Brentford vs Chelsea match on K24

On March 2, 2024, Brentford and Chelsea will go head-to-head in a highly anticipated Premier League match at the LNER Community Stadium. 


This fixture will be of particular interest to football fans, as it will feature the West London derby, adding an extra layer of excitement and local rivalry to the game.


Brentford, currently positioned 16th in the standings with 25 points, will be looking to improve their performance against Chelsea, who are currently placed 11th with 35 points. 


While Chelsea has had recent success, winning three of their last six away matches, Brentford has the edge in head-to-head stats, with three wins in their last five Premier League encounters against Chelsea.


On Saturday, Chelsea will travel across London to take on Brentford at the Gtech Community Stadium.

 

While the Bees are battling against relegation and find themselves five points outside the drop zone, Chelsea are ten points ahead, although they have a game in hand.


This preview delves into all the key stats and trends ahead of Saturday’s showdown. Let’s start by looking at the hosts, Brentford, who suffered a 4-2 defeat against West Ham United in their last game. 


The team has lost each of their previous three Premier League encounters, conceding nine goals while scoring only three in reply. Brentford has also lost five of their last six league games, with 12 defeats in their previous 15 outings.

Additionally, Brentford has lost six of their last 10 home matches in the Premier League, conceding over 1.5 goals on seven occasions during that period. This makes it clear that the Bees will have to step up their game if they want to avoid defeat against the Blues.


On the other hand, Chelsea is coming off a 3-2 victory over Championship side Leeds United, which booked their place in the FA Cup quarterfinals. After losing the EFL Cup final to Liverpool on Sunday, Mauricio Pochettino’s men needed to respond in midweek.


The Blues have been inconsistent this season, but they have won four of their last seven Premier League games, scoring nine goals across those victories. 


However, Chelsea has lost five of its previous eight away outings in the league, conceding 14 goals across those defeats.

Head-to-head, Brentford claimed a 2-0 victory over Chelsea in October, meaning they have won three of the last four meetings between the two teams. 


It is also worth noting that Frank’s side has kept a clean sheet in each of their previous three matches against the Blues, scoring four goals in the process.


Brentford vs Chelsea team news and injuries

Both teams will be missing key players due to injuries. Brentford’s injury list features Josh Dasilva, Rico Henry, Aaron Hickey, Kevin Schade, Ethan Pinnock, and Bryan Mbeumo. Chelsea will be missing Reece James, Christopher Nkunku, Wesley Fofana, Romeo Lavia, and Benoit Badiashile.


Saturday’s clash looks set to be a high-scoring affair between two sides in need of points, so we should expect plenty of action at both ends.
