Chelsea vs Brentford Full Match Reports

Brentford accomplished a historic feat by emerging victorious in their first three encounters at Stamford Bridge, securing a 2-0 win against Chelsea in the Premier League.

During the first half, Chelsea displayed dominance on the field and came close to taking the lead in the 10th minute when Noni Madueke’s splendid curling shot struck the crossbar. Operating in a central attacking midfield role, Cole Palmer orchestrated the play, delivering a precise cross to Marc Cucurella, who, despite never scoring for the Blues, directed a feeble shot that was comfortably saved by Mark Flekken. Palmer then set up Raheem Sterling moments later, but the latter’s attempt soared over the net. Bryan Mbeumo had the best opportunity for Brentford in the first half with his cross-come-shot, but it was saved by Robert Sánchez.

The commencement of the second half witnessed a peculiar incident involving Neal Maupay, who, as a substitute, received a yellow card for entering the pitch and kicking the ball away, just as Palmer was about to take a free-kick. Only a few minutes later, Brentford took the lead when Mbeumo’s cross found Ethan Pinnock at the far post, resulting in his first goal of the season. Chelsea’s assistant manager, Jesús Pérez, was later sent off, and towards the end of the match, the Bees nearly doubled their advantage on a counter-attack, only for Sánchez to make an excellent save before Mbeumo’s subsequent shot missed wide.

In a dramatic turn of events during stoppage time, Sánchez ventured forward for a corner but failed to return in time, allowing Mbeumo to tap the ball into an empty net, finally scoring a goal. This disappointing defeat further highlights Chelsea’s struggles, as they have managed to win only one out of their last 13 Premier League home games. In the meantime, Thomas Frank’s Brentford leapfrogged over them in the standings, securing consecutive victories following a six-match winless streak in the league.

Man of the Match: Bryan Mbeumo (Brentford).
