Brentford vs Chelsea Stats

  • Chelsea are undefeated in 11 of their last 12 away league matches.
  • Brentford have seen under 2.5 goals in 5 of their 7 league games.

Betting Tip: Under 2.5 Goals

The live evening game is between to London sides in new boys Brentford and title fancies Chelsea. Thomas Frank has overseen a smooth transition into the top flight with the Bees and should be delighted with their 12 point haul so far. They’ve been difficult to beat and if Chelsea are to get a result here they’ll have to work hard for it.

Thomas Tuchel has made his Chelsea side well set up from a defensive standpoint since coming in, clean sheets and low scoring games have been commonplace. They’ll be patient and probing as they try to open up a solid defence but they won’t give much change to the likes of Ivan Toney and Bryan Mbuemo you’d imagine.

We could well have a tight and trappy affair with chances at a minimum. Therefore under 2.5 goals makes a fair bit of appeal at 20/23. It’s landed in 2/3 Brentford home games and 2/3 Chelsea away games.
