It’s match day 21 for Brighton and 23 for their visitors Chelsea F.C. Brighton are currently position 9in the premier league table despite playing two less games while the blues in position three after losing points to Manchester City on the previous weekend and losing the position to the reds. The blues may look to redeem themselves from the defeat and try to keep on the tittle race, there was a lot of frustration among blues fans on the previous fixture of the two as the blues dropped two points at the stoppage time.
Thomas Tuchel will look on different options to fix on the injury issues he is facing. Marcos Alonso and Lukaku performing poorly at City, he may make a possible change at the fixture to try and out do his opponent. He may opt to give Lewis Baker his first EPL start so that the Captain shifts to the Left wing back position. Kai Havertz can step up for Lukaku while Timo Werner steps in for Ziyech partnering with Mason Mount while Pulisic drops to the right wing back position. Chelsea predicted line: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Lewis Baker, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, Christian Pulisic, Kante, Jorginho, Azpilicueta, Mason Mount, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz(3-4-2-1)
Graham Potter on the other hand has a boost despite being down on the table in that his team has almost full squad, missing only two players to injury. (Lewis Dunk and Yves Bissouma). He may change his formation to 4-3-1-2 to use to strikes. His possible selection includes; Roberto Sanchez, Tariq Lamptey, Adam Webster, Dan Burn, Marc Cucurella, Pascal, Adam Lallana, Alexis Mac Allister, Jakub Moder, Leandro Trossard and Neal Maupay.
