A 2-0 win at home against Arsenal on the opening day of the season was immediately followed by a goalless draw at Crystal Palace. A 2-1 victory at West Ham brought in the international break in style and Thomas Frank will hope that previous form in cross-city matches so far might bring about a bit of fortune against the European champions.
With Liverpool playing Watford earlier in the day, Chelsea may be fighting to regain top spot in the league with a win against an opponent they have not met in the league since 1947.
Brentford are collecting the scalps of much larger and better resourced clubs and Thomas Tuchel will be desperate to ensure his Blues are not added to the trophy cabinet.
