The English FA Cup is still going on, and yesterday, Arsenal thrashed Sunderland 5 goals to 1 in the first round. The Gunners have made it to the next round. Chelsea could also make it if they beat Brentford tonight.
It's been a while since Chelsea has been playing well, so fans and managers are wondering what the next game will be. Thomas Frank's Brentford is one of the best new teams in the Premier League and could be a threat to the blues today.
A few weeks ago, Chelsea came through a close match against Brentford at Stamford Bridge with the goal difference of 1-0. When Mendy made so many saves to keep a clean sheet, the blues were under a lot of stress that day.
Thomas Tuchel should bench these two players if Chelsea wants to beat Brentford.
There are a lot of people who think that Alonso's bad form is a big reason why the blues aren't doing well in the league. However, Lucas Digne, a left back for Everton, is being looked at by the club to replace Alonso.
2. Loftus-Cheek: I think that the English midfielder has been bad this season, even though he has played a lot of games.
The midfielder, Cheek, hasn't made a lot of goals or set up a lot of chances yet. Not enough: He isn't creative or productive enough to be in Chelsea's first team. Tonight, he should be on the bench.
