14 October 2021 0 By Total Football News


Footage of a number of Chelsea’s stars impressing in training ahead of the club’s meeting with Brentford has come to the fore online.

Bees test

Thomas Tuchel’s men are of course set to return to action this weekend.

On the back of yet another early-season international break, the Blues will make the short trip to the Brentford Community Stadium, for a derby showdown with Thomas Frank’s high-flying Bees.

Chelsea head into proceedings aiming to build on a strong opening to the season, which currently sees the capital giants sitting pretty atop the Premier League table.

Their hosts on Saturday evening, though, will prove no pushovers.

Brentford have emerged as the surprise package of the English top-flight campaign thus far, sitting pretty in 7th with 12 points on the board.

Kante amongst the goals

And, ahead of their first competitive fixture in two weeks, Chelsea have been forced to contend with a series of altogether concerning developments on the personnel front.

Both Romelu Lukaku and Antonio Rudiger picked up fitness issues over the course of the international break.

Thiago Silva, meanwhile, looks altogether unlikely to be available to feature versus Brentford, ahead of a late return from international duty with Brazil.

As such, it goes without saying that Thomas Tuchel will likely be forced into making use of his squad depth in West London in 48 hours’ time.

And, as outlined above, if the latest footage stemming from the club’s training ground is anything to go by, then a number of Chelsea stars are pushing hard to convince their manager of their starting credentials this weekend.

The likes of Hakim Ziyech, N’Golo Kante and Ruben Loftus-Cheek all look in top form, as showcased below:
