Chelsea vs Brighton Preview and Livestream

Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea looked to be the in-form team early in the campaign and with the addition of the supposed ‘missing piece’ in the form of Romelu Lukaku, they were set to seriously challenge on all fronts. However, the Belgian has faded away since and so have Chelsea, sitting a disappointing 10 points off top spot in the league at the midway point of the season. A lot of close results have not gone the way of the Blues in recent times. The loss of key players to injury and COVID has dealt further blows to their hopes. A Champions League place now looks the most likely aspiration for the Blues this campaign.

Brighton, on the other hand, have had a relatively impressive campaign so far. Sitting pretty in the top half, Graham Potter’s men have played some smooth football in almost all their games. Chelsea will be a big scalp if they do manage to beat the Blues and will surely give them even more confidence for a surprise European push.
