Brentford bounced back from a thrashing at the hands of Newcastle with an impressive 2-0 defeat of high-flying Brighton last week. A brace from Ivan Toney sunk the Seagulls, and took the striker up to eight goals for the season, an impressive return for a player still hoping to make England’s World Cup 2022 squad. Brentford are certainly enjoying their sophomore Premier League season. There's no slump in sight as the Bees currently sit in the top 10 equal on points with Liverpool.  

Chelsea’s owners made the shock decision to sack Thomas Tuchel last month and paid a significant fee to poach Graham Potter from Brighton, but the risky move appears to be paying off. The London-based side are now unbeaten in six matches under Potter and are on an EPL winning streak of four-game (granted, the first game in the run was won under Tuchel). They’ll make the short journey up to Brentford full of confidence and looking to further build on their most recent win over Aston Villa which saw homegrown talent Mason Mount score two goals. 

Brentford have yet to win successive league games this season and their recent form has been a little patchy, last weekend’s win over Brighton was their first three points in four games. However, the last time these sides met it finished as a shock 1-4 win for Brentford, can the Bees sting the Blues once again? You’ll need to watch a Brentford vs Chelsea live stream to find out.  

The lineups are:

Brentford (Formation 5-3-2): 1 Raya, 13, M Jorgensen, 16 Mee, 5 Pinnock, 30 Roerslev, 3 Henry, 15 Onyeka, 27 Janelt, 8 Jensen, 19 Mbeumo, 17 Toney

Chelsea (Formation 3-4-3): 1 Arrizabalaga, 28 Azpilicueta, 14 Chalobah, 26 Koulibaly, 12 Loftus-Cheek, 19 Mount, 5 Jorginho, 32 Cucurella, 23 Gallagher, 18 Broja, 29 Havertz
