Comments:

League position: 7th Brentford failed to score for the fourth time in their last 18 games in all competitions. The Bees had avoided defeat in their three previous London derbies in the Premier League. They had now lost two of their last 20 league games (won nine).

Comments:

League position: 1st Chelsea became the first-ever team to win seven consecutive away London derbies in the Football League and Premier League. The Blues had now kept a clean sheet in seven of their last 13 away games in the Premier League (conceded seven goals). Ben Chilwell had now scored in each of his last three games for club and country.
