Brighton vs Chelsea – Premier League: This Saturday afternoon at the American Express Community Stadium
Brighton hosts Chelsea on a match counting towards the Premier League’s 24th round.
Brighton occupies the 16th place of the league table with 23 points conquered, thanks to a record of 5 wins, 8 draws and 10 losses.
Their goal ratio counts with 17 goals scored (being the 2nd worst attack of the competition) and 29 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2 goals per match.
Their home record is positive, having suffered only 2 losses on the 11 rounds they’ve played in front of their fans. The team is coming off a less positive cycle, only having gotten 2 wins on their last 13 matches.
Chelsea is currently in 4th place of the Premier League with 47 points conquered, having a record of 14 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses.
So far, the Blues count with 41 goals scored and 16 goals conceded (being the best defence of the league alongside Manchester United), presenting this way an average of 2.5 goals per match.
Next to the leaders Manchester City, Chelsea is the team with more points conquered playing as visitors. The team led by Conte isn’t on a great moment of form, having tied the last 5 matches they’ve played.
Brighton vs Chelsea – Betting Tip and Prediction:
It is true that Brighton only has 2 losses at home, but it is worth mentioning that they’ve only faced 2 of the top 6 teams on the 11 rounds they played at the American Express Community Stadium.
In turn, Chelsea is on a less positive period when it comes to the opposing goals, but the goal chances are still there, which is a good sign.
What has been saving Chelsea is their brilliant consistency at the back, since they’ve only conceded 3 goals on the last 750 minutes of football played.
With that said, Brighton, presenting the 2nd worst attack of the competition, will have major difficulties to overcome the Blues’ defensive
barrier, so I believe this match will end with a win in favour of the Antonio Conte’s men.
