The Graham Potter experiment at Stamford Bridge clearly wasn’t working, so Chelsea were perhaps right to relieve the Englishman of his duties. But the reintroduction of Frank Lampard as caretaker manager has made the Blues even worse. Lampard wasn’t appointed for his managerial nous, having been sacked by Everton earlier this year and already struggled at Chelsea despite being backed in the transfer market, but the hope was that his presence would rally something among the squad — much like Roberto di Matteo in 2012.

We’re currently four games into Lampard’s second spell in charge of Chelsea, and the Blues are yet to taste victory; in fact, they’re yet to taste anything other than defeat. After drawing 0-0 with Liverpool in Bruno’s only game as caretaker manager, Lampard took his Chelsea side to relegation-battling Wolves and lost 1-0 before a 2-0 defeat to Real Madrid at the Bernabeu. Lampard’s Stamford Bridge return brought a 2-1 defeat to Brighton, with Real Madrid then leaving London with a 2-0 win last time out.

Hoping to pile on the misery are Brentford, whose main goal this season may now be to finish as the highest-ranked west London club in the Premier League, something to hold over Chelsea and Fulham. The Bees are currently second in the west London rankings, one place and one point behind Fulham having played a game more, falling slightly down due to a poor run of form.

Translating to the actual Premier League table, Brentford are currently 10th, five points clear of 11th-placed Chelsea, but any hopes they had previous had of European football are surely over. Thomas Frank’s side are now without a win in their past six Premier League games since a 2-0 victory over Southampton and suffered late heartbreak at the weekend, conceding an 87th-minute equaliser against Aston Villa.

Chelsea vs Brentford match stats

One of Chelsea’s many problems this season has been their poor goalscoring, with just 30 goals scored in their 31 Premier League games so far. It’s not been a fun watch for fans at Stamford Bridge of late either, with just one goal scored by Chelsea in their past four home games across all competitions. Brentford, meanwhile, have failed to score in each of their last two away games.

Chelsea’s poor goalscoring has come through a variety of reasons, including poor finishing and just a general lack of chance creation. But they’ve also had a fair few offsides. Kai Havertz is the worst offender in this current Chelsea team, being caught offside 27 times in the Premier League this season, more than any other player.
