Brighton & Hove Albion vs Chelsea betting tips: Premier League preview, predictions and odds


Match preview

Two clubs: one Graham Potter.

Brighton haven’t won since he left, while Chelsea haven’t lost since his arrival.

Will both statistics be shattered here?

Under Potter, Chelsea have taken 11 points from five Premier League games, dramatically held to a 1-1 draw by Manchester United last weekend.

Then, on Tuesday, the Blues wrapped up top spot in their Champions League group, beating RB Salzburg 2-1 in Austria.

Mateo Kovačić and Kai Havertz both scoring absolute screamers in that one.

Brighton meantime haven’t on since smashing Leicester 5-2 on 4 September.

With Roberto De Zerbi at the helm, they’ve taken just two points from five outings, swatted aside by Manchester City a week ago.

Nevertheless, the Seagulls have been generally impressive under De Zerbi, hoping it’ll all come together here.

Who will prevail at the Amex?

Since taking over, Roberto De Zerbi has made just one change to his starting XI, so there will be a familiar look once more.

Moisés Caicedo and Alexis Mac Allister, who signed a new long-term deal this week, will be the midfield duo.

The Argentine is one yellow card away from suspension.

In 2022, Leandro Trossard has scored against Arsenal, Spurs, Man United, Liverpool and Man City, looking to complete the ‘big six’ set.

Billy Gilmour will be hoping to feature against the side he left on deadline day; Levi Colwill is ineligible.

As was the case when he was Seagulls boss, Graham Potter’s starting XIs are often hard to predict.

One stalwart is Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has started every match in goal since the change of management.

Wesley Fofana, Reece James and N’Golo Kanté are out long-term.

So, Raheem Sterling and Christian Politic started as wing-backs in Salzburg; will we see something similar here?

Last season’s Brighton player of the year Marc Cucurella will make his first return to the Amex.
