Chelsea will face Brentford in a midweek Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.
Frank Lampard, the interim Blues manager, is hoping for a win against Brentford as he has been unable to stop the team’s poor form under Graham Potter.
The team’s recent performances have been disappointing, and the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as a potential new manager is looming.
For Lampard, a win would be crucial, as Chelsea have already fallen to a great extent.
Although Lampard’s status as a club legend will never be in question, ending his final involvement with the club in this manner would be remarkably meek.
The Bees, on the other hand, have the potential to qualify for Europe and are looking to reduce the gap between themselves and seventh-placed Liverpool.
They will be looking to capitalize on Chelsea’s poor form and earn three crucial points.
