Chelsea will be looking to make it five victories in the Premier league on the bounce when they travel to Brentford Community Stadium to take on Brentford in their Matchday 12 tie on Wednesday night. Brentford have made an inconsistent campaign this season, having won three, drawn four and lost three of their 10 fixtures that’s why they currently sit mid table. However the Bees will be happy with their campaign so far as only one point is keeping them outside the European places. They claimed a 2-0 victory over Brighton last time out, ending their three-match winless run in the top flight and they will be looking to make it back-to-back victories on Wednesday, although they face a revived Chelsea and will need to play at the top of their game. Chelsea made an inconsistent start to the campaign this season under Thomas Tuchel, but they have started to look a different side under Graham Potter now. Since the former Brighton manager took over, the Blues are yet to suffer a defeat, winning five times and drawn once across all competitions. They claimed 2-0 win over Aston Villa in the topflight last time out, making it their fourth consecutive win the Premier League on the bounce. The run has seen climb into fourth-place, sitting on 19 points, three points above Man United in fourth and four behind both Man City and Tottenham, who have played one match more than the Blues.
