Can Brighton find a way through Chelsea's resolute defence?

Chelsea are flying right now, through to the semi-finals of the Champions League and the final of the FA Cup, but they currently sit outside the top four and need a strong finish to the Premier League campaign if they are to replace West Ham or Leicester who sit above them along with the two Manchester clubs. The hosts are in decent form heading into Tuesday's clash and will be expected to beat Brighton. Kovacic, Christensen and Silva are all injury concerns for the hosts and late fitness tests are expected to be handed out to all three players.

Brighton sit 6pts above the relegation zone as things stand. but a win against Chelsea would take them onto 36pts and would take them very close to securing their Premier League status for another season. The Seagulls have a habit of going through bad patches of form and they will be praying that this won't be the case in the business end of the campaign. The visitors will be without Lamptey and March for the trip to London through injury, while there remain doubts over Andone, Connolly and Tau as well.
