Chelsea dealt blow as defender set to miss out vs Brentford
Chelsea has been in brilliant performance since the start of the 21/22 campaign.
Stamford Bridge side has gotten only 2 losses and one draw across all competitions so far.
The Blues also have the joint-best defense in the Premier League so far this season projects
And, with Liverpool drawing their last two matches
Chelsea have now been able to overtake the Reds and stay on top of the Premier League table
Chelsea’s first game back after the break will be a trip to newly-promoted Brentford on Saturday the 16th of October.
Ahead of the game, Thomas Tuchel has confirmed already that one player will be missing.
That player is Thiago Silva, who has been called up to the Brazil national side for their games this month:
“He will go and then he will play for Brazil, and then he will come back on the match-day versus Brentford”.
“This is the life of international breaks in 2021. Like it or not, what can I do? If they call him, he needs to go.”
Brazil’s final game of the international break takes place in the early hours of Friday the 15th of October
so it is easy to see why Silva will not be featuring vs Brentford on the 16th.
