Team News

After the win at Wrexham, Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to play a few more of his star-studded names.

Christopher Nkunku had a big impact on his debut, bagging a goal and having a generally impressive performance against the Welsh side. He will likely start against the Seagulls.

Raheem Sterling and Ben Chilwell also made an impact against Wrexham. We expect them to start against tougher opposition.

Thiago Silva didn’t feature, so also expect to see him play.

Chelsea vs Brighton Prediction

This is going to be a seriously tough task for Mauricio Pochettino. Brighton have proven last season in the Premier League that they can roll with the big dogs.

They possess undeniable talent. The likes of Kaoru Mitoma, Moises Caicedo and Solly March have all proven themselves to be quality players.

Saying this, with the sense of optimism surrounding Chelsea at the moment -we back the Blues to get the job done in Philly.
