Chelsea host Brighton knowing a win at Stamford Bridge will move them up into second place in the Premier League after Liverpool slipped up at Leicester.

The Blues beat Aston Villa 3-1 on Boxing Day and continue the hectic festive schedule with Romelu Lukaku starting to look back to something like his best again.

Lukaku came off the bench to inspire the win at Villa Park and could make his first start in three weeks against Brighton.

After Liverpool lost 1-0 at Leicester, Chelsea have a chance to move three points ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s side ahead of their meeting with them at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Brighton go into the game off the back of their first win in 12 Premier League matches after goals from Leandro Trossard and Neal Maupay gave them a 2-0 win over Brentford on Boxing Day.
