Chelsea has again proven to have a problem with scoring goals, loosing 2-0 to Brentford at the Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea welcomed Brentford at the Bridge for their first clash of the London derby. Dominating most part of the match, but the team again failed to show powers in scoring goals.
Going into the match with Sterling, Nicolas Jackson and Noni Madueka upfront in a 433 formation. With numerous opportunities, Chelsea attacking trio failed to break the stacked Brentford defense line.
Thomas Frank came into the match with a defensive formation but were ready 5o force attack with counters. This turns in favour of the visitors who were able to break Chelsea defense.
Nicolas Jackson couldn’t manage any shot on target in the entirety of the game,with only one of his shot going wayward in the first half. The striker dubbed “next Drogba” is yet to find his scoring boot and is suffering from continuous bad games since joining from Villareal.
Brentford becomes the first team to win their first 3 matches at Stamford Bridge. Winning Chelsea in three straight seasons since they made their debut in the English Premier League.
Chelsea will face Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Newcastle United, Brighton and Manchester United.
