At the top of the Premier League table Chelsea have been in a terrific form so far this season. They will be turning their attention to the FA Cup on Saturday as they host Brentford at the Stamford Bridge.
The hosts have been at the top of their game in recent weeks in the Premier League. Chelsea have dominated the English top flight in the first half of the season. Team have lost only one game in their last five league competitions. They have collected 12 points from a possible 15 in that same period. Their last match was against Hull City at home where they won 2-0.
Chelsea are at the top of the Premier League with 55 points from 18 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses. They have scored 47 goals and conceded 15 since the start of the season.
Antonio Conte has a full squad to pick from but may turn to some of his fringe and youth players for the reception of Brentford on Saturday. Branislav Ivanovic is reportedly in talks with Zenit St. Petersburg and may not feature here as a result.
The visitors on the other hand are not as solid as the hosts in their league. Brentford have been inconsistent since the start of the season in the Championship. The team have won only one game in their last five competitions. They have collected a total of 5 points from a possible 15 in that same period. Their last game was against Wigan Athletic away from home where they lost 2-1.
Brentford are sitting in the 15th place in the league table with 33 points from 9 wins, 6 draws and 12 losses. They have scored 34 goals and conceded 35 since the start of the season.
Scott Hogan hasn’t featured for Brentford since the start of January and continues to be linked with a move to West Ham. He may not feature here either until his future is resolved. Brentford manager Dean Smith has already used a back three this season and may turn to this formation to mirror Chelsea on Saturday.
