Brentford vs Chelsea: Prediction, kick-off time, team news, TV, live stream, h2h results, odds today

Chelsea can take the next step of their glacier-pace revival under Mauricio Pochettino by ending their torrid run of results against Brentford this afternoon.

The Bees have won each of their last three visits to Stamford Bridge and held the Blues to a goalless draw in their own backyard last season, to account for a four-game unbeaten run in this fixture.

After edging into the FA Cup quarter-finals to make it one defeat in five in all competitions (albeit with the lone defeat coming in the Carabao Cup final), Chelsea must continue to generate momentum to threaten the European qualification places.


Meanwhile, Thomas Frank desperately needs to dig into the well of good form Brentford have in this fixture to reverse his team’s decline.

Just five points separate them from the dropzone and a run of 10 defeats in their last 12 Premier League games is relegation form, with the most recent coming after conceding four goals to an out-of-nick West Ham.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Brentford vs Chelsea is scheduled for a 3pm GMT kick-off today, Saturday, March 2, 2024.

The match will take place at Gtech Community Stadium in west London.

Brentford vs Chelsea prediction

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.
