Recent Performances

Chelsea Recent Performances(LLDLD):

  • 0-2 vs Real Madrid – Champions League 
  • 0-1 vs Wolves – Premier League 
  • 0-0 vs Liverpool – Premier League 
  • 0-2 vs Aston Villa – Premier League 
  • 2-2 vs Everton – Premier League

  • 0-2 vs Bournemouth – Premier League 
  • 3-3 vs Brentford – Premier League
  • 0-5 vs Grimsby Town – FA Cup 
  • 0-1 vs Crystal Palace – Premier League 

As you can see Chelsea has had terrible form recently as they haven’t won a single match in their last five games in all competitions including their 2-0 defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League. They’re currently without a permanent manager as Frank Lampard, former Chelsea Legend, is currently managing the team. 

Brighton on the other hand have had an impressive run in the Premier League since they’ve been promoted to the big leagues. They are currently 7th and have three wins in their past five wins with only a single loss against rivals Tottenham Hotspur. 

Current Standings 

Chelsea FC: Currently 11th with 39 points and a goal difference of -2

Brighton: Currently 7th with 46 points and a goal difference of 16. 

Brighton has significantly improved on their performance while Chelsea FC have seen a dip as their manager Graham Potter was sacked for poor performance. Chelsea FC is normally a team to be feared in the Premier League, up there with the biggest teams like Manchester City and Manchester United. Their standings in the league reflect their lack of managerial guidance.

BTTS Betting Market 

Given the fact that neither of these teams are as domineering as Manchester City with their 7-0 win over RB Leipzig, I would think that it’s more than likely that both teams score as they struggle against one another. Chelsea has a star studded squad with impressive players such as Joao Felix and Mudryk up front. Brighton however is a squad with a solid foundation and taking bigger and bigger steps to higher and higher points in the Premier League. This combination of inexperience in the big league and a large team with deficiency in defense is sure to product a result in which both teams score. 

BTTS Verdict: Yes 

Over/Under Betting Market 

This result really depends on how Brighton’s defense handles the unpredictable threats of the Chelsea strikers. If the Chelsea men manage to crack the Brighton back line, this matchup is sure to produce a scoreline which favours chelsea in the end but only slightly. I predict that Chelsea will deliver more goals in this match than Brighton but only slightly. 

Over/Under Verdict: Over 2.5

Overall Winner 

the Opta supercomputer places Chelsea and Brighton’s chances of winning this match at an even 36% with the remaining 28% being a draw. I think that Chelsea will finally overcome their losing streak in this game.

Overall Verdict: Chelsea Win
