On Monday, September 14, late in the evening in the first round of the Premier League, the match “Brighton” – “Chelsea” will take place, the forecast for which we propose below.
The Seagulls played the last championship at their level. The team completed the main task – registration in the Premier League was preserved, and the final was the 15th place in the standings. For Brighton, this was already the third consecutive season in the elite division of England, and, I must say, the team had not finished above the 15th position yet.
However, Brighton’s line-up does not allow counting on anything more than the struggle for registration. The team was not active in the transfer market. The club’s management managed to get an experienced Adam Lallana. But the loss of the “seagulls” is serious. Aaron Muya, who was one of the team leaders, left to compete in the Chinese Championship.
In the last championship , Graham Potter’s wards did not look the best in their home arena. In their previous nine games, Brighton have beaten only Arsenal at home (2: 1). Let’s note the low performance of the “seagulls” in home matches. For the entire past championship, they managed to score at home with only 20 goals. Only Norwich and Crystal Palace had worse performance.
In the infirmary at Brighton are now Christian Walton, Florin Andone and José Izquierdo. Questionable Aaron Connolly.
The London club can also add the past season to its assets. The team finished in fourth position and won a ticket to the Champions League. I must say that the “retirees” went through the period of formation under the leadership of Frank Lampard , and they did it quite well. In the new season, the club’s management again trusts the young mentor. In the transfer market, Chelsea don’t pass the back. Havertz, Ziyech, Werner and Chilwell were invited to defend the colors of the club, who are quite promising performers. At the same time, Willian and Pedro left the “aristocrats”, and Batshuais were also leased.
At the end of last season , Chelsea did not look their best on the road. In the last nine matches, they managed to beat only Aston Villa (2: 1) and Crystal Palace (3: 2).
Ben Chilwell, Billy Gilmore, Thiago Silva and Hakim Ziyech will not be able to help in the upcoming match due to injuries. Disqualification will serve Mateo Kovacic. Questionable Rhys James.

Despite the home arena factor, Brighton is inferior to Chelsea in many aspects. In our opinion, the bet on the victory of the guests looks quite playable.
