Chelsea vs Brighton Head-to-head (h2h)
- Lampard’s men won the previous four match-ups.

- Hove Albion conceded twice or more in the former four fixtures.
- At home, Chelsea has registered a combined scorecard of 5-0 from the last two encounters.
Chelsea 2-1 Brighton
The 7-1 drubbing of Grimsby will provide some confidence to Frank Lampard as to the direction the club is going, especially with majority of that starting eleven being youth prospects. Coming to the game at hand, Brighton should do enough to keep Kepa’s run of games without a clean sheet going.
But, Chelsea have enough quality about them to overcome anything Brighton throw at them. The Blues should prevail narrowly, with a 2-1 scoreline being our pick. There is always the chance of Chelsea conceding uncanny goals though, which might have a bearing on the result. We are going for a narrow win but we won’t be surprised if the game ends in a draw.
