Chelsea is set to take on Brentford at their home ground, Stamford Bridge, in Round 10 of the Premier League.
As it stands, Chelsea is in the 10th position in the league. They're determined to get back on the winning track in the Premier League, especially after settling for a 2-2 draw with Arsenal in their previous game. The Blues have notably improved their offensive game, and their recent performance in the North London derby has left fans feeling hopeful as they approach the showdown with Brentford.
On the other hand, Brentford currently sits at the 14th spot in the league standings, having managed to secure victory in only two out of their nine games so far. However, they recently ended their winless streak with an impressive 3-0 win against a 10-man Burnley. The top bookmakers in India have fantastic Premier League odds with them.
Chelsea have consistently been recording an impressive 5 shots on target per match, increasing the likelihood of them scoring.
The betting tip is...
Chelsea to score first
Reece James, who is now back in shape, is eager for a starting position. Unfortunately, Chilwell, Fofana, and Chalobah are sidelined due to injuries. Under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino, Chelsea has encountered a challenging start to the season, securing victories in just three out of nine matches.
When it comes to the offensive side of things, Nicolas Jackson has been a standout player for Chelsea. He's made a significant impact with an impressive 20% shots-on-target rate. There's no doubt that he's the player to keep a close eye on in the upcoming match.
Broja is expected to start for Chelsea.
Predicted Lineup: Sanchez, Disasi, Silva, Colwill, Marc Cucurella, Caicedo, Gallagher, Palmer, Fernández, Broja, Sterling
Brentford is closely trailing Chelsea by a mere two points in the league standings, currently holding the 14th position. Thomas Frank has been leading the team, and they have steadily improved.
Notably, B. Mbeumo and Maupay have been exceptional, with impressive on-target shot rates of 18.9% and 16.2%, respectively, establishing themselves as pivotal players for the team.
Regrettably, injuries will keep Keane Lewis-Potter, Kevin Schade, Rico Henry, Mikkel Damsgaard, Shandon Baptiste, and Joshua Da Silva from participating in the upcoming match.
Mads Roerslev is expected to start against Chelsea.
Predicted Lineup: Flekken, Mads Roerslev, Collins, Pinnock, Janelt, Jensen, Norgaard, Onyeka, Maupay, Wissa, Mbeumo
Brentford is getting ready for a big clash against the formidable Chelsea. Their performance this season has been a bit disappointing, with an average possession rate of just 50.4%.
On the other hand, Chelsea can be a dominant force when they're at their best. Sterling, who has an impressive 15% accuracy in shots on target, and Sanchez, with 24 saves at the same accuracy rate, present a formidable challenge for Brentford. Chelsea will gain confidence from their 2-2 draw against a strong Arsenal team, and will want to carry the momentum
However, it's impossible to ignore the fact that Chelsea has a superior squad filled with exceptional talent and tactical expertise. This firmly establishes them as the favorites to emerge victorious in what promises to be an exciting showdown.
