Posted on by Sreya

Chelsea vs Brentford

Chelsea vs Brentford – Chelsea host Brentford at the Stamford Bridge on 28th January, Saturday in a relatively easy fourth round fixture of the FA Cup.

Chelsea are comfortably sitting atop the English Premier League standings while their opponents Brentford are in the Championship.

Chelsea won 4-1 against Petersborough United in the third round of the FA Cup while Brentford saw off Eastleigh in a 5-1 win in the corresponding fixture.

Team News

Chelsea have a completely healthy squad to choose from, but Antonio Conte is expected to make a number of changes to his starting eleven. Brentford will be without Alan Judge, Lewis MacLeod, Alan McCormack, Sam Saunders and Callum Elder, all of whom are sidelined through injuries or regaining match fitness.

Chelsea Possible Starting Lineup: Asmir Begovic, Kurt Zouma, John Terry, Nathan Ake, Victor Moses, Nathaniel Chalobah, Cesc Fabregas, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Willian, Michy Batshuayi.

Brentford Possible Starting Lineup: Daniel Bentley, John Egan, Harlee Dean, Andreas Bjelland, Maxime Colin, Josh McEachran, Ryan Woods, Nico Yennaris, Tom Field, Romaine Sawyers, Lasse Vibe.

“We play two very tough games against two rivals for the league, but for me now my focus and concentration is to go into the next round of the FA Cup, and I hope the same thought is in the mind of my players. Every competition must be a priority for us. To have another competition with the league is very important, because also this season we didn’t play in the Champions League or the Europa League.”

– Antonio Conte, Chelsea.
