Brentford vs Chelsea - LIVE!

Chelsea’s away end turned against Mauricio Pochettino and Todd Boehly on a mutinous afternoon at Brentford. Yoane Wissa and Mads Roerslev thought they had given the Bees yet another victory over their waning west London rivals, but Axel Disasi saved the Blues’ blushes with a late header to earn a 2-2 draw.

Nicolas Jackson had headed in a wonderful Malo Gusto cross in a calmer first-half, but chaos ensued on and off the pitch in the second half. Chelsea collapsed after the interval, and after celebrating star performers like Malo Gusto and Enzo Fernandez over the 90 minutes, the fans simply had enough.

The frustration brewing for months finally boiled over into chants of “Roman Abramovich” and “Jose Mourinho”. There were also lewd chants about co-owner Boehly and bos Pochettino. It must have been a confusing afternoon for Chelsea supporters, who want their team to win but also wanted to signal their frustration about the way the new Boehly-Clearlake ownership is running things. They believe they have been patient enough, giving them nearly two seasons to show signs of progress

FT: Brentford 2-2 Chelsea

16:56 , Matt Verri

That’ll do it.

Disasi’s late header earns Chelsea a point, but it’s another frustrating afternoon for the Blues.

Brentford much improved after the break - they will rue not taking all three points.

Brentford 2-2 Chelsea

16:54 , Matt Verri

90+4 mins: Toney flies in on Sterling to halt a counter, does very well to avoid a yellow card there.

We’ll have a few more minutes left, after Reguilon needed treatment for cramp.

Brentford 2-2 Chelsea

16:51 , Matt Verri

90+2 mins: Mudryk hacked down, Zanka yellow card.

Free-kick on the edge of the area. Chelsea try a clever routine, Palmer’s shot is blocked.

Brentford 2-2 Chelsea

16:49 , Matt Verri

90 mins: Palmer from the edge of the area... comfortable save.

Five minutes added on.

Nizaar Kinsella at the Gtech Community Stadium

16:47 , Matt Verri

It's a bizarre atmosphere in the away end where the Chelsea fans are trying to push their team on to win, having chanted for Roman Abramovich, against the current owner, manager and for Jose Mourinho.

It probably sums up the helter skelter emotions around the club.

Brentford 2-2 Chelsea

16:43 , Matt Verri

84 mins: Should be 3-2!

Sterling is in on goal almost immediately, tries to square it though and the chance goes.

GOAL! Brentford 2-2 Chelsea | Axel Disasi 83'

16:43 , Matt Verri


Corner taken short, Palmer eventually swings it to the back post and Disasi powers a header home.

Brentford 2-1 Chelsea

16:40 , Matt Verri

81 mins: Chelsea corner - at last starting to put a bit of pressure on Brentford.

Still plenty of time for them to get something from this match.

Brentford 2-1 Chelsea

16:36 , Matt Verri

77 mins: Roerslev has gone to the corner... fairly early for that.

Brentford keeping the ball nicely though, Chelsea really struggling.

Swung in, Reguilon wins the header at the back post... off the woodwork!

Brentford 2-1 Chelsea

16:34 , Matt Verri

75 mins: Brentford doing a good job of slowing things down.

Toney bundles into the back of Disasi, stops any hope he has of playing the ball forward quickly.

Nizaar Kinsella at the Gtech Community Stadium

16:33 , Matt Verri

Chants of "Roman Abramovich", "Boehly, you're a c***" and "Jose Mourinho" are coming from Chelsea's away end.

It has turned mutinous.

Nizaar Kinsella at the Gtech Community Stadium

16:31 , Matt Verri

Chelsea may as well waive goodbye to the Europa League through a Premier League finish if they can't come back from 2-1 down.

This would be a terrible result and a monumental setback with just 12 games to play.

The season really will become FA Cup or bust.

Brentford 2-1 Chelsea

16:30 , Matt Verri

71 mins: A change from the Blues.

Fernandez off, Mudryk in. Gallagher will drop deeper in midfield.

GOAL! Brentford 2-1 Chelsea | Yoane Wissa 69'

16:28 , Matt Verri


It’s been coming too. Ball crossed in by Reguilon, falls for Wissa and he smashes an acrobatic effort past Petrovic.

Brentford 1-1 Chelsea

16:25 , Matt Verri

66 mins: Roerslev continues to cause a real threat, he gets in down the right again.

