With so many London sides in the Premier League now, we have another London derby to look forward to in England’s top flight once more this Wednesday evening when Brentford and Chelsea clash at the Brentford Community Stadium with the Blues looking like a new, fresh outfit under Graham Potter.
Potter’s start to life in London has been nothing short of fantastic.
The former Brighton & Hove Albion head coach has had a fantastic start to life in London, and the Englishman has been on a sensational unbeaten run so far in his first six games in charge, winning in both the Champions League and the Premier League in stunning style.
The club registered a 2-0 win over AC Milan last time out in the Champions League at the San Siro which came not long after defeating the Serie A champions back at Stamford Bridge.
At the same time, Potter had led his men to excellent wins in the Premier League also smashed Wolves 3-0, Aston Villa 2-0, and edged past Crystal Palace 2-1 in yet another London derby for the club.
In fact, despite a 1-1 draw against RB Salzburg back in early September, Potter has seen his side concede only once since then as they have now kept a fantastic five clean sheets in a row.
At the same time, only Newcastle United and Liverpool have gone on equally impressive unbeaten runs in the Premier League in this time.
Chelsea’s own Mason Mount was the main man in the recent 2-0 win over Villa, as he has now added two goals to his two assists under the new head coach following on from scoring both goals, which included a stunning free kick.
Brentford, however, remain in ninth and with a lot to shout about in the first 10 games of the Premier League season for them.
The club have begun the season even better than their impressive debut campaign in 2021/22, as they are now just two points behind sixth-placed Newcastle United after beating Brighton & Hove Albion.
Ivan Toney was the hero once again for the Bees in their recent win, as he scored twice to now make it eight goals for him in the Premier League already after a sensational flicked goal from close range and another calmly-taken penalty.
