Team News

  • Thomas Frank may make two changes to the XI that lost at West Ham on Monday with Nathan Collins and Mads Roerslev coming in for Ben Mee and Keane Lewis-Potter.
  • The Bees boss is without no fewer than six confirmed absentees, with injury to Ethan Pinnock the significant blow.
  • Christopher Nkunku has suffered another injury and is one of eight confirmed absentees for the Blues.
  • Marc Cucurella and Thiago Silva are back in full team training ahead of Saturday's trip across the capital.
  • Mauricio Pochettino may go with the XI that started the 1-1 draw at Manchester City in their last league outing.


  • Brentford fell to their fifth defeat in their last six last time out and the Bees are looking nervously over their shoulder. Thomas Frank's side have lost four of their last five at home, which doesn't bode well ahead of the welcome of Chelsea.
  • The Blues make the short trip to the Gtech Community Stadium having booked their spot in the next round of the FA Cup in a late 3-2 win over Leeds on Wednesday night. Chelsea are unbeaten in their three visits to Brentford since their promotion to the Premier League, winning twice.
  • After such a disappointing display at the London Stadium, Frank will demand an immediate response though Brentford may have to settle for a share of the spoils.
