Brighton vs Chelsea 20 January 2018: EPL Preview and Predictions

Brighton will be at home this weekend as Chelsea head to the south of England for this clash in the English Premier League. Antonio Conte will be desperate to ensure that the Blues don’t drop any more points at this stage of the season and as a result we should see a good performance from the visiting side.

At home, Brighton has been a hard team to beat. This side knows that they are in a relegation battle this season and getting home points is essential in ensuring that the side is safe when this season comes to an end. Playing Chelsea will not be an easy task for the home side as they are no match for the quality and class of Chelsea and will rely heavily on their fans to give them a boost.

Chelsea know that they can’t afford to not leave Brighton without all three points. This is a side that needs to ensure top 4 is safe and before that is done, wins are needed. There is more than enough talent in this outfit to ensure a win so if they perform to their ability they should win. I think Chelsea will do enough to win although it might not be easy since Brighton fight hard at home.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a poor price on betting on Chelsea and as a result it is an option we should not take. The best bet in the under 2.5 goals since I think this will be a tight game due to Brighton parking the bus. In addition to that, I also like the bet for both teams not to score since I don’t think Brighton have what it takes to score against Chelsea.

Pick:
Under 2.5 goals
