In the upcoming fixture of English Premier League 2017-18 is going to witness the clash of the 4th team on the points table, Chelsea FC taking on the 16th rank Brighton Hove Albion in their home ground The American Express Community Stadium on Saturday (IST). The return fixture was won by Chelsea FC by 2 goals to nil and it is expected that The Blues would like to repeat the same in this fixture as well but Brighton haven’t lost more than two matches in their home ground in this season so they would try to do anything to keep it same and also try to steal one point from this game to paved their position from being relegated.

A run of just one win from the last 12 has seen Brighton drop towards the bottom three, with the Seagulls now just three points above the relegation zone. At home, however, they have lost just twice all season, with both defeats coming at the hands of Manchester City and Liverpool.
Chelsea required penalties to overcome Norwich and secure a spot in the next round of the FA Cup on Wednesday night after Jamal Lewis’ late strike forced extra time at Stamford Bridge. The Blues have now drawn their last five competitive outings in 90 minutes, though haven’t lost a match since a 1-0 defeat at West Ham last month.
Chelsea won the return fixture 2-0, but goals could be hard to come by in Saturday’s early kickoff.
