Goals on the cards as Chelsea head to Brentford
Brentford and Chelsea are both dealing with a number of injury and coronavirus issues ahead of their EFL Cup quarter-final meeting on Wednesday.

Chelsea are without Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi due to Covid-19, while Kai Havertz, Jorginho and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are all considered doubtful.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel may opt to rotate his side regardless ahead of the busy festive schedule, assuming all those games go ahead, with the Premier League clearly the priority for the visitors.

Brentford have five players definitely out but Mathias Jorgensen is close to making a return, although this fixture may come too soon for the defender after a five-game absence.

Both teams to score looks a strong option
Chelsea won 1-0 at Brentford when these sides met in the Premier League in October but the Bees were arguably unlucky not to get anything out of the game. Thomas Frank’s side managed 17 attempts in total to Chelsea’s five, and the Stamford Bridge club scored with their only effort on target.

With both teams missing a few key players and possibly likely to rotate, we could see an open game on Wednesday and both teams to score looks a strong play here.

There have been goals at both ends in seven of Brentford’s nine games since their previous meeting with Chelsea and they have only failed to score in one of those. The Bees have also scored in all four of their matches at the Brentford Community Stadium since they drew a blank against their opponents on Wednesday.

Both teams to score was a winning bet in seven consecutive games for Chelsea before they drew a blank at Wolves over the weekend, and they conceded 11 goals in total during that run.

Chelsea are the favourites to win but they have had to settle for draws in three of their last four outings, and as they have a few absentees and may rotate there is a real chance Brentford can pull off an upset. It may pay to be bold in the correct score market and a 2-2 draw has a chance, as Chelsea have conceded seven goals in total in their last three trips and Brentford have scored twice in each of their last two games.
