Brentford v Chelsea, Premier League: live blog; strong points
We continue to rekindle our pseudo-rivalry with one of our closest west London neighbors as we make the short journey to Brentford this evening. Bees can be a docile intermediate table outfit, unless you anger them and they repeatedly sting you.
With the various injury and fitness issues, Potter opted to spin lightly while switching to what looks like a back-four. Armando Broja gets his first start ahead!
