Chelsea return to league action with a disappointing draw against bogey team Brentford

The Brentford game was a return to league action for Chelsea for the first time in two weeks, having drawn against Manchester City at the Etihad in their last league game on February 17.

The Blues overcame a resilient Leeds United side thanks to a late winner in their most recent match in the FA Cup fifth round, which was preceded by a 1-0 loss to Liverpool in the EFL Cup final.

Brentford who had picked up just two wins in their last 12 games, have always been a tough opponent for the Blues since their promotion. The Bees claimed a win at Stamford Bridge in the reverse fixture earlier this season and came close to doing the double over them on Saturday.

The Blues are now winless in their last five games against Brentford, making them Chelsea's bogey team in the Premier League. The Bees have won and drawn three of their last five fixtures against Chelsea.

Chelsea will now turn their attention to next Monday, when they will host Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge.
