Can Graham Potter’s flawless start to life at Stamford Bridge continue? If the good times are to keep rolling then the Englishman will need to get a result against a team that have given Chelsea trouble in recent times.
Brentford vs Chelsea Predictions
Chelsea Current Run of Form

Brentford Current Run of Form
The Bees have had a very mixed run recently. In their last five games, they have two wins, two defeats, and a draw. Those two defeats were, however, very heavy defeats with a 5-1 defeat to Newcastle United and a 3-0 loss to Arsenal still fresh in the minds of fans.

Coming off a 2-0 win over Potter’s former side Brighton & Hove Albion the mid-table team will be hoping to take down their high-flying opposition and solidify their spot in the top half of the table.
Recent Head to Head
The most recent league match between the two London-based sides was a 4-1 win for Brentford. While The Blues got the better of their opposition in the League Cup they will still be reeling from the huge defeat last time out.
If the home side can get the win today it will be their first time getting back-to-back league wins over their London rivals since 1939.
Brentford vs Chelsea Prediction
While The Bees have made life difficult for the two-time Champions League winners in the past they won’t head into this one as favourites. Not only has Graham Potter got his side looking unstoppable but recent form indicates Brentford will struggle to stop their opponents from scoring.
That defensive frailty could cost them based on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s recent form and Chelsea’s recent penchant for scoring goals.
