Chelsea vs Brighton Match Preview
Brighton have never scored a goal, let alone got a positive result, away to Chelsea and we do not see that changing this weekend.
The Seagulls’ 3-0 win away to Watford on the opening full day of the Premier League season is starting to be a distant memory and their only subsequent victory was against Bristol Rovers in the Carabao Cup – a competition they exited at home to Aston Villa this week.
The problem for Brighton under manager Graham Potter is the same as when Chris Hughton was in charge – they do not score enough goals and created nowhere near enough chances despite having the vast majority of possession in last week’s 0-0 draw at Newcastle.
In contrast, Chelsea are becoming great entertainers with Frank Lampard at the helm. They have been involved in several goalfests already this term and finally bagged a home win at the fifth attempt in midweek, 7-1 against Grimsby in the Carabao Cup.
For a team in transition, it is not surprising that the Blues have been conceding goals as well as scoring them and it is all part of the learning curve for their young players.
However, the Chelsea defence should not have too much to fear from Brighton, who have netted only twice in their last five league games, and this is expected to be a success of a more perfunctory nature for Lampard’s side.
