Brighton vs Chelsea: Our top betting tips

Graham Potter makes his return to the Am Ex this weekend as he looks to move his Chelsea side into the Premier League's top four. Brighton have a new manager these days but are yet to win a game under his tutelage and the Seagulls faithful would love nothing more than that first victory to come against Potter's Chelsea side this weekend.

Chelsea to Win

Chelsea haven't lost any of their last ten competitive matches against Brighton, picking up six wins and four draws. The Seagulls haven't won any of their five matches since Graham Potter was replaced and have lost three of those fixtures. Chelsea, on the other hand, have won four and drawn two of their last six outings in all competitions, so you can see just why we're backing an away win this weekend.

Under 2.5 Goals

There is a good chance that this game will end up being a low-scoring affair as five of the last six competitive and non-competitive meetings between these two clubs have ended with under 2.5 goals being scored. Three of Brighton's last four matches along with four of Chelsea's last five outings have also witnessed fewer than three goals scored, adding further weight to our prediction.

Potter looking to cast a spell over former employers

Brighton made the unenviable trip to the Etihad Stadium last weekend where they came up against a Man City side in excellent form. The goal-machine that is Erling Haaland scored twice to put the home side 2-0 up at the break and despite Trossard firing in from range to make it 201, City went up the other end of the pitch in the 75th-minute to score a third and final goal via De Bruyne to wrap up a home win.

Brighton Predicted lineup – Sánchez, Webster, Veltman, Dunk, Lallana, Groß, March, Mac Allister, Caicedo, Welbeck & Trossard

Chelsea would have been expecting a tough game at home against a Man Utd side that they had drawn a lot of games with over the last few seasons. Once again the match would end all square but Chelsea will have been very disappointed not to have secured all 3pts. When the game looked to be heading for a goalless draw, Chelsea were awarded a penalty which Jorginho converted. With just 3-minute of the 90 remaining you would have thought that Chelsea were going to hold on and win the match but instead, deep into stoppage-time Man Utd scrapped an equaliser through Casemiro to pinch a point at the death.

Chelsea Predicted lineup – Kepa, Silva, Azpilicueta, Cucurella, Chalobah, Chilwell, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Mount, Aubameyang & Sterling

Team News

Brighton: Jakub Moder, Kaoru Mitoma, Adam Lallana, Joel Veltman and Enock Mwepu all have injuries that could keep them out of this weekend's clash.

Chelsea: N'Golo Kante, Kalidou Koulibaly, Wesley Fofana and Reece James are all doubts for the trip to the south coast.
