Chelsea put themselves back in the top four with a steely win at Aston Villa to remain unbeaten under Graham Potter.
Here are all the details ahead of the match…
Chelsea side who boast clean sheets in seven of their last ten matches away to London opposition (W7, D2, L1). They’ve also secured a shutout in each of their last two PL games (W2), with the latest against Aston Villa resulting in manager Graham Potter hailing goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has endured a rollercoaster career at the club, as ‘world class’. Those two victories make up part of a six-game unbeaten run (W5, D1) for Potter since taking over as Blues boss last month.
This fixture had an interesting H2H quirk last season which saw the away team on the day win all three competitive matches between the two (Chelsea: W2, L1). Confidence should therefore be high that Potter can become only the eighth PL manager to win his first four PL matches in charge of a club, and interestingly, four of the previous seven have actually been Chelsea managers!
Players to watch
Thanks to his double on Friday, Ivan Toney has scored 44% of Brentford’s PL goals this season – that’s the second-highest percentage of any player in the competition. Loving life under Potter, Mason Mount has registered five goal contributions across his last three competitive matches for Chelsea (G2, A3).
