THE TEAM NEWS

CHELSEA

  • Chelsea bounced back from their loss to Liverpool with an emphatic 7-1 win against Grimsby in the League Cup to boost their confidence.
  • That match saw the return to action for Hudson-Odoi and James with the talented youngsters impressing as they come back in contention.
  • Zouma may come back into the defence with Christensen doubtful, while Frank Lampard may revert to 4-2-3-1 after going 4-3-3 last week.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Tomori, Marcos Alonso; Kante, Jorginho; Willian, Mount, Pulisic; Abraham

Unavailable: Van Ginkel (Injured), Loftus-Cheek (Injured), Emerson (Injured)

Doubtful: Christensen (Injured), Rudiger (Injured), Giroud (Illness)

BRIGHTON

  • Brighton picked up their second draw in a row last weekend at Newcastle and they will aim to keep things tight again away to Chelsea here.
  • Boss Graham Potter clearly had little interest in progressing in the League Cup as he fielded a completely second-string starting eleven.
  • Potter has a wide range of injuries to contend with right now but he will hope March can return to come back into the side on the left.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Ryan; Webster, Dunk, Burn; Montoya, Stephens, Propper, Alzate; Gross, Mooy; Maupay

Unavailable: Izquierdo (Injured), Trossard (Injured), Balogun (Injured), Bernardo (Injured), Duffy (Injured), March (Injured)

Doubtful: Schelotto (Injured), Maupay (Injured), Jahanbakhsh (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Chelsea are firing on all cylinders going forward but there remain question marks at the back. They look capable of scoring plenty of goals in every game they play and this may be one match where they are capable of outscoring their opponents in what could be a shootout against Brighton.
