On April 15, Stamford Bridge (London) will host the match of the 31st round of the English Premier League, in which Chelsea will compete with Brighton. The battle will start at 16:00 CET.
The team is almost in the mode of “somehow finishing the season”. The situation is more than bad – the third manager has been working with “the Aristocrats” for a little more than half a year. Tuchel failed at the very start; Potter at least did not get better results. Nowadays, just before the summer, they have returned Lampard, the legendary football player who had been already a manager. “Super Frankie” does understand that he is only a temporary coach, and nothing is expected from him, except a kind of unbelievable success. Speaking about the Champions League, the team was defeated in the away match with a 0-2 score by Real, which actually deprives the chances of further struggle. And the debut of the new specialist happened in the battle against Wolverhampton. Even that game was lost – 0-1.
The club could have become hostage to the situation at Stamford Bridge. Graham Potter moved from “Albion” to London in the autumn after the start of a new cycle and the completion of the transfer window. Nevertheless, the bosses of “the Seagulls” turned out to have an unexpected and, that is the most important, successful decision: they relied on Roberto De Zerbi. There were some doubts about the Italian specialist, who, speaking about outside the homeland, had worked only with Shakhtar Donetsk, where he had achieved a very contradictory result. Still, his place in the standings speaks most eloquently about the success in Foggy Albion. And it is reasonable to mention not only the Premier League – there was only 1 defeat in all competitions in 2023 (the team lost to Fulham with a 0-1 score). Thus, there are chances to achieve the maximum in the FA Cup. Coming back to the Premier League, a daring contender has got real chances for the 4th, “Champions League” place even now, in April. They, however, have decreased after a 1-2 defeat made by Tottenham in the previous round.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Brighton has got 3 draws in a row. Taking into account the current season, it managed to defeat Chelsea at the home arena with a 4-1 score.
Bookmakers think that the opponents are equal. Still, “the Seagulls” were stronger during the season – thus, we bet on their victory, with a safe “0 goal handicap” (odd: 1.94).
