Chelsea head into the game having enjoyed an excellent start to the 2021/22 season campaign.
They would be dealt their first league loss of the season at the hands of Manchester City shortly before the October international break.

And with Chelsea now set for a much, on paper, kinder run of games, it is expected that the Londoners will remain around the title picture for some time.
The Bees as Brentford’s side is known, though, are not expected to be a pushover. Brentford has enjoyed a fine start to their first-ever Premier League campaign, winning three, drawing three, and losing one of their first seven fixtures – beating Arsenal and drawing with Liverpool in the process.
Ahead of the clash with Brentford, an update on Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has emerged.
The American has featured just once in the PL this term after suffering from Covid-19 and then being ruled out with an ankle injury picked up whilst on international duty in September:
Now though, an insight into when Pulisic could return has been provided.
Sources have revealed that Pulisic could make his return to training as early as next week and, all being well, may make his return for Chelsea against Brentford, although almost certainly from the subs bench.
