Brighton vs Chelsea 29.10.2022
Graham Potter’s unbeaten start to life at Chelsea faces another test when the Blues take on his former side Brighton on Saturday. With 7 wins and 3 draws, Potter has had a near-perfect time so far as Chelsea have not lost a game since a 1-0 defeat at Dinamo Zagreb, Thomas Tuchel’s last game in charge. With their recent results, Chelsea have moved from the brink of UCL group stage elimination to qualifying for the knockout stage with a game to spare. To keep up this momentum and heap pressure on fellow top 4 chasers, this trip to the Amex is a crucial one for the Blues.
For Brighton, the search for the first win under De Zerbi continues. So far, the Seagulls are winless in the last 5 with 3 losses and 2 draws. Interestingly, the last victory was a 5-2 thumping of Leicester, Potter’s last game in charge. With 15 points from 11 matches, Brighton are 6 points away from the drop zone. Therefore, to avert any possible fight for survival, a quick turnaround of form is expedient.
Chelsea head into this tie on the back of an impressive run, scoring at least 2 goals each in 3 of their last 5 games. We expect this form to continue here hence we are backing the away side to score at least 2 goals in this game.
