Wonderful overhead kick from Norgaard but Mendy again is equal to a Brentford effort and tips over the bar.

Four minutes of injury time to be played.
It is all Brentford. The ball falls to Jansson four yards out and he looks certain to score but Mendy denied him with a superb block with his head.
A diagonal ball is inadvertently flicked by Sarr towards Ghoddas at the far post but his effort is blocked by Mendy and then Forss squeezes the ball goalwards and Cholobah clears off the line.
Nice dink over the top from Loftus-Cheek but Raya came out of goal to dive at Werner's feet.
So close to a penalty! Cholobah pulled down Toney with the ball in the air, but the Bees striker was just offside so the referee could not point to the spot.
OFF THE POST! Mbeumo hits the post again! Forss managed to poke the ball beyond the Chelsea defence for him and Mendy was beaten but it came back off the post.
Jorgensen's long throw was flicked on by Pinnock and Toney's instinctive shot is parried away by Mendy.
Goddos comes on for Canos for the Bees.
Awful miss! Fine football from Chelsea with Mount playing into Kante and then on to Werner whose shot was blocked and then Lukaku waited for the ball to come down before blazing over the bar - he was then relieved to see he was offside anyway.
Jensen finds Toney in the penalty area but just cannot get the space to shoot and tries a backheel towards Mbeumo, which goes awry.
Onyeka is replaced by Forss for Brentford.
Mount comes on for Kovacic for Chelsea.
Fine ball from Kante towards Werner but Jorgensen got back to intercept the pass.
Toney is aghast not to get a free kick as he falls to the floor under pressure from Chalobah 25 yards from goal in a central area. A very interesting battle between two up-and-coming players.
A corner arrives at Canos on the left and he puts in a dangerous looking centre but Lukaku was there to head clear.
Nice tussle between Cholobah and Toney sees Brentford have a free kick 35 yards from goal they can swing into the danger area.
Chelsea in total control in this half so far.
Lukaku puts in a dangerous cross but Pinnock gets in a clearance in front of Werner.
Brentford get the second half underway...
They don't really deserve to be in front but Chilwell's unerring finish has Thomas Tuchel's side the lead at the break.
GOAL FOR CHELSEA! A fine finish on the half-volley from Chilwell after Azpilicueta's cross towards Lukaku is cleared to the edge of the box by Jansson where the England full back rifled the ball into the top corner.
Mbeumo swings in a corner but Mendy gathers easily.
A good period of play from Chelsea now, Kovacic feeds Werner in the area but the Bees have enough defenders back to stop the ball getting to Lukaku in the centre.
Chalobah plays a ball deep into the Brentford half which Chilwell flicks to Lukaku and he then teed up Werner who misses the target from Chelsea's best chance so far.
Great chance for Mbeumo to carve out a chance when he received the ball in the right hand side of the penalty area but just shot straight at Mendy.
Canos gets a yellow card for complaining about a foul given on Loftus-Cheek by Onyeka.
Kovacic hits a free kick from 25 yarfds which deflects off the outstretched leg of Mbeumo which loops dangerously and lands on the roof of the net.
Loftus-CHeek is felled on the break by Jensen giving Chelsea a free kick 30 yards from the Brentford goal.
DISALLOWED GOAL! Werner races down the left flank and centres for Lukaku to turn home but he was a yard offside.
OFF THE POST! Some pinball in the area and then Mbeumo shoots against the post.
Fine cross from Jorgensen and Toney's header is deflected wide for a corner.
Kovacic goes into the book for fouling Mbeumo on the break.
Lukaku aims a free kick towards goal but never looked like curling enough to hit the target.
Kante raced towards the box but made the wrong move to go inside rather than feed Azpilicueta who was free in the right hand side of the penalty area.
Werner looks dangerous, buoyed by his brace for Germany in midweek.
Onyeka may have to come off after receiving a blow to the head following a collision with Loftus-Cheek.
Lukau does well to win the ball in the Brentford third and then exchanges passes from Kante but cannot squeeze the ball through to Werner for a shooting opportunity.
Lovely slaloming run from Loftus-Cheek to the edge of the Brentford box and he fed the ball inside but Werner could not get a shot at goal.
Chalobah tested Mendy with a header back from 30 yards and the Chelsea keeper had to be quick to clear ahead of Toney.
Chelsea get the game underway...
The new Brentford stadium is rocking to the strains of Hey Jude and we are just about ready to go.
The only change for Brentford from the side which started at West Ham is Mathias Jensen coming in for Shandon Baptiste.
An interesting side from Chelsea, a mix of their first team with reserve players and so a chance to shine for Trevor Chalobah, the reborn Ruben Loftus-Cheek and league debutant at the back Malang Sarr.
Werner partners Lukaku for Chelsea today...
