Brighton hosts Chelsea in the 21st round of Premier League at Falmer Stadium.
Chelsea are seeking to win the meeting and stay in the top four in the Premier League table, with Chelsea holding 35 points in fourth place, while Liverpool top the club list with 55 points.
As for Brighton, it has 23 points in the fourteenth place and seeks to exploit the land factor and the public and achieve a positive result against Chelsea. Brighton won this season in 6 games and drew in 5 games, while losing in 9 games.
Most of the eye this season has been focused on a misfiring backline and a youthful attack, but Jorginho reiterated his importance to the team and squad generally at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
Despite the Italian being fortunate to stay on the pitch during the closing stages, his presence after his introduction settled the Blues down at a time when their opponents could have effectively ended the sport as a contest.
The performance creates a variety dilemma for Lampard going forward, although it’s one which he will like having when no-one in his squad is producing the consistency he’s demanding. Chelsea visit the south coast having now won seven of their 10 away matches during this season’s Premier League, although that record won’t intimidate Graham Potter’s Brighton squad.
While the Seagulls have only registered four wins at the Amex Stadium from 10 attempts, their sort of play has regularly caused problems for his or her opponents this season, no matter their position within the table.
Brighton & Hove Albion expected begining lineup:
Ryan; Montoya, Webster, Dunk; Burn; Bissouma, Propper; Trossard, Mooy; Jahanbakhsh; Maupay
