Brentford boss Thomas Frank has given his verdict on Chelsea ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and Brentford at Stamford Bridge.

“I think we all know that Chelsea have been struggling a little bit this season,” Frank said on Tuesday.

“[They have] very good players. I know they haven’t won, but I think clearly in the four games [Lampard] has been in charge they are playing with bigger energy, more intensity on the eye and also on the numbers.

“It’s top players, and at the end of the day they bought players for £600 million in the past two transfer windows and they haven’t forgotten how to play football.

“Sometimes it takes one moment. Now they had a good week to work with them at Stamford Bridge. They are clear favourites of course. They should be. But we hope and believe that we can do something.”
