Chelsea are set to face Brentford on Saturday evening as they travel to Brentford Community Stadium for their first match if the season against Brentford. The Blues are looking to cement their winning ways in the Premier League as they face Brentford for match week eight. However, Tuchel will be forced to change the team's formation due to the absence of some crucial players from the squad.
Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger and Pulisic are set to miss the clash against Brentford on Saturday. According to Tuchel, Silva played 90 minutes against Uruguay and will probably arrive late prompting him to miss the game. Meanwhile Rudiger and Pulisic are out due to injury as they will have to spend more days recovering.
However, With Ngolo Kante and Reece James back to the squad, Chelsea are assured of winning against Brentford. Ngolo Kante has been out for days after testing positive for Covid 19.

Brentford are twelve points at position seven in the Premier League. Chelsea are currently first in the Premier League and will be looking to maintain their position by gaining a win in Saturday evening clash.
