Graham Potter’s life as Chelsea manager is off the perfect start, winning five and drawing one of his six games in charge at Stamford Bridge, with Kepa keeping a clean sheet in each of their last four matches. The Blues followed up an impressive 2-0 win over AC Milan at the San Siro in midweek with another three points on the road at Villa Park thanks to a brace from Mason Mount and will be looking to complete the hat-trick at the Community Stadium.
Brentford have had a mixed start to the 2022/23 campaign, but moved up into the top half of the table with an impressive win over Brighton on Friday evening, after going three games without a win prior to that. The Bees have failed to score in four of their six home London derbies in the Premier League (W2,D2, L2), winning the only two games in which they found the net (2-0 against both Arsenal and West Ham last season).

Brentford vs Chelsea match stats
Mason Mount has been directly involved in four goals in his last two Premier League appearances for Chelsea (2 goals, 2 assists), one more than he had in his previous 13 combined (1 goal, 2 assists) and also provided an assist against AC Milan at the San Siro in the Champions League. The Englishman has had more shots (18) and created more chances (15) than any of his teammates in the league so far this term, with Graham Potter speaking highly of the midfielder.
“For Mason I think it’s about the team, about his role in the team. He works so hard for the team always, he’s got the quality, he’s got the ability to score and assist. Sometimes players go through little dips if the team isn’t functioning that well and maybe the team wasn’t functioning as well as it maybe can.
‘As a result of that individuals don’t play to the same level, but the effort’s always been there from my perspective and once he can get into the space we want to get him into, he has the quality to execute.”
