Brentford vs Chelsea
The Blues will face off with Brentford in the day’s late Premier League kick-off.
Chelsea head into the game having enjoyed an excellent start to the 2021/22 campaign.
Granted, they would be dealt their first league loss off the season at the hands of Manchester City shortly before the October international break.
However, Thomas Tuchel’s side were still able to top the league table heading into the break thanks to Liverpool, who are the only side unbeaten in the PL this term, drawing three games.
And with Chelsea now set for a much, on paper, kinder run of games, it is expected that the Londoners will remain around the title picture for some time.
Brentford, though, are not expected to be a pushover. The Bees have enjoyed a fine start to their first-ever Premier League campaign, winning three, drawing three and losing one of their first seven ties – beating Arsenal and drawing with Liverpool in the process.
The latest on Pulisic ahead of Brentford
Ahead of the clash with Brentford, an update on Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has emerged.
The American has featured just once in the PL this term after suffering with Covid-19 and then being ruled out with an ankle injury picked up whilst on international duty in September:
Now though, an insight into when Pulisic could return has been provided.
As per football.london, Pulisic could make his return to training as early as next week and, all being well, may make his return for Chelsea against Brentford, although almost certainly from the subs bench.