Flashes the ball across the face of goal, Reguilon there at the back post but he sends an effort over the bar at full stretch.

Brentford 1-1 Chelsea

16:22 , Matt Verri

63 mins: This match has really opened up.

Fernandez doesn’t do enough out wide as the cross is swung in, Wissa nods it back across goal but it’s wide.

Caught in two minds between going for goal and picking out Toney. Did neither.

Brentford 1-1 Chelsea

16:20 , Matt Verri

61 mins: A real mess at the back from Chelsea.

Ball crossed in, Disasi should head it clear but completely misses it. Brentford can’t get the shot away.

Gusto charges forward on the counter, picks out Palmer perfectly but his first-time effort flashes wide. Should score.

Nizaar Kinsella at the Gtech Community Stadium

16:17 , Matt Verri

This Brentford versus Chelsea match has descended into a low-quality 3-5-2 vs 3-5-2 slug fest.

It has become a very physical encounter and is playing into the hands of Thomas Frank’s side.

Brentford 1-1 Chelsea

16:16 , Matt Verri

57 mins: It’s all getting very heated.

Caicedo lunges in, perhaps fortunate to avoid a yellow card.

Three Brentford players then dive in on Palmer at the same time - furious as a foul is given. Janelt booked for dissent.

Nizaar Kinsella at the Gtech Community Stadium

16:12 , Matt Verri

It's fair to say the entire back five is to blame for the equalising goal.

Vitaly Janelt hits the post just moments later, worrying.

Chelsea suddenly seem out of sorts in what feels like a systemic issue.

Maybe Thomas Frank's analysts have found a weakness, or maybe Chelsea have just switched off.

Brentford 1-1 Chelsea

16:12 , Matt Verri

53 mins: It’s all Brentford now, Chelsea hanging on for dear life.

Janelt’s strike from the edge of the area beats a motionless Petrovic, but hits the post.

Onyeka then fires a shot straight at the goalkeeper.

Dom Smith at the Gtech Community Stadium

16:11 , Matt Verri

Brentford level within four minutes of the break. Gusto at fault as he falls asleep and allows Reguilon to nip in and his deflected shot off Caicedo runs for Roerslev.

Poor defending from a Chelsea side who have looked rattled since conceding.

GOAL! Brentford 1-1 Chelsea | Mads Roerslev 50'

16:09 , Matt Verri

Brentford are level!

It’s a bit of a mess, but they don’t care. Toney hooks the ball in, Reguilon there at the back post.

His shot is blocked, squirms into the path of Roerslev and he smashes home from close range.

Brentford 0-1 Chelsea

16:06 , Matt Verri

47 mins: Three long-throws from Brentford earlier in this half.

Not really doing much with them tough - stretching the definition of ‘long’ too.

Back underway!

16:04 , Matt Verri

Up and running in the second-half!

Around the grounds...

15:57 , Matt Verri

Liverpool currently being held by Nottingham Forest.

Dom Smith at the Gtech Community Stadium

15:53 , Matt Verri

Half-time at the Gtech and you’d have to say Chelsea have been good value for their lead, in what is a rare clash between two sides playing a 3-5-2 formation.

Brentford have seen so little of the ball and have found it difficult to get out and hold onto it when they do nick possession.

Chelsea have been well on top.

HT: Brentford 0-1 Chelsea

15:49 , Matt Verri

The Blues lead at the break through Nicolas Jackson’s header, minutes after he had wasted a big chance.

Brentford have not got into this match at all, beyond a couple of decent early balls into the box.

Need a huge improvement if they are to deny Chelsea a first win in this fixture since 2021.


Brentford 0-1 Chelsea

15:47 , Matt Verri

45 mins: Two minutes added on.

Brentford haven’t had a kick since falling behind.

Nizaar Kinsella at the Gtech Community Stadium

15:46 , Matt Verri

Enzo Fernandez is creating chances at will.

He has put in a wonderful cross for Axel Disasi, got Jackson in behind for a missed one-on-one and played Conor Gallagher in with a lofted through ball.

It feels like he is really turning a corner now.

Brentford 0-1 Chelsea

15:44 , Matt Verri

42 mins: The Bees are really struggling, the need half-time.

Gallagher has a shot blocked from the edge of the area, before Chelsea win a corner. They are completely on top.

Brentford 0-1 Chelsea

15:41 , Matt Verri

39 mins: Brentford need to careful.

