The Seagulls are on a poor run of form, having won just one of their last six games. In particular, they are struggling for goals and have not netted more than once in their last 11 EPL matches. After a very topsy-turvy season, their opponents have actually turned things around in recent weeks, notably beating London rivals Tottenham and West Ham.

Mauricio Pochettino was able to welcome back Reece James during his team’s win over Nott’m Forest. The club captain is a crucial player and is back on the bench once again. Ben Chilwell and Carney Chukwuemeka have also returned to team training and the fullback makes into the bench today.  Joel Veltman is out for Roberto de Zerbi.

Brighton won this fixture 4-1 last season, but Chelsea have never lost back-to-back visits to the Amex Stadium. They also won the reverse fixture in December at Stamford Bridge 3-2. A win would give the hosts a chance of finishing in the top half of the table. Depending on other results, the visitors could potentially overtake Spurs and Newcastle and sneak into the European spots.

Here's how they line up:

Brighton: Verbruggen, Lamptey, Webster, Dunk, Igor, Gross, Gilmour, Buonanotte, Enciso, Adingra, Joao Pedro

Chelsea: Petrovic, Gusto, Chalobah, Badiashile, Cucurella, Gallagher, Caicedo, Palmer, Madueke, Jackson, Mudryk

There is then plenty to play for, so read on to find out how you can watch the game where you are. Make sure you don’t miss any of the remaining EPL action by checking out how to watch Premier League live streams.
