In all the past five matches they have not scored more than one goal including their victory against Aston Villa which ended 1-0. Brighton have played 36 games so far this season.

    Ever since their 5-0 demolish at the Emirates Stadium by London rivals Arsenal, Chelsea have put in some good performances in their last five fixtures. They have won 3 matches, drawn one game and lost one. In all the matches they have drawn and won in the last five fixtures, Chelsea have scored more than once. Chelsea have played 36 games so far this season in which they have won 16 times, drawn 9 times and lost  11 times. This leaves them in 7th place with  57 points. Chelsea still have a chance of qualifying for European Club Football if they continue their winning spree.


    Brighton currently face an injury crisis with Veltman who was the goal scorer in their last match, Julio Enciso, Joao Pedro, Solly March, Kaoru Mitoma, Jack Hinshelwood, Pervis Estupinan, James Milner, Evan Ferguson and Jan Paul van Hecke all out with injuries.

    Chelsea's injury list reduced from 14 men to 6 men with Wesley Fofana, Romeo Lavia, Enzo Fernandez, Ben Chilwell, Carney Chukwuemeka and Robert Sanchez the only Chelsea players still injured.
