Chelsea will be traveling away to play newly promoted Brentford United. The game is expected to be a very interesting watch as Brentford have been in impressive form ever since they gained promotion to the English Premier League.
The game will be played at 17:30pm West African Time and the referee in charge is Anthony Taylor.
Chelsea will be more concerned about their defense line ahead of today's encounter against Brentford due to the absences of Thiago Silva and Toni Rudiger. Tony Rudiger is out with a back injury, and Thiago Silva is coming back from Brazil late and will be out against Brentford. Chelsea will also be without Christian Pulisic, who is currently recovering from an ankle injury, while Hakim Ziyech is available due to sickness.
Meanwhile, Tuchel and Chelsea fans can rejoice because Nkolo Kanté has recovered from the Corona virus.
Reece James and Romelu Lukaku, like Kante, have overcome minor fitness problems and should be in the starting lineup.
Chelsea's possible lineup against Brentford is as follows:
Goalkeeper: Eduoard Mendy
Defenders: Trevor Chalobah, Andrea Christensen, César Azpilicueta.
Midfielders: Alonso, Jorginho, N'Golo Kanté, Hudson-Odoi.
Forwards: Timo Werner, Romelu Lukaku, Mason Mount
