Brentford vs Chelsea: Ajokeonifaari previews the Carabao Cup quarter-final clash between Brentford and Chelsea, which will take place later today. The quarter-final stages kicked off with Arsenal yesterday.
Later tonight, as expected, it will be another London showdown between two teams from the same neighborhood who will be vying to proceed to the next round of the competition.
Brentford against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup is another encounter that both clubs will play after their English Premier League games over the weekend, which were not easy for them.
With everything looking good heading into next year, a win today might give them the confidence to take on the other games scheduled for the new year, as well as the transfer window.

The Carabao Cup encounter between Brentford and Chelsea could provide Thomas Tuchel with an opportunity to bounce back after his side’s disappointing goalless draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend.
The visitors are coming off a 2-1 win against Watford, and their last two games have been postponed due to weather and a coronavirus outbreak that has affected many teams in the League.
Brentford beat Stoke City 2-1 to advance to the quarter-finals, while Chelsea drew 1-1 with Southampton before winning on penalties thanks to Kepa Arrizabalaga’s amazing saves.
