Chelsea vs Brentford Preview - 28/10/2023 - Premier League
The Blues, who have experienced a string of setbacks since Thomas Tuchel's departure, appear to be on the path to recovery. The recent accomplishments of Palmer, who successfully converted a penalty, and Mudryk, who scored against Arsenal last week, serve as compelling evidence of Chelsea's reinvigorated confidence and improved performance under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino.
On the flip side, Brentford are approaching this fixture with a strong desire to secure a victory in the fiercely competitive English top league. Their recent run has been a mixed bag, marked by defeats to Arsenal and Manchester United, a draw with Nottingham Forest, and a notable 3-0 triumph against Everton in their most recent outing. This sees Brentford gearing up to face a resurgent Chelsea, with both teams aiming to make their mark in the Premier League.
Match Officials Confirmed for Chelsea vs Brentford
Chelsea vs Brentford Prediction - 28/10/2023 - Premier League
Chelsea have been fortunate in recent times with the return of injured players, but there are still several players on the sidelines, including vice-captain Ben Chilwell and summer signings Christopher Nkunku and Romeo Lavia, who have yet to make their debuts.
Aaron Hickey is back in action after serving a suspension against Burnley, but Brentford continues to grapple with numerous player absences, including Rico Henry.
Irrespective of their recent form, Brentford feel confident about their chances as they make the short journey across west London to Stamford Bridge. They are currently on a three-match unbeaten streak against Chelsea, securing two victories at Stamford Bridge, notably a 4-1 victory against Thomas Tuchel's side in the 2021/22 season and a 2-0 win against Frank Lampard's team last season.
Chelsea may have endured a goal drought in their previous three matches against Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth, and Aston Villa, but they regained their scoring touch before and after the international break. They scored twice against Fulham, netted four goals against Burnley, and managed to score twice against Arsenal. However, Chelsea is grappling with some disciplinary issues, having accumulated 29 yellow cards this season, with only Wolves receiving more (31). In the corner statistics, Brentford holds a slight advantage, with 46 corners to Chelsea's 44.
