Welcome to Chelsea vs Brentford
Good afternoon everyone and welcome to SunSport’s live coverage of Chelsea vs Brentford in the Premier League.
You read that right… the Premier League! It’s back after what felt like a monotonous international break for England fans, but a nerve-wracking one for others.
Chelsea are bang in form at the moment and will be going for their sixth league win on the spin, with Kai Havertz performing at the peak of his powers too.
The Bees, however, have conceded in their last 12 away matches in the league, with six of their last seven wins away from home ending in defeat.
It’s a tumultuous time for Chelsea fans, who are still awaiting news on a new owner following the government’s freezing of Roman Abramovich’s assets.
Final proposals are expected by April 18, with LA Dodgers owner Todd Boehly one of the favourites to buy the club.
Chicago Cubs owners the Ricketts family are also in the running, but fans are set to protest his interest in the club today due to their political alignments in the U.S.
Despite all the news, Chelsea just keep rolling on, and are hitting form at the business end of the season.
While a last-ditch title race might look too far away, the Blues could wrap up third spot in the next few games.
So kick back and enjoy the action, it should be a good’un, and we’ve got you covered throughout the afternoon.
