Brentford vs Chelsea LIVE: Score as Pontus Jansson own goal and Jorginho penalty give Blues lead – Football.London

Welcome to football.london‘s live coverage of the Carabao Cup quarter-final between Chelsea and Brentford.

The Blues travel across London to the Brentford Community Stadium as they look to progress in one of the five competitions they remain in.

Thomas Tuchel‘s side have defeated Aston Villa and Southampton en route to this stage but required penalties to do so.

The Bees are facing Premier League opposition for the first time after defeating Forest Green 3-1, Oldham 7-0 and Stoke City 2-1.

Chelsea have often rotated their side and included youngsters on the bench for the competition so far and seem set to do so again with the squad having been hit by Covid-19 over the last seven days.

Tuchel hopes to use the tie to rest some players, but with limited resources it may prove difficult to do so.
