BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION

Chelsea vs

On Tuesday night, Chelsea host Brighton at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League, with the hosts looking to stay in the top four. 

CHELSEA

The Blues head into this game having beaten Man City in the FA Cup semi-final at the weekend. In the league, they beat Crystal Palace 4-1 last time out and now sit fifth in the table, but beating Brighton would put them back in the top four.

Thomas Tuchel has had a fantastic start to life at Chelsea. He was initially brought in to steady the ship and set them up for next season but is now looking at potentially two finals. Chelsea need to secure the Champions League for next season and it is in their hands.

Against Brighton, Chelsea will be looking for a repeat of their performance in the 3-1 win over The Seagulls early on in the season. Chelsea should dominate the game and will may even make some changes from Saturdays line up against City.

BRIGHTON

The Seagulls are currently 16th in the league, six points clear of relegation. They have won just two games in their last six, drawing 0-0 with Everton in their previous fixture.

Graham Potters team look to play attacking football and keep the ball. This is seen as the right way to play the game, but only when you have the players to do so. If he can keep Brighton up and invest in some betters options they could start climbing the table.

The away side have a six-point gap and anything from this game would be a huge advantage. Brighton will play a lot of the game without the ball so it’ll be key they are effective on it!

Team News

Chelsea have two doubts in Kovacic and Christennsen.

March and Lamptey are still unavailable. Tau, Connolly and Andonne are doubts.

Match Prediction

This should be a game in which Chelsea control from start to finish and get themselves three points closer to the Champions League next season.

Odds 6/10