Chelsea threatening to take real control. Fernandez plays in Chilwell, fires a shot at goal but Ajer makes a good block.

Brentford 0-1 Chelsea

15:39 , Matt Verri

38 mins: Suddenly started pouring down, miserable conditions.

Gallagher goes down in the box, not a particularly convincing flop. And he’s booked for diving.

Nizaar Kinsella at the Gtech Community Stadium

15:39 , Matt Verri

Chants of "Malo Gusto" come from the away end. That's the first time I've head that while covering Chelsea.

He's had a sensational half and it is fully deserved.

Some goal, Jackson enjoyed that, shushing the home crowd after jibes at his previously missed chances.

Dom Smith at the Gtech Community Stadium

15:37 , Matt Verri

Plenty of possession for Chelsea here, and finally they have the lead.

It’s Nicolas Jackson who moments earlier had gone round Flekken but then failed to tuck it home.

Now he does give Chelsea the lead from Gusto’s pin-point cross. Great header from Jackson.

GOAL! Brentford 0-1 Chelsea | Nicolas Jackson 35'

15:37 , Matt Verri

Saying that... Chelsea lead!

And Jackson makes up for that miss. Out of nothing really.

Gusto swings in a cross, Jackson finds space in the middle and heads into the bottom corner.

Brentford 0-0 Chelsea

15:35 , Matt Verri

34 mins: Hasn’t been a lot of quality in this match so far.

Final ball or finish has not been there from either side. Neither manager will be particularly happy right now.

Brentford 0-0 Chelsea

15:31 , Matt Verri

30 mins: Gusto allowed to stroll forward, he finds Fernandez.

Slid through perfectly to Jackson, in on goal. Round the goalkeeper, tame effort... cleared off the line by Zanka! Had to score.

Brentford 0-0 Chelsea

15:29 , Matt Verri

27 mins: Crucial challenge from Colwill.

The Chelsea defender initially looks to be in trouble as the long ball comes forward once more, as Wissa threatens to run clean through.

Colwill sticks out a foot though and halts his progress, times it well.

Brentford 0-0 Chelsea

15:27 , Matt Verri

25 mins: Long ball into the Chelsea box, again the Blues don’t deal with it.

Flicked on, Wissa’s bicycle kick is straight at Petrovic! Think it would have been offside anyway.

Brentford 0-0 Chelsea

15:26 , Matt Verri

24 mins: Doesn’t take much for Brentford to burst into life.

Toney makes the run out wide, low ball into the box and Wissa gets across Disasi. Can’t get his shot on target though.

Dom Smith at the Gtech Community Stadium

15:25 , Matt Verri

What was starting to look like a lovely free-flowing Chelsea attack ends with the ball getting caught behind Nicolas Jackson and rolling up his leg, thwarting the attack.

Frustrating, but the signs are there that Chelsea are starting to up the ante midway through this first half.

Brentford 0-0 Chelsea

15:24 , Matt Verri

22 mins: Nice Chelsea move, Jackson is driving into the box.

Chilwell wants it at the back post, but the striker stumbles forward, trips over the ball and it’s a complete mess.

Brentford 0-0 Chelsea

15:22 , Matt Verri

20 mins: Brentford setting up for a long-throw.

It’s flung in, the Bees do get the flick on at the near post but the ball loops up for Petrovic.

Brentford 0-0 Chelsea

15:20 , Matt Verri

18 mins: Chelsea looking confident enough in possession, without really threatening.

Far from convincing at the back though when Brentford do win it back. Plenty of threat out wide.

Brentford 0-0 Chelsea

15:17 , Matt Verri

15 mins: Brentford win a cheap free-kick out wide. Reguilon will swing this into the box.

Anti-climax. Deep to the back post, flicks off a Brentford head and out for a goal-kick.

Brentford 0-0 Chelsea

15:14 , Matt Verri

12 mins: That was very, very close.

Brentford launch a ball over the top, Petrovic on the edge of his area to claim. Was it outside of the box?

Toney thinks so, the Brentford fans think so. The referee... does not.

Dom Smith at the Gtech Community Stadium

15:13 , Matt Verri

Huge chance for Brentford that could have been avoided from a Chelsea perspective.

Reguilon’s cross is a speculative one and it somehow evades the heads of both Colwill and Chilwell.

Toney is there but can only volley into the bodies of both. Why could Chelsea’s defenders not head it clear?

