Watch Chelsea vs Brighton Live

Chelsea are back in Premier League action at Stamford Bridge this afternoon. The Blues’ encouraging recent resurgence under Mauricio Pochettino hit a sizeable roadblock last weekend in the shape of high-flying Newcastle, who thrashed the 10 men 4-1 as the manager lamented their worst display so far under his leadership.

But the hosts could climb into the top half of the table if they get back to winning ways today against a Brighton team who ended a six-match winless run by overcoming Nottingham Forest last time out and who lost in west London in the Carabao Cup earlier this season. The Seagulls’ fairytale run of form has been heavily impacted by an injury crisis that is only getting worse with every game, though they did secure safe passage through to the Europa League knockout rounds in Athens on Thursday.
