In Saturday’s late kick-off, Brentford host top of the table Chelsea at the Brentford Community Stadium, with Thomas Frank’s side currently sitting seventh-place in the Premier League.
The Bees have started life in England’s top-flight in impressive fashion, picking up 12 points from their opening seven matches, including victories against Arsenal and Wolves by 2-0 scorelines and showing that they can match up with the best in the division, when they drew 3-3 with Liverpool thanks to a late Yoane Wissa goal. Last time out, Brentford beat West Ham United 2-1 at the London Stadium with Wissa scoring a 94th-minute winner, having initially taken the lead through Bryan Mbuemo.
Chelsea have won three of their last four matches in the Premier League and sit one point ahead of Liverpool at the top of the table following their 3-1 home win against Southampton at Stamford Bridge last time out thanks to late goals from Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell. Prior to their victory over the Saints, Thomas Tuchel’s side had been narrowly beaten 1-0 at home to Manchester City in the Premier League, having beaten both Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa 3-0 in back-to-back matches.
Prediction: Brentford 1 - 3 Chelsea 12/1
