Chelsea vs Brentford

, KO: 12:30 Oct 28, 2023, Stamford Bridge
Brentford

CHELSEA entertain Brentford in a London derby on Saturday lunchtime.

And the Blues will still be kicking themselves about how they let Arsenal off the hook last week.

It looked like Chelsea had confirmed their return to the big stage after three wins in a row domestically and racing into a two-goal lead against high-flying Arsenal.

However, they managed to concede two goals in the last 13 minutes and had to settle for a frustrating point when it looked as though a statement win against Mikel Arteta's side was in the bag.

But there's no doubt that they have improved considerably from that dismal start to the season and they will go into this game with the Bees hoping to kick on.

Brentford will feel good about themselves too though after a return to winning ways last week at home to Burnley. They had lost four out of their last five games in the league and Carabao Cup and hadn't won a game since the second league match of the season where they went to Fulham and won 3-0.

It's been a frustrating campaign so far for Brentford having suffered one-goal defeats to Newcastle United, Arsenal and most gut-wrenchingly of all to Manchester United at Old Trafford where they somehow conceded two injury time goals to Scott McTominay.

How the bookies view it

Chelsea are solid odds-on favourites here at a general 8/13 with the likes of Coral, bet365 and Betfred.

Brentford can be backed at 9/2 with William Hill and the draw is 16/5 with bet365.

Recent head to heads

Brentford boast an impressive three-game unbeaten run against Chelsea who they defeated at Stamford Bridge and drew with at home last season.

Players to watch

Mykhailo Mudryk finally started repaying some of his ludicrous £88.5 million transfer fee last week with a sublime goal against Arsenal. The Ukrainian has scored in two games in a row for club and country and is 21/4 to score anytime with UniBet.

Congolese hitman Yoane Wissa bagged his third goal of the season last week and is 19/5 to score anytime with UniBet.

Anything else catch the eye?

Chelsea look like they can kick on and have turned the corner and they might just have enough to edge out Brentford and grab an overdue win against them.

As stated, the visitors have an annoying tendency to lose to big teams by a goal and a repeat here is 11/4 with bet365.

Three of Chelsea's seven home games in all competitions this season have seen just one goal and this could be a low-scoring affair too, despite last week's four-goal thriller with Arsenal. Back under 2.5 goals at 21/20 with bet365.

Chelsea have curiously only managed to win six corners in their last three league games, while Brentford have won five in each of their last two games and even won 11 in one one game on their own at Nottingham Forest.

Take a chance on BetVictor's 13/5 on Brentford winning the most corners here.
