This is the Chelsea predicted lineup for their Premier League clash with Brentford for the early kick-off on October 28. The Blues are looking to build on a strong run of results that has seen them stay undefeated in their past four outings.

How Chelsea Have Lined Up Recently
The starting 11 has been quite stable in recent weeks barring injuries forcing changes. Levi Colwill, Axel Disasi, Thiago Silva, and Marc Cucurella has been the preferred back four ahead of Robert Sanchez in the absence of Malo Gusto.

The deeper midfield pairing has been Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo with Conor Gallagher, Cole Palmer, Mykhailo Murdyk, and Raheem Sterling starting in some configurations of an attacking midfield trio. The striker spot has been given to Nicolas Jackson and Armando Broja, as well as Palmer in recent weeks due to injuries and suspensions.

Chelsea Recent Form and Tactics
The base shape for Mauricio Pochettino continues to be a 4-2-3-1 although it is quite fluid, as many tactics tend to be in modern football. Results have been promising with a 2-2 draw with Arsenal marking a surprisingly good outcome off the back of three wins in a row before the international break.

After some growing pains the goals have started coming for Pochettino with his team hitting the net eight times in their last three outings.

Chelsea Injuries to Consider
An injury update provided by the club lists seven players as unavailable. Christopher Nkunku, Armando Broja, Trevoh Chalobah, Ben Chilwell, Carney Chukwuemeka, Wesley Fofana, and Romeo Lavia are all sidelined and at different stages of their recovery.

While he is fit, Reece James has been deemed not ready to start by the manager and will feature on the bench.
