Chelsea will welcome Brentford at Stamford Bridge on Saturday as they looked to earn maximum points from this home clash. The Blues managed to earn a 2-0 win over Middlesbrough in the FA Cup before the international break which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this league encounter in the English capital.

Thomas Tuchel will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could make a few changes to his starting XI for this game. Both Timo Werner and Kai Havertz are expected to play from the start while Romelu Lukaku and Christian Pulisic drop to the bench.

4-3-3 Chelsea Predicted Lineup To Face Brentford


Edouard Mendy will feature in goal for the West London club after he kept a clean sheet in his last domestic outing. Andreas Christensen is a major doubt for this game but could get the nod to start alongside Antonio Rudiger at the centre of Chelsea’s backline.

Cesar Azpilicueta will probably operate at right-back while Malang Sarr hopes to catch the eye on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will be given the license to get forward and express themselves in the Brentford half.

Thiago Silva will get a rest on the bench as Tuchel looks to keep him fresh for the upcoming UEFA Champions League showdown versus Real Madrid next week.

Mason Mount, Jorginho and N’Golo Kante will make up Tuchel’s midfield as they hope to dominate the ball at the centre of the park and engineer some meaningful openings for his teammates in the final third.

Mateo Kovacic will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second 45 minutes if required.


Timo Werner will function as the left-sided wide player while Hakim Ziyech hopes to catch the eye on the right flank. Kai Havertz will lead the line for the Blues down the middle.

Romelu Lukaku will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the latter stages if Chelsea are in need of a goal by then.
