Chelsea's poor run of form under the leadership of Frank Lampard continued as they suffered their fifth consecutive defeat, this time against Brentford at Stamford Bridge. Despite dominating possession in the first half, Chelsea struggled to create any clear-cut chances, and Brentford took the lead midway through the half when a Mathias Jorgensen flick from a corner hit Cesar Azpilicueta on his shoulder and deflected into the back of the net. Chelsea fans expressed their disappointment as the half-time whistle blew, but the Blues improved in the second half with the introduction of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. However, they failed to find an equalizer, and Bryan Mbeumo secured a 2-0 victory for Brentford with a late strike. This defeat leaves Chelsea in 11th place in the Premier League table, six points behind Fulham in 10th and eight points behind Brentford, who move up to ninth.
