The Chelsea vs Brighton live stream sees the Seagulls attempt to inflict another damaging defeat on the Blues when they travel to Stamford Bridge today — and you can watch it live from anywhere with a VPN.
Having beaten Spurs and drawn with City, Chelsea looked especially poor in defence during last weekend's 4-1 defeat at Newcastle which also saw captain Reece James sent off. The one bright note was another excellent display from Raheem Sterling who looks back to his very best.
Brighton turned a corner in the opposite direction, last time out. They ended a run of poor results as they secured a 3-2 win at Nottingham Forest. Manager Roberto de Zerbi celebrated passionately after the game and will be looking for another strong display away from home. It won’t be easy for the Seagulls, though. They could be without as many as 11 players including stars Ansu Fati and Tariq Lamptey.
Chelsea: Sanchez; Disasi, Thiago Silva, Badiashile, Colwill; Caicedo, Fernandez; Sterling, Gallagher, Mudryk; Jackson.
Subs: Madueke, Broja, Palmer, Petrovic, Maatsen, Deivid Washington, Gilchrist, Bergstrom, Mato.
Brighton: Steele; Veltman, Van Hecke, Igor, Baleba,; Hinshelwood, Gilmour, Buonanotte, Lallana, Adingra; Ferguson
Subs: Verbruggen, Milner, Joao Pedro, Gross, Moder, Mitoma, Boaitey, Kavanagh, O'Mahony
