Chelsea vs. Brighton
Chelsea vs. Brighton game breakdown
Frank Lampard’s men more than matched Premier League leaders Liverpool in the 2nd half last week. Confidence throughout the team grew the more the match went on. Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham have now embedded themselves into the Chelsea starting line up. Movement all over the park has gone up a couple of notches and passing forward is at the forefront of every player’s mind.
Concentration at set-pieces has got to be improved, especially against a Brighton side that have big central defenders who carry an aerial threat. The Blue’s fans are now turning up at Stamford Bridge expecting to see an attacking style of football culminating in goals and special performances. This weekend’s opposition are going to be in a relegation dog fight all season.
Graham Potter’s sides stubborn resistance will not last long against a free-flowing Chelsea side that can penetrate you in so many different ways. Marcus Alonso came on for the injured Emerson in the last game and impressed with his passing and delivery into the box. Energy, pace and movement are a given at the minute from the home side. I expect a one-sided game with at least three goals but could be more if Chelsea really are in the mood.
