There must be something in the west London water as both Brentford and Chelsea are flying at the moment. Thomas Frank’s newly-promoted Bees have already claimed the scalps of Arsenal, West Ham and Wolves, while the European champions are currently setting the pace atop the Premier League table.

Frank cultivated a reputation as a bit of a tactical firebrand in the Championship, and he has seamlessly acclimatised to the demands of top-flight football, with his  shrewd recruitment policy and well-drilled wing-back system firing the club to seventh in the table, just four points off Saturday’s visitors.

In the opposite dugout, Thomas Tuchel has continued to go from strength to strength at the Bridge and has his Chelsea side perched at the summit. The German enters this contest in formidable form on the road, losing just one of his 12 Premier League away games since succeeding Frank Lampard last term.

With an international break to recuperate and Champions League obligations not until Wednesday against relatively favourable opponents in Malmo, the Blues will be champing at the bit to seal a seventh successive London derby victory which, if they succeed, would set a new record for consecutive wins in the capital.

Brentford vs Chelsea: Match Stats

Chelsea are not only unbeaten in their last six meetings against Brentford, which stretches back to 1939, so hardly a solid measure to judge this contest, but they are also on a winning run of six games in London derbies. A seventh triumph here would set a new London record for successive triumphs.

And although Chelsea have had more different goalscorers than any other Premier League side so far this season (12, excluding own goals), one player who will be looking to get on the scoresheet is Romelu Lukaku, who is currently on a five-game scoring drought in all competitions. Don’t expect that to last.

This is the first league meeting between the sides since a 2-0 win for Chelsea in March 1947, but they have met thrice in the FA Cup over the past eight years, with the Blues winning successive 4-0 wins at the Bridge — with Antonio Conte’s men winning the most recent derby. Goals from Willian, Pedro, Branislav Ivanovic and Michy Batshuayi settled the score on that day as Chelsea went on to reach the final, which they lost 2-1 to Arsenal.
