The Englishman struck a volley past Brentford's goalkeeper to give Chelsea the lead as the first half was about to come to an end. Ben Chilwell's goal was the only goal of the match.
Brentford picked up their game in the second half around the 65th minute. They had more eagerness to score, and were dominating Chelsea. Brentford had 15 goal attempts in the second half, but Eduardo Mendy was equal to the challenge.

Here are 5 Chelsea Players That Gave A Good Performance In The Match Against Brentford;
He is the main reason Chelsea did not concede a goal in the second half of the match. Mendy made a lot of great saves in the match, and should be considered as one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.
He is one of the most skillful players in Chelsea, and after his performance against Brentford, he should be given a place in the starting lineup. He helped dominate the midfield alongside Kovacic and Kante.
Chilwell helped Chelsea score a goal, and also was important in Chelsea's attack. He is still fighting for his place in the starting lineup, and has Marcos Alonso as his competition.
A lot of fans frowned when he was seen in the starting lineup, but he delivered a great performance. Though he still has a long way to go, he has the potential to become a top-class defender.
Chalobah has great potential and keeps delivering whenever he gets the chance to play. He made it difficult for the Brentford attackers to get past him, and he had control whenever he was on the ball.
It should be noted that Timo Werner did well in the match, but the players mentioned above did a better job.
