Chelsea vs Brighton

Chelsea return to Stamford Bridge expecting to pick up three points against Brighton this Wednesday. The first meeting between these sides at the AMEX Stadium proved to be a close one, with Chelsea narrowly taking the three points after winning 2-1. Maurizio Sarri finds his side in sixth place and he will be aiming to take them into the top-four which sits just one point away. The Seagulls, on the other hand, are fighting to stay clear of the relegation zone which sits just five points below them. This should be a simple win for Chelsea, but considering their shaky form this season Brighton have a chance of causing an upset.

The Premier League season is coming to an end and Chelsea will certainly want to improve on their current position which has them placed in sixth. The Blues sit just one point behind Tottenham Hotspur in fourth showing just how close the top six sides are.
