Chelsea vs Brighton 29.12.2021
Chelsea came from behind to win 3-1 at Aston Villa, thanks to 2 penalties scored by Jorginho and a header from substitute Romelu Lukaku. They are now 6 matches unbeaten in all competitions.
Brighton enjoyed a Boxing Day 2-0 win at home to Brentford. The win marked the end of a 12-match winless streak (9 draws and 3 losses). They will be looking to build on the momentum of that victory.
These are two teams known for strong defensive display therefore we don’t expect many goals in the match.
