Chelsea manager Graham Potter reportedly fielded a mix of World Cup internationals and academy prospects as Brentford were thrashed 5-1 in a private friendly on Tuesday.
The Blues have built solid momentum ahead of the return of the Premier League, with a match against Bournemouth scheduled for December 27.
