Chelsea on a Roller Coaster

The Blues have been having their ups and downs of late, but this clash could be the turning point for the home side.

They are sitting 10th in the Premier League standings and enter on the back of a heavy defeat to Newcastle. On top of that, they lost Reece James who was red-carded against Newcastle and is suspended for this clash.

A few good results had suggested the Blues were turning the tide under Mauricio Pochettino before their spectacular collapse on Tyneside a week ago. Pochettino admitted that Chelsea’s horror show was their worst game of the season so far, and the Blues are still unable to escape the indifference of mid-table.

Christopher Nkunku is nearing his long-awaited debut for Chelsea but has been ruled out by the club despite training with the team on Friday. Marc Cucurella picked up a milestone fifth yellow card of the campaign and will serve his one-game ban.

On top of that, Wesley Fofana, Lavia, Trevoh Chalobah, Carney Chukwuemeka and Ben Chilwell are all set to miss out again.

Brighton Regained Their Mojo

Brighton could count themselves fortunate not to ship any goals themselves during Thursday’s Europa League tie with AEK Athens. A combination of the Greek giants’ wastefulness and Bart Verbruggen in the Seagulls goal saw the visitors’ clean sheet somehow remain intact.

In the Premier League, they aim to build on a 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest. As Brighton are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, we expect a high-scoring affair.

Lewis Dunk received two yellow cards within a matter of seconds against Nottingham Forest for inexcusably using some choice words toward referee Anthony Taylor, incurring a two-game ban in the process.

Dunk joins Mahmoud Dahoud on the naughty step for the Chelsea clash as the midfielder serves the second of a three-game domestic suspension for his red card against Sheffield United.

Brighton Offering High-Scoring Affairs

De Zerbi’s men will bring a seven-game unbeaten run to Stamford Bridge, including three wins from their last three on the road, and Brighton have scored in 11 games in succession, albeit while also failing to keep a single clean sheet in the 2023-24 Premier League.

This season, Brighton’s matches in the Premier League have been averaging 3.92 goals per game. That’s more than any other side. Roberto Brighton’s away matches have seen more goals with an average of 4.33 per game.

Ahead of the round, Chelsea had collected a league-high average of 3.38 yellow cards per PL game this season. Last season, Brighton won both EPL games against Chelsea with both games going over.

Chelsea is out to prove that their nightmare performance against Newcastle was a blip. It was Pochettino’s first loss by a three-goal margin since losing 3-0 to none other than Brighton in 2019 when he was managing Tottenham.

Entertainment could be in the offing here, especially with the Seagulls’ last two league visits to Stamford Bridge also seeing both goalkeepers beaten.

Questions Of The Day

Which Chelsea player is most likely to record a yellow card?


With Marc Cucurella suspended, Raheem Sterling is next on our list. Chelsea’s forward received a yellow card in each of his previous two EPL games and we expect him once again to be on the ref’s bookings sheet.

Which team is the best bet to score the most goals?


Chelsea has score many goals lately as they look better and better in the attacking third but also Brighton has the weapons to score at least twice on their own.
