Вступление: Chelsea have beaten Brighton in five of their previous six head-to-head matches. In four of Brighton's last five Premier League games, more than two have been scored per game. Over 2.5 total has played in Chelsea's last seven away games. Brighton have conceded at home in nine of their last ten games. Brighton have scored no more goals in nine of ten previous home games. Chelsea have scored 16 of their last 18 away goals. Chelsea have played both-to-score in six of their previous seven away matches. Chelsea have scored more away goals in six of their last seven Premier League games.
However, Brighton's line-up does not allow counting on anything more than the struggle for registration. The team was not active in the transfer market. The club's management managed to get an experienced Adam Lallana. But the loss of the "Seagulls" is serious. Aaron Muya, who was one of the team leaders, left to compete in the Chinese Championship.
In the last championship Graham Potter's wards did not look excellent in their home arena. In their previous nine games, Brighton have beaten only Arsenal at home (2:1). Let's note the low performance of the "Seagulls" in home matches. For the entire past championship, they managed to score at home with only 20 goals. Only Norwich and Crystal Palace had worse performances.
Christian Walton, Florin Andone and Jos? Izquierdo are now in the Brighton infirmary. Questionable is the presence of Aaron Connolly.
At the end of last season, Chelsea did not look their best on the road. In the last nine matches, they managed to beat only Aston Villa (2:1) and Crystal Palace (3:2).
Ben Chilwell, Billy Gilmore, Thiago Silva and Hakim Ziyech will not be able to help in the upcoming match due to injuries. Disqualification will serve Mateo Kovacic. Questionable is the presence of Rhys James.
