Brentford star leads Malmo’s supporters to Chelsea clash days after facing them

Brentford defender Pontus Jansson was snapped leading some of the Malmo supporters towards Stamford Bridge ahead of the club’s encounter with Chelsea.

Jansson featured in the newly-promoted side’s loss to the Blues over the weekend, a game in which his club lost 1-0 but were subsequently praised for their gumption in the second half.

The Bees made it hard for Chelsea, with Edouard Mendy pulling out a superb man-of-the-match display to snub out Thomas Frank's men from equalising.

Only a matter of days later and it looks as though the former Leeds United defender is doing his best to ignite some form of rivalry with his latest actions before the European encounter, gelling with opposition fans of his former club on enemy territory.

The 30-year-old was snapped mingling with the travelling fans outside the stadium, with the Malmo official Twitter account even picking it up.

"You are with us in Europe again! And @PJansson5 leads us to Stamford Bridge," they tweeted.

Jansson started his professional career with the club, playing 128 games from 2009–2014.

The match turned out to be a comfortable victory for the reigning Champions League title holders. Jorginho scored two penalties while Kai Havertz and Andreas Christensen also got on the scoresheet as Chelsea saw off their opponents 4-0 at home.

The win sees Chelsea go to second spot in their group – having won two and lost one of their opening three games.

Ahead of Thomas Tuchel’s men are Juventus on nine points, who have won all three of their first few games.

Following the rout of Jon Dahl Tomasson’s side, the German boss, 48, said he was happy with the way his players performed – right up until they got their fourth goal on 48 minutes.

"We made it go very well because we played with huge intensity, a lot of ball wins,” he said via BT Sport.

“We demanded this from us, we demanded the three points from us. But we played an excellent game until it was 4-0."

"We are very happy, but in three days it’s the next match. It was a good game, but we demand that from us."

Chelsea's next game in Europe is a trip to Sweden where they will face Malmo once again on November 2.
