Betting prediction: Brentford 0-1 Chelsea

A clash between two of the Premier League’s top defensive outfits takes shape at the Brentford Community Stadium this weekend, but Chelsea are still heavy favorites on merit. Brentford will be tricky to break down, and have the capacity to make life difficult for the Blues, but Thomas Tuchel’s men should still have enough to take all three points from Thomas Frank’s Bees in a close affair. Chelsea to get a narrow win.

Brentford vs Chelsea: Recommended bets

To Score First: Romelu Lukaku (3/1 odds)

Against a stubborn backline that are as well drilled as Thomas Frank’s Brentford, there is no better time for Romelu Lukaku to get back to the goalscoring form that he started the season in.  Despite a mini-drought, Lukaku is still the club’s leading scorer in the league, and their biggest goal threat from multiple scenarios.

Result/Both Teams to Score: Chelsea – No (6/4 odds)

Not the best return overall, but a high probability means that something can be taken away. Chelsea and Brentford have both shown themselves to be defensively astute this season, and the added notion that the latter struggle to score goals in a higher volume screams narrow Chelsea win with a clean sheet.

Brentford vs Chelsea: Match preview

Brentford are flying high in their return to the top flight of English football under Thomas Frank this season, with the Bees currently sitting 7th in the table, just two points outside of the top-six.

Though goals have been somewhat at a premium for Frank’s outfit, Brentford boast one of the finest defensive records in the league, having surrendered just 6-goals. With the capital outfit having tasted defeat just once this season and earning quite a handful of credible results, they cannot be underestimated when it comes to the possibility of snagging something against Chelsea.

And speaking of the Blues, Thomas Tuchel’s table-topping outfit have hit their stride early, and have expectedly pushed on from their Champions League success last season by setting the pace in the Premier League in the early doors of 2021-22.

The Blues look a complete side under the German, well balanced in all phases of play and in all sectors of the pitch, but came up short in their two main tests of the season thus far, when they lost to Manchester City, and only managed a draw against Liverpool. Brentford are no slouches, and another slip up is not out of the realm of possibility on Saturday, though Romelu Lukaku featuring in the matchday XI will certainly bolster Chelsea’s chances.


 

Brentford team news vs Chelsea

Thomas Frank will welcome Chelsea to the Brentford Community Stadium without four first-team assets. Vitaly Janelt, Mads Bech Sørensen, Josh Dasilva, and Shandon Baptiste are all unavailable for selection through injury.

Summer signing Kristoffer Ajer is also listed as a doubt, but could yet make the matchday XI.

Chelsea team news vs Brentford

Thomas Tuchel will for sure be without the services of key center-back pairing Antonio Rüdiger (fitness) and Thiago Silva (late return from international duty), so breakout youngster Trevoh Chalobah will be expected to deputize.

Christian Pulisic is out injured and N’Golo Kante is stepping up his recovery from Covid-19, while Romelu Lukaku returned to full training this week after an injury scare, and should be ready to lead the line against the Bees.
