Stadium: Stamford Bridge (London).
Referee: Mike Dean.
Chelsea: Havertz (?), Loftus-Chick (?), Werner (?), Silva, Kante, Chilwell.
Brighton: Trossard (?), Veltman (?), Dunk, Sarmiento, Steel, Locadia.
Chelsea in the last match, not without problems, but on the whole he confidently dealt with the uncompromising Aston Villa, which, under Gerrard, only loses to a select few (Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea). Again, not without a missed goal, though curious – James cut the ball into his own net with his head. Perhaps this victory will return Tuchel’s team to the championship race, although the gap from the “townspeople” is already large – six points. Guardiola retained one advantage point against Klopp in the 18/19 season, and now as many as six.
Brighton congratulations, because he managed to win the Premier League! For the first time in twelve matches, which allowed them to return to the top half of the table. Although if you look from the other side, on this long segment Potter’s team lost only three times, this is what prevented the seagulls from rolling back too low. The defense is fine for such results – eight missed in eight games. Last season, Brighton was able to hold out at Stamford Bridge. The game ended with a score of 0: 0.
The home win is quoted at 1.45. The odds are fair, but what else could the bookmakers put? However, after the long-awaited win, the players “Brighton” will be more liberated, and even if they are defeated in London, no one will say anything to them. If you like to take risks and play against favorites – 2.84 on “double chance” looks pretty good…
The guests are good in defense, so they are capable of losing with a difference of only one goal. True, there is no desire to bet on the odds (+1.5) for 1.64, it looks much better (+1) with odds 2.13… Chelsea have won only one of their four head-to-head meetings.
“Both To Score” in their matches Chelsea have gone seven times out of the last ten, as have the Londoners’ individual total over 1.5. The opponent was able to win with a handicap (+1.5) the same seven times.
Even taking into account their trend for total less than 2.5 – 7 out of 10, Brighton still plays a bet on mutual goals quite often – 6 out of 10. And they won with a handicap (+1.5) in seven cases.
Brighton’s goal gives a good 1.86…
Forecast and bet on the Chelsea – Brighton match
Brighton has played quite well under Potter against Chelsea, especially in the last two seasons, where the Blues have won only once. “Seagulls” have a well-organized team game. With fairly average (if not worse) players, they manage to show excellent ball control, which even Man United cannot do. It is worth considering the handicap (+1) for guests over 2.13…
