Chelsea recovered after a disappointing 2-1 loss to the Wolves in Molineux. The Blues beat the unbeaten Manchester City club 2-0 at Stamford Bridge to beat Pep Guardiola and the company in second place in the Premier League standings. They also made the championship more interesting, which allowed the Spurs to reduce the delay of the new leaders to six, while the Blues are only eight points behind Jurgen Klopp’s troops at the moment.
The team led by Maurizio Sarri will have a great opportunity to win the huge defeats of the reigning champions on Sunday afternoon when he goes to THE AMEX to face Brighton & Hove Albion. It is very beneficial for Chelsea, but surely they will have to work hard to recover the loot this time.

Brighton & Hove Albion vs Chelsea: Prediction
Chris Hughton’s men were in the bottom half of the standings after defeating Burnley 1-0 in Turf Moor. It was the Clarets’ first victory in two months, which only shows Brighton’s disappointing efforts in this matter.
However, seagulls can be hard to find in their own backyard, where they have a good record in this Premier League period. Brighton won 4, tied 2 and lost only 1 of 7 homers of the season. They won three and won one of the last four home games in the league, but it must be said that their opponents were West West, Wolves, Leicester and Crystal Palace.
Chelsea is still a big favorite in the game, but we will be honest and say that it is difficult to find the best way to console the visitor’s victory with 1.44 because Brighton has the shape of the house. Chelsea kept their net unchanged against the support of City and Kepa to keep a clean sheet as a better bet option at 1.90.
