Brighton vs Chelsea Team News

Chelsea were simply faultless last season. The club supporters would have been delighted with their team’s performances throughout the season, as they managed to secure a top-four finish to book a ticket to the Champions League.

With a decent return of 66 points from 38 games, the Blues finished fourth on the log, level on points with third-placed Manchester United. For a club of their stature, this feat would ordinary have been dismissed as satisfactory.

However, their fourth-place finish held more significance given that they had been on a transfer embargo, preventing them from making any new signings. As if that wasn’t enough problems, star player Eden Hazard earned himself a transfer to Real Madrid.

In addition, they turned to former player Frank Lampard to take over the reins at Stamford Bridge. These changes left Chelsea in the lurch. With a depleted squad available, Lampard managed to perform wonders with his side. The likes of Olivier Giroud and Abraham were crucial in their success story.

Now, with their transfer ban lifted, the club have not held back in the transfer window, bringing in a flurry of new signings to strengthen the squad. Splashing the clash this summer, Abramovich has secured the signatures of Werner, Ziyech, Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Havertz.

Looking at Chelsea’s squad, it is really frightening at the moment. It goes without saying that the Pensioners are huge favorites to lift the Premier League trophy come the end of the season. Once these players start ticking, the sky will be limit for Chelsea.

To register an opening PL fixture win this season, they will need to see off the challenge of Brighton this weekend. Brighton are not one of the better sides in the division, but should have enough about themselves to escape relegation.

Toiling so hard last season, they mustered a 15th-place finish, amassing 41 points to stay seven points clear of the drop-zone. Given the Seagulls were in transition under Graham Potter at the time, last season can be termed a major success for Brighton.

Entering his second year in charge of Albion, Graham’s ultimate aim will be to keep his side clear of any relegation-related talk, perhaps challenging for a top-half finish. Surely, Brighton have it within themselves to make this a reality.
