will broadcast 20 matches.
