Thomas Tuchel's side were however handed a tough one by the home side who turned up a different monster in the second half despite trailing to that super goal from Ben Chilwell at the end of the 45 minutes.
Having secured a draw against Liverpool here a few weeks ago, the confidence was there for Brentford to cause another upset against a side tipped to contest for the title this season.
Chelsea had to defend for the better part of the second half and had some luck go their way as Buemo hit the post twice while Eduardo Mendy had to make some good saves.
Taking to social media, Chelsea fans had no other to thank than Mendy for putting such a top performance.
Cirzo: Edouard Mendy is the best in the world. Man saved Chelsea by his own.
