Thomas Tuchel sets new record with Chelsea lineup against Brentford

Thomas Tuchel sets new record with Chelsea lineup against Brentford

Chelsea need a win

Chelsea have hit a slump in recent weeks, amid COVID-19 and injury crises that have seen them win just twice in seven games.

Particularly disappointing was their most recent 0-0 draw away to Wolves, where they were perhaps lucky to get a point, and felt that the game should have been called off as they failed to name a full substitutes bench.

While still COVID-19 riddled, they have a chance to rectify their poor form as they travel up the road to take on Thomas Frank’s Brentford side in the quarter-final of the Carabao Cup.

While Brentford had their weekend’s clash postponed, they have named a close to full strength side to take on Tuchel’s Blues, minus only talisman Ivan Toney, who starts on the bench.

Chelsea, meanwhile, continue to ring the changes, with debuts for Harvey Vale, Jake Soonup Bell and Xavi Simmons in a much-changed side that has travelled to Brentford.

And, in naming his lineup, Tuchel set a new record in charge of Chelsea.

Will his faith pay off?