Then Yoanne Wissa hammers wide from range. The Blues too open at the back.

Brentford 0-0 Chelsea

15:12 , Matt Verri

10 mins: Reguilon whips in a great cross from deep, Toney free at the back post.

He volleys it at goal, bounces off Colwill and back onto Toney, out of goal.

Let-off for Chelsea, that was terrible defending.

Brentford 0-0 Chelsea

15:11 , Matt Verri

9 mins: Chelsea’s best moment of the match.

Palmer gets in down the right, picks out Fernandez. His shot is not particularly well hit, but nearly falls for Jackson. Roerslev pokes it behind.

Corner taken short, Fernandez curls the ball in eventually and Disasi flicks a header over the bar.

Brentford 0-0 Chelsea

15:07 , Matt Verri

5 mins: First sign of a Brentford attack, as Toney lets the ball run through to Wissa.

He has space to run into, but the offside flag is up. Neither side has really got going yet.

Nizaar Kinsella at the Gtech Community Stadium

15:05 , Matt Verri

Cole Palmer goes down injured. A heart in mouth moment for a second, but he is back up and continuing to play.

It was an innocuous incident, so hopefully nothing significant.

Brentford 0-0 Chelsea

15:04 , Matt Verri

2 mins: Low-key start to the match.

Chelsea dominating possession, Brentford happy to sit off for now. They will, as ever, carry a real threat on the counter.


15:02 , Matt Verri

We are up and running!

Nizaar Kinsella at the Gtech Community Stadium

15:00 , Matt Verri

Both teams are in pre-match huddles ahead of kick-off.

It has become commonplace for Chelsea to start matches this way, with chants of "ohhhh Thiago Silva" coming from the away end as he returns to the bench.

There's also a minute's applause for Stan Bowles.

Here we go...

14:54 , Matt Verri

Teams will be out onto the pitch very shortly.

Brentford have lost their last four London derbies, beaten last time out by West Ham. Need more this afternoon.

Chelsea were far from convincing in midweek when beating Leeds - that would not have done much to boost their confidence.

Warm-up time!

14:45 , Matt Verri

Kick-off about 15 minutes away.

It’s Toney and Wissa up front for Brentford this afternoon. Maupay and his wind-up antics will have to wait.

Brentford look to double up

14:38 , Matt Verri

As we’ve mentioned, Chelsea have a really poor recent record against Brentford.

Their last win over the Bees came in 2021, with Chelsea beaten at Stamford Bridge earlier this season to continue that miserable run.

Need to find a way to snap the winless streak this afternoon.

Time running out for Chelsea?

14:31 , Matt Verri

Big afternoon for both sides...

Mikel: Pochettino would have been sacked under Abramovich

14:24 , Matt Verri

John Obi Mikel believes Mauricio Pochettino deserves time at Chelsea, but he expects European qualification and improved performances.

The former Blues midfielder was at Wembley for the Carabao Cup final defeat to Liverpool last week, as the Chelsea boss failed to win his first trophy in English football.

“Some of the criticism has been over the top, but we went through the same thing playing for Chelsea when we were not winning, getting criticised and watching managers losing their jobs,” the club legend, who won 10 major honours in his nine-year spell at Chelsea, told Standard Sport.

“This is Chelsea. You have to win. You have to win games and trophies. Yes, we’ve given them time, but they have had time to start gelling, coming together, and playing much better.

“I defend the players and coach. They have to be given time, but how much time? This is Chelsea FC.

“If this was the [Roman] Abramovich era, he would have lost his job, but I hope the new owners give Poch time. Let’s see where we finish at the end of the season.”

As expected, Zanka, Nathan Collins and Kristoffer Ajer start in a makeshift back-three for a Brentford side who, as manager Thomas Frank was so keen to point out in yesterday’s press conference, are without every member of last season’s favoured back-four.

That’s Ben Mee, Ethan Pinnock, Aaron Hickey and Rico Henry all out — and further forward the likes of Bryan Mbeumo and Kevin Schade remain side-lined too.

Brentford in real need of victory, and their recent record against Chelsea makes for impressive reading: three wins and a draw in their last four meetings.

Nizaar Kinsella at the Gtech Community Stadium

14:14 , Matt Verri

Chelsea have a pretty dismal record versus Brentford since their Premier League return, but their one good day came courtesy of a wonderful strike from Ben Chilwell at wing-back.

