Chelsea vs Brighton Predictions

  • Six of Brighton’s last seven Premier League away games have featured fewer than three goals.
  • Brighton’s league matches this season have averaged just 1.94 goals per game.
  • Chelsea have won six of their eight Premier League meetings with Brighton, conceding just three goals.

Blues rediscover winning touch

Chelsea managed to get back to winning ways in the Premier League on Boxing Day and a home match against Brighton looks a great fixture for them to continue the reignition of their title challenge after a December slump.

The Blues have still lost just one of their last 19 matches in all competitions but draws against Everton and Wolves earlier this month have put them on the back foot, leaving them six points adrift of Manchester City as we approach the end of 2021.

Seagulls struggling for goals

Brighton also rediscovered their form on Boxing Day, with a 2-0 triumph over Brighton ending a run of 12 games without a win and pushing them into ninth in the table. However, they haven’t won an away game since September and have never won a top flight meeting with Chelsea.

Given the Seagulls’ performances over the last few seasons, it will come as no surprise that their main issue lies at the sharp end of the pitch. They have scored just 16 league goals this season but have the second-best defensive record outside the top three, with their games averaging a meagre 1.94 goals per game.

Goals at a premium at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea haven’t been scoring quite so freely of late either and the signs point towards a relatively low-scoring affair on Wednesday. The hosts have seen fewer than three goals in three of their last four matches and in four of their last six at home, while six of Brighton’s last seven away games have yielded fewer than three goals.

Add that to the fact that three of the last four meetings between these sides have also seen under 2.5 goals land and that looks a solid bet for Wednesday, along with a 2-0 Chelsea win considering they have won six of their eight Premier League meetings with Brighton.

Chelsea predicted lineup: Mendy; Chalobah, Christensen, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Hudson-Odoi; Ziyech, Mount; Pulisic

Brighton predicted lineup: Sanchez; Lamptey, Webster, Burn, Cucurella; Allister, Mwepu, Moder; March, Welbeck, Maupay

  • Seven of Brighton’s last nine Premier League road games have stayed under 2.5 goals
  • Chelsea are unbeaten in nine of their last ten Premier League home games
