Match Preview of Chelsea vs Brentford

Seeking to continue a perfect October with a sixth win on the bounce in all competitions, Chelsea travel to face Brentford in Wednesday's West London derby in the Premier League.

The Bees ran out 2-0 winners versus Brighton & Hove Albion last Friday, while Graham Potter's men won by the same scoreline away to Aston Villa.

Ivan Toney could hardly be doing any more to force his way into Gareth Southgate's World Cup plans, as the Brentford striker came up with both of his side's goals in a 2-0 win over Brighton to kick off the most recent round of Premier League fixtures.

Toney's cheeky flick in the 27th minute preceded a coolly-taken penalty just after the hour mark, and while Brighton certainly had their chances to make the net ripple at the Brentford Community Stadium, David Raya was equal to all of the Seagulls' efforts.

Having snapped a miserable three-game winless streak in which they only claimed one point from a possible nine, Thomas Frank's men are still clinging on to a coveted top-half spot as they lie ninth in the rankings with 13 points, just one behind seventh-placed Brighton having played a game more.

Our Predicted Lineups

Chelsea possible starting lineup:Raya; Ajer, Pinnock, Mee, Henry; Jensen, Janelt, Onyeka; Mbeumo, Toney, Wissa

Brentford possible starting lineup: starting lineup:Kepa; Azpilicueta, Chalobah, Koulibaly; Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Kovacic, Chilwell; Sterling, Mount; Aubameyang

Who will win the match?

We say: Brentford 1-2 Chelsea. A more clinical side would have no doubt made the net ripple against Chelsea at the weekend, and while Potter can tinker with his XI to stop such frailties being exposed, an in-form Toney will need no invitation to pounce.
