Chelsea will welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday evening. Here are some predictions for Chelsea vs Brighton & Hove Albion, which will kick off at 12:30 AM IST.
With the chance of moving into the top four in the Premier League table, Chelsea will surely bring their A-game. Three points in Chelsea vs Brighton & Hove Albion, and they stand to finish in the top four.
Chelsea may be excited to win and end up in the EPL top four, but tonight, they focus their fight against racism instead.
Tuchel is expected to make a few changes from Chelsea vs Manchester City.
Edouard Mendy, Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz, Marcos Alonso, and Callum Hudson-Odoi are all possible starters now.
Mateo Kovacic and Andreas Christensen missed facing Pep Guardiola’s side due to injury. And it’s likely that both of them miss Tuesday’s match too, because they’re not yet fit.
Thiago Silva played in Saturday’s FA Cup match against the Citizens. However, he too needed substitution due to a back injury. So, the Brazilian is unlikely to play today, meaning Kurt Zouma may start instead.
Chelsea possible starting lineup (3-4-3): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rudiger; Hudson-Odoi, Jorginho, Kante, Alonso; Mount, Havertz, Pulisic
Brighton & Hove Albion:
Tariq Lamptey and Solly March will be unavailable for Brighton due to injury. Florin Andone and Percy Tau are also in doubt, however.
Aaron Connolly has been out with a foot injury. So, the 21-year-old is unlikely to appear, but could return at Stamford Bridge.
Neal Maupay, Danny Welbeck, and Leandro Trossard may start as the final third.
Dan Burn and Adam Webster have both returned to training after injuries. Still, the back three that held a clean sheet against Everton should be retained.
Jakub Moder will likely be keeping his place as a left-sided wing-back.
Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup (3-4-3): Sanchez; White, Dunk, Veltman; Gross, Lallana, Bissouma, Moder; Trossard, Maupay, Welbeck
- Brighton have the ability to make this a difficult game for Chelsea, who didn’t have time to prepare.
- The Seagulls were impressive in their last away match, which was at Old Trafford.,
- However, we still expect Tuchel’s side to win by a slim margin to earn another crucial three points.
