Chelsea face Brentford in the Premier League and the confirmed team news is in from Stamford Bridge.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are looking to continue the momentum they have started to build in recent weeks which has seen them go four games unbeaten in all competitions.
Chelsea are starting to find their feet under the Argentine and beginning to convert their chances to turn possession and domination into goals.
Brentford claimed a 3-0 win over Burnley last time out to end a run of eight games in all competitions (after 90 minutes) without victory.
Should Chelsea get a penalty against the Bees, Pochettino has confirmed Cole Palmer is likely to step up despite there not being a designated penalty taker.
“Look, there are few players that can take a penalty, it is about their feelings,” revealed Pochettino pre-match. “We are a coaching staff that we give them the possibility to decide on the pitch. It’s not only one player, or we can say ‘okay, this player is going to be in charge’ because it is about the feelings inside.
“I think Cole, at the moment was great in the two penalties he has taken and of course after a conversation with Raheem or Nicolas Jackson or who was on the pitch to discuss who is more confident to take the penalty. I am happy with the decision.”
The Premier League clash will get underway at 12.30pm BST and will be available to watch live on TNT Sports.
