Chelsea v Brighton & Hove Albion Match Preview & Best Odds

 

Chelsea will look to put their Premier League struggles to one side this evening when they entertain Brighton & Hove Albion at Stamford Bridge in the League (Carabao) Cup. 

Chelsea’s season hasn’t started too well, the Blues falling down to 14th position in the Premier League table on the back of a dismal run which continued at the weekend with a 1-0 defeat at home to Aston Villa. Thus far the West London outfit have managed just a single win from their six league outings and they will look for some respite from these league concerns when they entertain Brighton & Hove Albion in the League Cup tonight.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have suffered three defeats whilst in Premier League action this term and they have found the back of the net a mere five times thus far, only Luton Town and Burnley having scored less this season. As things stand, the Blues sit just four points above the foot of the Premier League table with ten points separating them from tonight’s opponents and it’s hard to envisage them grinding out a positive result this evening.

In complete contrast, Brighton have been impressive this season thus far, the Seagulls winning all-but-one of their opening six league outings and sitting one point behind second-placed Liverpool and three behind leaders Manchester City. With eighteen goals to their name, Brighton are the top goalscorers in the Premier League so far and as such, confidence will be sky-high ahead of their midweek trip to the capital.

Indeed, when coupling Chelsea’s dreadful defensive record with the excellent scoring form of Brighton, it’s hard to see past another defeat for Pochettino’s men on home soil. Indeed with the Seagulls scoring 20 goals in their seven competitive outings this term, we believe that the south-coast side will bag themselves another high-scoring win in West London.
