Chelsea eyes first win with Lampard

Chelsea and Brentford are both looking to get their first wins in this match, as they meet in the Premier League once against. Chelsea is looking to get their first win under their interim coach, Frank Lampard. Brentford on the other hand is looking to finally have a win this month, as they have yet to record a win in April. Since the arrival of Lampard for Chelsea, they failed to score a win, a record they want to change. They are hopeful that his arrival will finally bear fruit through this match. Brentford on the other hand is needing of wins, to avoid dropping lower in the league table. Currently, these two teams are struggling, which makes this meeting more anticipating. Chelsea is hosting this match on April 27, 2023, at 2:45 AM (GMT+8).

This meeting is already the 19th West London derby between these two teams. For the past 18 matches between these two teams, it was the hosts who has the better record. From those 18 matches, they won 10, while the visitors only have five victories. However, it seems like the hosts are not doing well against the visitors in their last two matches. In fact, after winning seven in eight matches, the hosts are now winless in their last two games versus the visitors. However, the visitors are no better as they suffered six loss in their last eight away games against the hosts. Additionally, in their last four league games, they failed to score a single win.


Premier League: Chelsea

Chelsea is currently sitting at the 11th of the league table with 39 points across their names. Although this place is somehow safe for them, Chelsea is still aiming for more, as they are in a winless run. Ever since they are placed under the leadership of Frank Lampard, they have yet to win a match. This is understandable as all are still adjusting, but they want to end this record as much as possible. They cannot afford more losses in the contest as they will continuously fall in the league table. Unfortunately, Chelsea are from a 2-0 loss against Real Madrid on their last game. With that, they are now hoping to bounce back through this important match, and build momentum. This is what they need to do though, as they are a team who failed to make a mark this season. Luckily, they have Joao Felix, and Enzo Fernandez who are both lethal for them.

Chelsea is now dealing with a major blow as Reece James, and Mason Mount are already out this season, following their injuries. They will join Kai Havertz, Armando Broja, and Kalifou Koulibaly on the sideline. Fortunately, Ben Chilwell, Benoit Badiashile, Noni Madueke, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and David Datro Fofana are all returning in this game.

In the league table, Brentford is currently sitting at the 10th of the league table with 44 points across their names. If they are lucky enough to win in this match, they could climb to the ninth of the league table with 47 points. However, they need to work harder, as they have been dealing with inconsistencies in the league. They are fortunate enough that their last match ended in a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa. As they come into this match, they are aiming to somehow improve their way of playing. This is what they need though, as they remain to be winless in the month of April, which does not look good at all. Brentford failed to be at their best this season, and are now in desperate need of wins to retain a safe spot in the standings. Additionally, they also want to end their winless run in the contest to continue progressing in the league.

Due to an Achilles injury, Christian Norgaard is out for Brentford. He will now join Pontus Jansson, Kristoffer Ajer, Thomas Strakosha, and Keane Lewis-Potter on the sidelines.
