Brentford v Chelsea: Tips, Predictions and Odds

Brentford and Chelsea will both be eyeing the bragging rights in Saturday's West London derby at the Gtech Community Stadium in the Premier League.

The Bees have slipped to 16th place in the standings after five defeats from their last six matches, while the Blues head into this clash on the back of two cup fixtures, having lost to Liverpool in the League Cup final before edging past Leeds 3-2 in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Brentford v Chelsea betting tips and predictions

Over 3.5 goals @ 13/10

Both Brentford and Chelsea have struggled defensively this season, and Saturday's meeting could turn out to be a high-scoring affair between these West London rivals.

The Bees have conceded 48 league goals, only the bottom three have let in more, while they shipped four in the defeat at West Ham last time out.

With centre-back Ben Mee expected to be missing for this clash, Thomas Frank's selection issues at the back have been exacerbated, and a clean sheet looks unlikely for the hosts.

Brentford have conceded 27 goals at the Gtech in the league this term; only Burnley and Sheffield United have worse records at home, while over 3.5 goals has landed in eight of their last 11 assignments in all competitions.

Chelsea's defensive frailties have also been on full show, as they have conceded in their last 12 away matches in all competitions and last kept a clean sheet on the road at Fulham in October.

The Blues have plenty of goals in them, with their tally of 42 in the top flight the eighth-best return, while over 3.5 strikes has landed in six of their last nine fixtures.

Conor Gallagher anytime scorer @ 4/1

Although Conor Gallagher has seemingly been close to leaving Chelsea in the last two transfer windows, he remains a key fixture in the starting XI and his form since in February has been fantastic.

The 24-year-old has provided more of an attacking threat, something that was missing from his game in the first half of the campaign, and he grabbed the winner in the 3-2 FA Cup win over Leeds last time out.

Gallagher has now hit the back of the net four times in his last five appearances, and he will be eager to stay in the goals against a Brentford side that have been fragile at the back.

Gallagher has had 31 shots in the league this season, with 12 of those on target, and his improvement in the final third of late makes him a prime candidate to score at the Gtech.

Sergio Reguilon to be booked @ 11/4

West Ham forward Mohammed Kudus had a field day down the right flank in the 4-2 win over Brentford, causing Sergio Reguilon all sorts of problems at the London Stadium, and the Spaniard could be in for another tough afternoon.

Although the 27-year-old offers a threat coming forward, his defending is questionable and he was caught out of position on a number of occasions on Monday night in the capital.

Chelsea will have studied the tapes of that loss, and they will be looking to target Reguilon, who has been booked twice from six appearances since joining the club on loan in January.

With the likes of Cole Palmer, Nicolas Jackson and Noni Madueke running at the Bees defender, the chances of a caution look to be high, and Reguilon may fall foul of the referee again.
