PREDICTION
Chelsea have been in outstanding form at Stamford Bridge and even with rotations likely, they should have far too much firepower for Brighton. The visitors will look to keep it tight for as long as possible, but goals are proving tough to come by for them and a defeat to nil is quite possible here.

MEMORABLE MEETING
50 years ago, the two sides met in an FA Cup fourth round replay at Stamford Bridge after a draw at the Goldstone Ground in the original meeting. Lightning could not strike twice for Brighton though as the Blues moved onto the next round thanks to a 4-0 win in front of their own fans.
