Wednesday’s West London derby in the Premier League will pit Chelsea against Brentford as they look to extend their unbeaten streak in all competitions.
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.
Inconsistent thus far this season, Brentford presently holds a ninth place in the Premier League standings but the home team will be optimistic going into this match after claiming three point last time out.
Brentford will be looking to win back-to-back league games against Chelsea for the first time since February 1939, following their 4-1 win at Stamford Bridge in April.
Thomas Frank’s side have failed to score in 4 of their six home London derbies in the Premier League.
Brentford have not won any of their 6 midweek matches in the Premier League so far and have picked up only one point from these games.
Chelsea have a good record against Brentford and have won 10 out of the 17 matches played between the two teams, as opposed to five victories for the home side.
The Blues have won only 64 of their 137 Premier League games played on Wednesdays.
Chelsea have won nine of their last 10 away London derbies in the Premier League, keeping 7 clean sheets in the process.
Potters’ side have won their last 5 games in all competitions, winning each of the last four without conceding.
Chelsea to win and the game to score over 2.5 goals or the Blues to score first – Yes
