Brighton faces Chelsea on Monday, September 14th at Amex Stadium for an English Premier League match.
Brighton struggled in the second half of the Premier League season, especially after the COVID-19 break in June. Brighton was actually in a small fight for its Premier League lives towards the end of the season, as the team finished in 15th place. Brighton had a record of 9-14-15 in the 2019-20 season, and the team will look for major improvements this season. Brighton had struggled mightily on offense at the end of the campaign last season, and in order for Brighton to be safe in the Premier League after the 2020-21 campaign, they will have to find more goal scorers. Brighton has to take on a very tough Chelsea team in this one, a team that could easily score three goals or more. If Brighton has a chance in this match, they will have to score first, as playing from behind against Chelsea is never an easy thing for any club.
Chelsea finished in the top four of the Premier League table last season, and the team has big aspirations for this upcoming season. Chelsea had a record of 20-6-12 in the 2019-20 season, and The Blues feel that they may be able to make a run at a top-three finish this season. Chelsea was obviously not in good form when they took on Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League, and that was Chelsea's last competitive match (4-1 loss). Chelsea will have to start this Premier League season with a road win against a feasible Brighton to try and kickstart a strong season.
The last time Brighton and Chelsea met was on August 29th of 2020 in a club friendly. Brighton and Chelsea drew 1-1 in that match at Brighton. Chelsea is 3-2-0 against Brighton in its last five matches these two teams have played against each other.
I will take Chelsea on the three-way money line in this game, as I think Chelsea is going to start the season on the right foot with a win on the road. Chelsea should be able to score first and hold on for its first win of the season.
