CHELSEA take on London rivals Brentford in their Carabao Cup quarter-final clash this week.

The Blues drew 0-0 with Wolves in the Premier League last weekend, and that came days after a disappointing 1-1 draw with Everton too.

Brentford, meanwhile, haven't played since a 2-1 win over Watford nearly two weeks ago, as their game with Man Utd last week was postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak in the Red Devils squad.

As things stand, Carabao Cup clashes will be going ahead, as teams look to avoid a fixture pile-up in 2022.

What time does Brentford vs Chelsea kick-off?

  • Chelsea's clash with Brentford will get underway from 7.45pm UK time on Wednesday, December 22.
  • The game will take place at the Brentford Community Stadium in London.
  • At this moment, the game is still set to go ahead and fans will attend, despite rising coronavirus cases in the EFL and Premier League.

What channel is it and can it be live streamed?

  • Unfortunately for viewers in the UK, Brentford vs Chelsea will NOT be shown on TV.
  • The game is on at the same time as other EFL Carabao Cup games Liverpool vs Leicester and Tottenham vs West Ham.
  • And it's Spurs' clash with the Hammers that has been chosen for Sky Sports coverage.
  • Listen live to the match on talkSPORT.

Team news

Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Jorginho and Callum Hudson-Odoi are all out of the clash as they have tested positive for coronavirus.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek could miss the game too as he has a knock, while Kai Havertz is out with an illness of his own.

Trevor Chalobah limped off in the clash against Wolves at the weekend and also isn't likely to be available.

Brentford will still be without Ivan Toney, but it's unclear how many positive coronavirus cases there are among their squad.
