Chelsea dealt blow as defender set to miss out vs Brentford

Chelsea dealt blow as defender set to miss out vs Brentford

Chelsea’s 2021/22

Chelsea have had a fine start to the 2021/22 Premier League campaign.

Granted, they did lose to Manchester City two weekends ago. However, the Blues then bounced back on Saturday by beating Southampton 3-1.

Thomas Tuchel’s men also boast the joint-best defensive record in the Premier League, and have scored the second-most goals.

In turn, with Liverpool having drawn their last two matches, Chelsea were able to overtake the Reds atop the English top-flight, and will stay there for at least the next 12 days as we enter the international break.

Thiago Silva out vs Brentford

Chelsea’s first game back after the break will come in the form of a trip to newly-promoted Brentford on Saturday the 16th of October.

And, ahead of the game, Thomas Tuchel has already confirmed that one player will be missing.

That man is Thiago Silva, who has been called up to the Brazilian national squad for their games this month:

“He will go and then he will play for Brazil, and then he will come back on the matchday versus Brentford. This is the life of international breaks in 2021. Like it or not, what can I do? If they call him, he needs to go.”

Brazil’s final fixture of the international break takes place in the early hours of Friday the 15th of October, so it is easy to see why Silva will not be available to feature against Brentford on the 16th.
