[NEWS] Team News: Chelsea vs Brighton

European Super League club Chelsea FC (sorry, you knew we had
to open with that today) resume their 20/21 Premier League
campaign on Tuesday night when they host Brighton & Hove
Albion. And with the advent of the Super League , perhaps Brighton
will become a regular in the Champions League moving forward.

Can’t wait until 2027, when the Seagulls beat Real Sociedad in the
UCL final. But that’s enough jokes about today’s biggest news
(can’t agree any more strongly with everything that Gary Neville
has said about it), as we have a PL fixture to preview.

Team News for Both Sides

Brighton come into this one with some distance from the relegation
zone, but they haven’t clinched safety yet. They’ll be motivated for
sure, as will Chelsea, who will move back into the top four with a
draw or better.

Thomas Tuchel will be dealing with three injury doubts here:
midfielder Mateo Kovacic (thigh), central defender Thiago Silva
(back) and fellow centreback Andreas Christensen (hamstring).

As for Brighton, they also have a trio of players that face late
fitness tests: Aaron Connolly (back), Florin Andone (knee) and
Percy Tau (match fitness issues). Tariq Lamptey (thigh) and Solly
March (knee) are set to miss out.

Prediction: Chelsea 2, Brighton 1

Massive workload for Chelsea as they’re still alive in two cup
competitions while also fighting for top four in the league. They
have a big money, massively deep squad though to stick it out and
get the W.
