Statistics, head to head

Head-to-Head

Chelsea are unbeaten in 14 games against Brighton since losing the first meeting in January 1933 (W12, D2).
The Blues have won all six competitive home fixtures against Albion, scoring 14 goals without reply

Chelsea so far

Chelsea could lose consecutive league games at Stamford Bridge for only the third time since Roman Abramovich became owner in 2004. It previously happened in November 2011 and December 2019.


They have dropped points in eight of their 15 home league matches, more than in any of the previous 23 seasons bar 2015-16.
The Blues have kept 14 clean sheets in 19 competitive matches since Thomas Tuchel became head coach.

Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton have only won twice in nine league matches, including one of their last five at home.

A sixth top-flight away victory of the season would represent a club record for the Seagulls.

They have kept 10 clean sheets in the Premier League this season, seven of them since the turn of the year. It’s their best top-flight record since recording 14 clean sheets in 1981-82.

Prediction

Chelsea are in good form at the moment and cannot be distracted by the recent news surrounding the forming of a European Super League.

After a positive result against Manchester City, the Blues will be hoping to maintain their form ahead of a busy final run-in.

Prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Brighton
