Brighton vs Chelsea: Prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results, odds today

Brighton host Chelsea tonight as the Blues look to continue their late push to qualify for Europe.

Saturday’s comeback win at Nottingham Forest moved the Blues level on points with sixth-placed Newcastle in the Premier League, after the Magpies were held earlier in the day to a home draw with the Seagulls.


Victory on the south coast - which would be Chelsea’s fourth in a row - is likely the bare minimum to remain in the race.

Newcastle head to Manchester United on the same night, with both Europa League-chasing clubs looking to avoid dropping points.

Brighton, meanwhile, are trying to cling onto a top-half finish.

Brighton vs Chelsea prediction

Chelsea struggled for large periods against Nottingham Forest but Pochettino’s work is clearly bearing fruit as players return from injury. Brighton, meanwhile, are winding down for the season and, though not entirely on the beach, they have bucket and spade in hand.

The Blues have enough momentum behind them to make it four wins in a row.

Chelsea to win, 2-1.
