Former Premier League striker Michael Owen has backed Chelsea to overcome Brentford when the two sides square off on Saturday. The Blues have won their last five games in the Premier League and have closed the gap on league leaders Manchester City to 11 points.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have a game in hand over the Sky Blues and could further reduce the gap to just eight points. It’s not been an easy period for the Blues, who have had several sanctions imposed on them because of Roman Abramovich’s presence.

They will look to continue their impressive run at the expense of Brentford, who are by no means an easy side to play against. Owen believes the Blues will look to find a bit of rhythm ahead of an important fortnight or so where they face Real Madrid in the Champions League. The former forward predicted a 3-0 win for the Blues:

“It’s obviously been a difficult month for Chelsea off the pitch, but on it I’ve been impressed. They keep winning, and defensively they look so solid. That huge clash against Real Madrid Is on the horizon, so they’ll want a good performance here."

“As for Brentford, it’s been a positive few weeks for the club. The win against Burnley was huge and they didn’t play badly in the defeat to Leicester. I think a couple more wins should see them safe. I don’t see them picking anything up here though. Chelsea have been too organised recently, 3-0.”
