Brentford vs. Chelsea lineups, team news
Striker Ivan Toney got back on the scoresheet with his brace against Brighton last time out. He will look to continue to impress in the hope of persuading England manager Gareth Southgate to take a chance.
Defender Christian Norgaard has been out since late August with an Achilles issue, while Pontus Jansson has been absent for the last two matches with a hamstring injury. Backup goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha has been missing the past few weeks with an ankle injury, meaning 19-year-old Matthew Cox is Brentford’s bench option between the sticks.
Manager Thomas Frank has rotated Vitaly Janet, Josh Dasilva, and Frank Onyeka in midfield, with the latter, rested over the weekend against Brighton, with the possibility of being brought in for Wednesday’s match.
Brentford projected starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Raya (GK) — Henry, Mee, Pinnock, Aier — Dasilva, Janelt, Jensen — Wissa, Toney, Mbeumo.
Injuries to key players are weighing on Chelsea. Reece James and N’Golo Kante are both struggling with injuries and are likely to miss the World Cup, meaning they won’t return until 2023. Wesley Fofana is also missing with a knee injury, sapping the back line further.
Kalidou Koulibaly came off the bench for the second half against Aston Villa on Sunday, replacing Marc Cucurella, and he could start against Brentford.
As a goalkeeper, new manager Graham Potter has established Kepa Arrizabalaga as his No. 1 goalkeeper over Edouard Mendy, and the Spaniard had a fantastic game against Aston Villa over the weekend. Chelsea might need similar heroics at the Brentford Community Stadium.
Chelsea projected starting lineup (3-4-3): Arrizabalaga (GK) — Chalobah, Silva, Koulibaly — Chilwell, Loftus-Cheek, Kovacic, Sterling — Havertz, Aubameyang, Mount.
Brentford vs. Chelsea betting odds, pick & prediction
Odds via Caesars (USA), Sports Interaction (Canada), & SkyBet (UK).
Chelsea is the heavy favorite after topping Aston Villa on the road over the weekend, despite being challenged in the run of play throughout the 90 minutes.
Aston Villa was able to find spaces behind the Chelsea wing-backs, which Brentford’s Thomas Frank will surely have noticed. The pacy Bryan Mbeumo will be key to attacking the Chelsea backline and helping Brentford find the back of the net.
Unfortunately for the hosts, their defense has let them down on numerous occasions this season and could cost them again Wednesday. They’ve conceded at least 1.0 expected goals in all but three games this season, with another at 0.96. There should be chances on both ends of the field.
Pick: Both teams to score (-120 at Caesars)
Prediction: Brentford 1-3 Chelsea
