EFL CUP NOW 3







Tonight, Brentford will have a match against Chelsea at home in the quarter-finals of the English League Cup. Brentford is a rookie in the English Premier League 2021/22, but plays extremely fiercely, they many times make it difficult for big teams, including a 2-0 victory over Arsenal or an unexpected 3-3 draw. before the mighty Liverpool. 

The home team at Brentford Community has an enthusiastic pressing style, their stars maintain great determination in matches. However, the fact that the players have quite a bit of experience in the field and the force is quite thin, making it impossible for Brentford to maintain stability. After 16 matches played in the Premier League, this team has 5 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses.


12th place on the chart is not too bad a rank for a rookie like Brentford. At home, Brentford players have won the last 2 matches. It is a result that gives them confidence before a difficult match against Chelsea, a team that is much more appreciated. In the first leg in the English Premier League in October, Brentford made the Blues an extremely difficult match. The away team only won with the minimum score.

Brentford has welcomed a few pillars back after they tested positive for Covid-19, but it is impossible to ask these players to show their best. It is likely that coach Thomas Frank will have to use substitutes in the match against Chelsea. 


On the other side of the front line, after a stable period of play, Chelsea is showing signs of slowing down. They consistently get disappointing results. Before an Everton in crisis that Chelsea could not win all 3 points. This is a match where they have shown their poverty in both attack and defence. They let the opponent hold the draw with a score of 1-1. In the following match, Chelsea continued to disappoint when Wolves held a 0-0 draw.

Before that was a 2-3 defeat against West Ham and a 1-1 draw against MU. In a row of bad results, Chelsea dropped from the top of the table to 3rd in the Premier League table, they are 6 points behind the leader of the table Man City. The pressure on coach Thomas Tuchel is quite large, and there have been rumors that Chelsea may sack the German teacher if the situation does not improve.

The biggest reason for Chelsea's decline is that coach Tuchel does not have the best force. Many pillars of The Blues have been injured, in addition, 5 of their other players are positive for Covid-19 and have not been able to return to play. The former PSG coach criticized the Premier League BTC for forcing Chelsea to play against Wolves without the best squad, leading to a 0-0 draw afterwards.

To prepare for the match against Brentford, coach Thomas Tuchel promoted 8 young players to the first team. Among the Harvey Vale, Josh Brooking, Alfie Gilchrist, Dion Rankine, Xavier Simons, Joe Haigh, Jay Wareham and Lewis Hall, many there will probably be one or two players on the pitch from the start. Using young players is Tuchel's way to deal with the current crisis of force.