He is back in that position in a 3-5-2 system today. It's the first time Chelsea have started this way under Mauricio Pochettino.

Trevoh Chalobah breaks into the starting line up as soon as he marks his return from injury.

Another vote of confidence for Cobham as Chelsea look to sell their homegrown talent to balance the books.

Confirmed Chelsea lineup

14:11 , Jonathan Gorrie

Chelsea XI: Petrovic, Gusto, Disasi, Colwill, Chilwell, Caicedo, Chalobah, Palmer, Fernandez, Gallagher, Jackson

Subs: Sanchez, Cucurella, Thiago Silva, Sterling, Mudryk, Madueke, Casadei, Gilchrist, Tauriainen

Confirmed Brentford lineup

14:10 , Jonathan Gorrie

Brentford XI: Flekken, Jorgensen, Ajer, Collins, Roerslev, Onyeka, Norgaard, Janelt, Reguilon, Toney, Wissa

Subs: Maupay, Jensen, Ghoddos, Strakosha, Lewis-Potter, Damsgaard, Baptiste, Yarmolyuk, Kim

Brentford put faith in Nathan Collins for nightmare run after Ben Mee injury

13:44 , Jonathan Gorrie

Losing Ben Mee to a potential season-ending injury only ramps up the need for Nathan Collins to come good in the latter months of his first season at Brentford.

Collins has struggled to settle since his £23million transfer from Wolves in July.

That move made him Brentford’s record signing at the time, but the 22-year-old centre-back is taking longer than expected to show himself as being the “composed and calm defender” manager Thomas Frank believed he was signing eight months ago.

Mykhailo Mudryk must do the dirty work if he's to finally deliver

13:27 , Jonathan Gorrie

Mykhailo Mudryk is slowly rebuilding his confidence, but it is resolving flaws in his game that will be key to his long-term success.

Under both personal and collective pressure, the 23-year-old winger was back among the goals in a crucial 3-2 FA Cup win over Leeds in midweek. The Ukrainian produced an excellent volleyed strike for his under-fire manager Mauricio Pochettino to buy him more time and reach a Cup quarter-final against Leicester this month.

Brentford: Thomas Frank speaks to Neal Maupay over wind-up antics

13:15 , Jonathan Gorrie

Thomas Frank says he has spoken to Neal Maupay about his reputation for engaging in the darks of the game and antagonising opponents.

Maupay, on loan at Brentford this season from Everton, has caught the ire of Kyle Walker and James Maddison in recent weeks, and Michail Antonio has described him as “the most disliked person on the field.”

Mauricio Pochettino coy on transfer influence at Chelsea

12:56 , Jonathan Gorrie

Mauricio Pochettino was reluctant to respond when asked if he should have more control over transfers at Chelsea, amid doubts over Conor Gallagher’s future.

Asked if he could influence whether Gallagher would remain at Stamford Bridge, the Argentine said: “I am the coach, that needs to be my place.”

Brentford vs Chelsea: Head to head (h2h) history and results

12:37 , Jonathan Gorrie

Chelsea have failed to score in their last three meetings with the Bees, and have lost three of the last four meetings.

Brentford wins: 7

Chelsea wins: 10

Draws: 3

Brentford vs Chelsea: Score prediction today

12:32 , Jonathan Gorrie

The dotted line is creeping up on Brentford and there was little sign against West Ham that they are up for this fight for survival. Chelsea, while still far from the finished product, should be able to take advantage of their lack of confidence.

Chelsea to win, 2-1.


Chelsea team news vs Brentford today

12:32 , Jonathan Gorrie

Pochettino will have to decide whether to keep Mykhailo Mudryk in his Chelsea line-up after his goal against Leeds in midweek.

Ben Chilwell, Levi Colwill, Cole Palmer and Conor Gallagher are among the regulars set to return after being rested from the XI while Thiago Silva and Marc Cucurella are in line to return.

Christopher Nkunku, Benoit Badiashile and Romeo Lavia are among those still unavailable.


Brentford team news vs Chelsea today

12:31 , Jonathan Gorrie

Ben Mee will miss the rest of the season after the Brentford defender suffered a foot injury last time out.

With fellow centre-back Ethan Pinnock also recently lost to injury, Nathan Collins is set for a recall while Bryan Mbeumo, Rico Henry and Kevin Schade remain on their lengthy absentee list.
