The hosts do not have much to fight for but the Blues surely do

Brighton & Hove Albion are in the top half of the Premier League table. After 36 fixtures, the Seagulls have managed to tally 48 points on board which keeps them currently at 10th. After facing Chelsea at the Falmer Stadium, next, they will be inviting Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United for their final league game.

Chelsea are ranked seventh in the English first tier after a 3-2 away win against Nottingham Forest. Mauricio Pochettino’s men are seemingly giving a final push to their season to land a European competition qualification spot. With Newcastle United above the Blues and tied with them on points, Chelsea will want nothing but a win here.

Form

Brighton (in all competitions): D-W-L-L-D

Players to Watch

Bart Verbruggen (Brighton)

The Magpies are a very tough opposition to face. But Brighton’s goalkeeper Bart Verbruggen stood his ground in the 1-1 draw and made seven saves which might have ended in the back of the net. The 21-year-old had arrived at the start of the campaign and has so far made 20 PL appearances. In those outings, Verbruggen just conceded 26 goals while also ensuring four clean sheets.

Cole Palmer (Chelsea)

In the 3-2 win over the Tricky Trees, Cole Palmer played the full 90 minutes. He may have failed to find the back of the net but did make an assist. Palmer now has scored 21 goals and has made 10 assists in the division.

Match Facts

  • Tip 3: Match to end in a draw – +300 with Bet365

Injury & Team News

There are fitness concerns over Jan Paul van Hecke, Ansu Fati and Joao Pedro. The hosts are likely to use them sparingly here even though they might pass fit to play.

Right-back Reece James did feature in the last match after coming on as a substitute. But James is likely to not start here as well to get him rolling with some precautionary measure after coming back from injury. Big 2023 summer signing Christopher Nkunku is still building his fitness even though he also came off the bench in the last game.

Head to Head

Total Matches – 22

Brighton wins – 3

Chelsea wins – 14

Draws – 5

Predicted Lineup

Brighton predicted lineup (4-2-3-1):

Verbruggen (GK); Lamptey, Webster, Dunk, Igor; Groß, Gilmour; Buonanotte, Enciso, Adingra; Welbeck

Chelsea predicted lineup (4-2-3-1):

Petrović (GK); Chalobah, Silva, Badiashile, Cucurella; Caicedo, Gallagher; Madueke, Palmer, Mudryk; Jackson

Match Prediction for Brighton vs Chelsea

Roberto De Zerbi’s side surely had a great 1-1 result last game against Newcastle United. In this one also, we expect them to trouble Chelsea. But with few good players coming back for the visitors from injuries and the desire to finish in the top six, a win probably will end up in the bag of the away team.

Prediction: Brighton 1-2 Chelsea
