Brentford v Chelsea preview | premier league – .


Chelsea’s last two encounters with Brentford have yielded 4-0 FA Cup wins. Thomas Tuchel would be delighted with a similar result on Saturday, and probably quite surprised too. Brentford was exceptional on his return to the top flight and showed two sides of his game by winning at West Ham. Injuries are starting to kick in, however, and the loss of Shandon Baptiste is a big blow. The visitors are encouraged by the news that Romelu Lukaku will be in good shape and hope to succeed where Arsenal and Liverpool have failed, toppling the Bees at home. Nick Ames
