The continued uncertainty surrounding Chelsea’s future off the pitch has appeared to galvanise Thomas Tuchel‘s troops, who have done a stellar job of focusing on their on-field matters as they continue to fight for success on three fronts this term.

Hakim Ziyech and Romelu Lukaku were both on target as Chelsea advanced to the semi-finals with a 2-0 victory over Boro in the FA Cup last time out, with that result following Champions League success against Lille and a controversial top-flight triumph over Newcastle United.

Tuchel may already have one eye on the first leg of his side’s Champions League quarter-final with Real Madrid on Wednesday evening, but the Blues will not want to lose their grip on third place in the Premier League table, with the European champions comfortably five points clear of fourth-placed Arsenal.

Winning six on the bounce in all tournaments is just what the doctor ordered for Chelsea before the unforgiving April schedule begins, and the Blues also enter Saturday’s game on a five-game victorious run in the Premier League – conceding just one goal in the process.

Tuchel’s side have also gone 17 games unbeaten at their West London home since that 1-0 loss to Manchester City back in September, and only Liverpool (7) have conceded fewer top-flight goals on their own turf than Chelsea (10) this term, with the Blues seeking to make Brentford’s short journey across the capital a miserable one.

Securing their spot in the big time for the 2022-23 season is proving somewhat more challenging than initially anticipated for Thomas Frank‘s side after their storming start to the season, but the 15th-placed Bees still sit comfortably eight points clear of the trapdoor, although 18th-placed Watford do have a game in hand.

Failure to keep a clean sheet in their last 12 Premier League games away from home does spell concern for Brentford ahead of a visit to the Champions League holders, and it would be a shock to see their tally of one win from their last 11 top-flight games on the road improve in the capital this weekend.

Furthermore, Chelsea have already claimed a pair of victories over Brentford in the EFL Cup and Premier League this term – keeping two clean sheets to boot against their West London rivals and finding the back of the net three times in that span.

Chelsea’s Ben Chilwell remains out for the long-term, and Tuchel has also confirmed that Callum Hudson-Odoi is still sidelined, but Andreas Christensen and Reece James should both be fit to return.

However, the Blues boss will most likely want to avoid taking any unnecessary risks on the duo, while Saul Niguez and Kepa Arrizabalaga could both be back in the squad following recent bouts of illness.

Christian Pulisic will be a late arrival back from international duty, so a spot could open up for Timo Werner to rejoin the attack after finding the back of the net for Germany against Israel alongside Kai Havertz.

Meanwhile, Brentford’s Josh Dasilva has completed his three-match ban but has now picked up a hamstring injury, and Julian Jeanvier remains out of contention with his serious knee injury.

Saman Ghoddos tested positive for COVID-19 alongside Christian Eriksen before the Leicester game, but the latter returned with a bang for Denmark – scoring in both of their friendlies versus the Netherlands and Serbia.

Frank will assess the fitness of the playmaker, but he ought to be fine to take his place in the hole at Stamford Bridge, while Wissa will be in no mood to drop out after his consolation against Leicester.
