After letting slip a two-goal lead against rivals Arsenal to draw last weekend, Chelsea will be looking to make amends when they welcome west London outfit Brentford to Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon (12:30).

We’ve picked out a couple of the best markets on offer for this derby clash.

Chelsea vs Brentford Betting Tips

  • Chelsea and both teams to score – 23/10

Match Odds

Chelsea are the favourites to come away with the victory in this one at 8/13. If you feel that they may be forced to settle for another stalemate, a draw can be backed at 3/1, while Brentford are priced at 4/1.

Both teams have scored in five of Brentford’s last seven Premier League games. BTTS in this game is valued at 4/5.

Over 2.5 goals is also available at 4/5 but you will find better value backing over 3.5 goals at 2/1.

Team News 

Chelsea have quite a few injuries to deal with ahead of the weekend. Romeo Lavia, Christopher Nkunku, Ben Chilwell, Armando Broja, Trevoh Chalobah, Carney Chukwuemeka and Wesley Fofana are all sidelined.

For Brentford, Ivan Toney remains out of action due to his suspension. Frank also has a few players out injured which isn’t helping matters, with Mikkel Damsgaard, Kevin Schade, Josh Dasilva and Shandon Baptiste all ruled out for the weekend.

Chelsea and both teams to score @ 23/10

It is still quite hard to believe how Chelsea didn’t beat Arsenal last weekend. For the majority of the game they were in control and then one mistake from Robert Sanchez saw them fold and invited the Gunners back into the contest.

They are starting to show much more of a fluency in their attacks with Mykhailo Mudryk starting to find his feet with the Blues, and Cole Palmer settling in nicely to his new surroundings. Chelsea should have more than enough to beat Brentford this weekend, but the Bees’ heads will be up after they secured their first home win of the campaign against Burnley last time out.

Cole Palmer to score anytime @ 7/4

Palmer scored his second Premier League goal for Chelsea in as many games against Arsenal last week as he converted the penalty which put his side ahead. He has four goal involvements in his last three league appearances for the Blues and we are expecting this to continue against the Bees.

The youngster plays with a directness but also oozes composure when he’s in possession. He isn’t afraid to take risks and he is difficult to defend against when he is dribbling. Brentford are going to be in for a tough afternoon trying to keep him quiet on Saturday, and he could make it three goals in as many appearances.
