There was no indication that Chelsea would lose this match. The post-match stats, which mostly favor Thomas Tuchel’s team, don’t show that either. But Brentford did not give the opponents a chance, taking advantage of the best goalkeeper situations. The players and fans of this club celebrated their last victory over Chelsea in February 1939.

On Saturday, fans waited for goals to be scored in the second half. Chelsea was the first to score. The kicker was Antonio Rudiger, who beat the opposing goalkeeper in the 48th minute. Thomas Tuchel’s team did not enjoy the lead for a long time, as Vitaly Janelt equalized the match after two minutes. In the 54th minute, Christian Eriksen scored 2: 1, in the 60th minute Janette again entered the list of scorers. Yuan Wesa scored the last goal three minutes before the end of the match.
Right after his win on Brentford’s social media, there was a post making fun of Chelsea. “Are we the world champions now?” – We read on Twitter.
The reference to world champions is not accidental. A year ago, Chelsea celebrated winning the Champions League, then defeated Villarreal in the European Super Cup in August, and in February of this year won the Club World Cup. However, the past few weeks have been very difficult for the club. This is due to the sanctions imposed by the United Kingdom on Chelsea. The club was subject to restrictions because its owner is Roman Abramovich, a Russian oligarch. The British authorities decided to take this step to punish Russia for attacking Ukraine by the armed forces.
