The prediction of Brighton and Chelsea comes before the match of the 23rd round of the Premier League. This game will be played on January 18th, at Amex Stadium, England. In this match overview, we bring you betting tips and accurate predictions of results based on the analysis of these two sides.
Brighton vs Chelsea Match Preview and Team News
Brighton could have beaten Crystal Palace on Friday and would have done but for a terrible penalty miss. Albion has now drawn ten of their 20 league games, both scoring and conceding 21 goals. After a strong start to the Premier League season, only two of their last 15 games have been won. The previous seven home league fixtures have seen them win just once, a 2-0 win over Brentford. Each of the last five home Premier League games at the Amex Stadium has had under 2.5 goals scored in them. Neal Maupay is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Enock Mwepu (Hamstring Injury), Lewis Dunk (Knee Injury), and Tudor Baluta (Unknown Injury) aren’t available for Brighton boss Graham Potter. Yves Bissouma is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Chelsea’s hopes of winning the Premier League look all but over. The second-placed side is now 13 points behind leaders Manchester City and really needs to win at ninth-placed Brighton. Chelsea still has a big season ahead of them with an EFL Cup final for starters. Finishing in the top four in the Premier League looks like being their target now after losing 1-0 at the league leaders on Saturday. Chelsea had gone 11 league and cup games without defeat before the weekend loss. They have only won one of their last four away league games but have a strong record against Brighton. Hakim Ziyech plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opposition’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an incredible player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. He should build upon his last season’s performance. Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has not got a full squad to pick from. Andreas Christensen (Coronavirus), Reece James (Hamstring Injury), and Ben Chilwell (Ruptured cruciate ligament) won’t be making appearances.
