Venue: Amex Stadium
Brighton vs Chelsea: Despite his home advantage, Brighton has lost points in six of his last ten games here. With a 100% win record against Chelsea, the hosts have no reason to hope on Wednesday.
Brighton managed to ease the pressure on themselves last week by stopping a four-game winless streak with a victory over Bournemouth at home. It took only three minutes for the hosts to break the deadlock in this final crash, after which they doubled their lead after the restart.
Unfortunately, the home team only has two victories to boast of their last nine PL matches. Currently, they are much closer to falling into the relegation zone than catching Chelsea.
Meanwhile, the Blues have alternated wins and losses in their last four clashes. Their last outing saw them beat an Arsenal team in trouble by a narrow score of 2-1. At home, they were defeated 2-0 by Southampton.
However, the visitors are on a winning streak of two games as visitors at the moment. It should also be mentioned that Frank Lampard’s men are the second best visiting player in the group and are just behind Liverpool.
Brighton, on the other hand, has only reached the top once in his last four games here. The hosts have not yet won one of the four best games at home this season.
To build even more misery, Brighton has admitted defeat in each of his last two meetings with this enemy here. Since the return match of this clash also saw Chelsea score two goals with no response, count on the Blues to avoid making mistakes by finishing a double championship this week.
In addition, Chelsea have scored twenty-four goals on the road so far, which is only three less than the highest score in the group. Tammy Abraham, in particular, has been in the bottom third and is currently the fourth leading scorer in the league with fourteen goals.
Like all your last two h2h meetings here you have also seen more than 2.5 goals in the final scoreboards, hope that the goals are abundant by all means in this one.
