Double injury boost for Brentford ahead of Chelsea encounter

Brentford have been handed a massive injury boost with the return of duo Kristoffer Ajer and Vitaly Janelt ahead of the Chelsea tie. 

Ajer and Janelt missed Brentford's 2-1 victory over West Ham United prior to the international break but have since returned to training. 

"All the internationals came back well which is good "Shandon Baptiste dislocated his shoulder and is out. Kristoffer Ajer and Vitaly Janelt should be available," said Brentford coach Thomas Frank. 

However, Shandon Baptiste suffered a dislocated shoulder against the Hammers and will miss out.

On facing Chelsea 

"They are a team with top quality, world-class players in every position. They have one of the best managers in the world in Thomas Tuchel. I don’t think there is a weak spot. We love that challenge and we can’t wait for it"

On mentality

"We are not going out there to put in a nice performance, do well, and everyone likes Brentford. We are going out there to try to win"
