(Football video, football results, Chelsea – Brentford, round 31 of the English Premier League) “The Blues” had a beautiful opening goal but that was only the beginning of a tragedy in the second half.
Entering the West London derby to welcome Brentford at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea owning 6 consecutive victories on all fronts are rated higher than many neighboring opponents. However, the defending champion Champions League entered the game quite erroneously before the “swarm of bees”.

In the 6th minute, Edouard Mendy made a mistake when he passed the ball to Ivan Toney’s foot but the England striker of Brentford failed to take advantage. The yellow jerseys then had another chance to score, but Toney’s shot was blocked by Chelsea’s Senegal goalkeeper. After the first few minutes of playing poorly, Chelsea gradually regained the game.
However, the finishing phases of Mason Mount, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Antonio Rudiger or Hakim Ziyech could not be converted into goals, causing “The Blues” to accept being stopped by neighboring opponents when entering the break in the middle of the match. .
Unpredictable developments really only came in the second half. 48 minutes, centre-back Antonio Rudiger surged forward and had a beautiful long shot that grazed the edge of the post before shaking the net of Brentford. But Chelsea’s opening advantage lasted only 2 minutes when they were conceded by Vitaly Janelt after a good counter-attack from the visitors.
In the 54th minute, from Bryan Mbeumo’s cross, Christian Eriksen accurately cut the cross to give Brentford a 2-1 lead against “The Blues”. On the momentum of excitement, coach Thomas Frank’s army had a third goal when German midfielder Janelt completed his own double in the 60th minute with a delicate ball to eliminate goalkeeper Mendy.

In the 65th minute, Kai Havertz hit the net for Brentford, but this Chelsea goal was disallowed because the player wearing their number 29 shirt let the ball touch his hand. The tragedy of the home team continued until Rudiger’s mistake to clear the ball at the end of the game helped substitute Yoane Wissa to seal a 4-1 victory for Brentford.
Losing a shocking reverse at Stamford Bridge at home to the opponent in the West London derby, Chelsea broke the circuit for 6 consecutive matches and won in all competitions. Coach Thomas Tuchel’s teachers and students had a bad psychological preparation before welcoming Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final at 2 am on 7/4 (Vietnam time) also in London.
