Brentford vs Chelsea LIVE: Jongste Premier League -opdaterings
The Blues look to consolidate their place at the top of the table with the high-flying Bees eager to pull off another shock


Tuchel on Chelsea injuries and Brentford

Chelsea visit Brentford in what should be an entertaining west London derby in the Premierliga. Newly-promoted Brentford played out a 3-3 thriller with Liverpool in their last home match and Thomas Frank’s side are enjoying life in the top flight as they prepare to host the European champions. The Bees have also secured impressive wins over Arsenal and West Ham this season and will be quietly confident of causing a further upset and continuing their strong start to the campaign.

Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea defeated Southampton at Stamford Bridge before the international break, which was a welcomed result following back-to-back defeats by Manchester City and Juventus. The Blues came into the weekend top of the Premier League table but will be looking for an improvement on their performance levels, although the possible returns of N’Golo Kante and Reece James should help in that regard. Romelu Lukaku will be aiming to get back among the goals after going three Premier League matches without scoring.

The Chelsea manager was wary of the challenge posed by visiting Brentford immediately after the international break, especially with defender Thiago Silva unavailable following his late involvement with Brazil. “This is the big challenge, and it’s always difficult after all the travelling and all the games for different teams, verskillende lande, different styles of play,” Tuchel said. “Nobody expects an easy game tomorrow, this is clear for us. We face a tough opponent in a very difficult moment, because they are in a very good moment, they have a lot of points and they deserve them.”

The Blues have dropped points in three of their last four top-flight matches away to newly-promoted sides with two draws and one defeat.

Chelsea have scored a league-high seven first-half goals this season and Thomas Tuchel’s side have had 12 different goalscorers in the Premier League this season (excluding own goals), more than any other side.

Jamie Vardy stuns Manchester United as Leicester snatch win in six-goal thriller

Dirty sheets, divine goals, utter chaos and the death of an English league record unbeaten away run.

Leicester swatted Manchester United 4-2 at King Power Stadium in a spectacle that was, wel, pure Barclays.

Mason Greenwood and Youri Tielemans decorated it with the kind of strikes that demand Goal of the Season accolades.

Thomas Tuchel unhappy after losing Chelsea duo after international break

Thomas Tuchel has admitted Premierliga managers have little choice but to accept losing top players for pivotal matches due to international commitments.

Thiago Silva will miss Saturday’s trip to Brentford due to his Brazil duties, with the experienced centre-back not even expected back in England until 24 hours before the match.

Antonio Rudiger has returned from Germany action with a back injury and will miss the Bees clash, though Romelu Lukaku is fit to feature after muscle soreness cut short his time with Belgium.

Brentford vs Chelsea

Brentford’s wins against Arsenal and West Ham, plus the draw with Crystal Palace, means they are the first team to remain unbeaten in their first three Premier League London derbies.

They have won seven of nine top-flight matches against sides starting the day top of the table, with this their first such game since January 1947.

Leicester 4 – 2 Man Utd

Reaction from Leicester’s Jamie Vardy who said:

It was massively important. The most important thing was the performance because we had let our standards slip but we had the international break to reflect on things.

“We let him [Mason Greenwood] come inside way to easy onto his favoured foot and he put it right into the top corner. There were no complaints but I think you saw the reaction of the lads.

“We put a three in midfield and it gives him [Youri Tielemans] a bit more freedom [to get forward].

“It is brilliant for him [Patson Daka]. He has been working so hard in training. I am over the moon for him and I’m sure there are plenty more to come from Patson. Hopefully that will start pushing us forward in the table.”

GOAL! Aston Villa 2 – 3 Wolves (Neves, 90+5’)⚽️

90+5 min: Wolves have won it! They’ve scored three goals in the last 10 minutes to come from behind and beat Aston Villa! Dean Smith can’t believe it. He’s dumbstruck on the sidelines.

Full-time: Leicester 4 – 2 Man Utd

90+5 min: Defeat for Manchester United! A glorious win for Leicester City. The Foxes came from behind to beat United at the King Power stadium. Marcus Rashford scored on his return to the side and Jamie Vardy continues his impressive run.

Great game for the neutrals, not so much for the Manchester United fans.
