Chelsea vs Brighton Match Preview and Team News
After being held to a draw by Everton and Wolves in the run-up to Christmas, Chelsea had to come from behind to win 3-1 at Aston Villa. Jorginho canceled out a Reece James own goal with a penalty before Romelu Lukaku came off the bench at halftime and put the Blues in front. The powerful forward, who has been blighted by an ankle injury and then Covid-19, netted his first Premier League goal since September. Lukaku also won the stoppage-time spot-kick, which allowed Jorginho to make sure of victory. In their last six games, Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea has managed to score a total of 12 times, with that being an average number of goals scored per match equal to 2. 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. N’Golo Kante is one of the best midfielders in the world, all praise for him.
Brighton had gone 11 top-flight fixtures without a win before beating Brentford 2-0, with Leandro Trossard and Neal Maupay scoring stunners. Two superb saves from goalkeeper Robert Sanchez and a brilliant goal-line clearance from Marc Cucurella helped end a barren run dating back to September 19. Victory for Brighton lifted them up to a very respectable ninth position, three points above the Bees. Influential forward Trossard did suffer a slight hamstring strain, though, and will be a big loss if unable to recover in time for this tough test. In 6 of the previous six clashes featuring Brighton & Hove Albion, a relatively low number of goals have been hit between them and their opponents. The overall average number of goals per game in that spell comes to a meager 1.5. 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 selector for the starting lineup.
