Chelsea will face Brentford in an away Premier League game on Saturday, October 16, following the International break.
Ahead of the game, Paul Merson has made his prediction on SportsKeeda.
“I’m going to be at this game! I keep betting against Brentford and they keep surprising me, so this has to be the time I get a prediction right? They keep on proving me wrong, but sooner or later surely I’ll be right. But all jokes aside, they’ve been absolutely brilliant this season and deservedly have a lot of points on the board at this stage of the Premier League campaign.
“I think Timo Werner will start alongside Romelu Lukaku for this one. Brentford play three at the back, so there will be a lot of space down the channels for runners to exploit. Werner has the pace to do exactly that and is coming on the back of a good outing for Germany, so he could get the nod for this one.”
Prediction: Chelsea 3-1 Brentford
