Chelsea go into this game in the bottom half of the table with 35 points from their 25 games, while Brentford will be looking for breathing room to them and the relegation places, currently sitting in 16th with 25 points. With 12 matches remaining, the Blues trail fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur by 12 points for a spot in the Europa League and after their League Cup defeat to Liverpool, it’s now looking that the FA Cup is their best bet to play in Europe next season.

Brentford meanwhile, have also had a tough campaign having lost 10 of their last 12 matches in the Premier League (W2) . The Bees have also conceded 48 goals in their 26 Premier League games so far this season, already two more than they shipped in the whole of 2022-23 and kept just one clean sheet in their 13 Premier League home games this season.
