The Blues also boosted their momentum with a 2-1 win over Lille in the Champions League and a 2-0 win over Middlesbrough in the FA Cup quarter finals.

Brentford has only won two of its past five games (3-1 against Norwich and 2-0 at home against Leeds United) and is presently ranked 15th in the Premier League with 30 points after 30 games.

?“When we played them in the first match, it was maybe one of the worst moments to play them because they were absolutely flying. They were full of positivity and belief, we played a very good match and struggled in the last 18 minutes like crazy and we needed to defend and a lot of luck to escape with three points. Then we had another match at Brentford in the Carabao Cup, we played very very well and learned from our first match. That’s the challenge for tomorrow. They played for a long period of the season in a back five, 5-3-2, but they change in the last matches to a 4-3-3. Let’s see what they do.” – Tuchel on Brentford
