Venue: Brentford Community Stadium, London
Two sides that have started their respective seasons in impressive fashion do battle as Brentford host Chelsea.
The Bees have settled into Premier League life seamlessly and look to be here for the long haul, while Chelsea are currently at the top of the table.
The gulf between the Championship and the Premier League is often well documented but Brentford look to have taken to life in the top-flight with ease.
They find themselves 7th in the table, with 12 points on the board from their opening 7 games and look to be distancing themselves from relegation trouble already.
Thomas Frank has assembled a squad of precocious talents and goalkeeper David Raya has already impressed in their 7 opening games.
Defensively, they have struggled a little this term, but Rico Henry and Ethan Pinnock have been two of the standouts in the back line.
Dane Cristian Norgaard is proven at the international level and he provides a real sense of steel in the heart of the Bees midfield.
Ivan Toney was the Championship’s top scorer last term and he has already made a significant impact on the team’s Premier League campaign this year.
It has been a period of joy for Chelsea fans, who saw their side lift the Champions League back in May and develop under Thomas Tuchel, but the past couple of weeks have been less successful.
A home defeat to Manchester City was backed up with a poor showing on the road against Juventus in the Champions League, but the blues did bounce back to beat Southampton last weekend.
The blues are at the top of the Premier League table, with 5 wins from their 7 opening games and they are sure to be in contention.
Defensively they look stronger than ever with Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso all performing on a regular basis.
In midfield, they are inundated with options with Mason Mount, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic all in a superb nick and contributing at both ends of the pitch.
The summer acquisition of Romelu Lukaku has transformed their outlook this term and they look to be a side full of goals too.
