As Mauricio Pochettino considers his options, the team braces for a challenging encounter at Stamford Bridge.
Here’s a comprehensive look at the current situation and what to expect from the upcoming game.
Armando Broja, despite being present in first-team training, remains sidelined for Brentford’s visit to Stamford Bridge. Chelsea has placed him on the injury list alongside several other long-term casualties, including Christopher Nkunku, Ben Chilwell, Romeo Lavia, Trevoh Chalobah, Wesley Fofana, and Carney Chukwuemeka.
The club has cited an “irritation” in Broja’s knee as the reason for his exclusion.

Reece James, the Chelsea captain, is anticipated to start from the bench as he continues to recover. Pochettino emphasized that while James is progressing well and nearing a return, he will not be in the starting lineup for the upcoming game.

Based on recent insights and expectations, the predicted Chelsea XI for the match includes Robert Sanchez in goal, Malo Gusto at right-back, Thiago Silva, Levi Colwill, and Marc Cucurella in the backline.
The midfield trio comprises Moises Caicedo, Enzo Fernandez, and Conor Gallagher, with Raheem Sterling, Cole Palmer, and Mykhailo Mudryk leading the attack.
