Brighton 1-2 Chelsea Premier League | HIGHLIGHTS

Brighton 1-2 Chelsea never fail to bring all the excitement after another brilliant one in an all-London derby.

This match is nothing short of entertainment, with everything on the line for the Blues, who need European football to save their season and budget.

Before this game between Brighton and Hove against Chelsea, the pressure have been on Pochettino to make something happen.

Things have looked somewhat different with the Blues, who, along with many others, have gotten a massive boost.

Their captain is riding with them again, which could motivate them to grab all those important spots for European football.

The main focus is on both teams involved in this match, as so much history has already been written down for many years.

It has been a ride in which both teams have constantly proved what they could make happen when playing against themselves over the years.

However, there is so much heated rivalry between them, and Chelsea has taken so much regarding the business side of the game.

Many Brighton fans would want to say they have been robbed one too many times after some of their players and coach opted for a move to Stamford Bridge.

Things weren’t meant to be, as Graham Potter and his staff could only last months before sacking them all. The Blues have rebuilt with new faces.

The curtain falls on tonight’s 2023/24 Premier League season as Brighton hosts Chelsea at the Amex Stadium for this huge game.

While the Seagulls, currently sitting comfortably in 10th place, have little riding on the game, Chelsea come into the match desperate for points.

The Blues are in a battle for European qualification. Chelsea can’t afford any slip-ups, with Manchester United breathing down their necks for the coveted seventh spot, which offers a Conference League qualification path.

The Blues will be wary of a Brighton side that loves to play attractive, possession-based football. The Seagulls have already caused some upsets in past games, which they won against the Blues.

There is sure a lot both managers are banking on based on this lineup that has been dished out by both sides who want something.

Chelsea is still euphoric about Reece James and other players’ return from injury during the Nottingham Forest match.

There isn’t any room for errors, knowing that this is the crucial part of the season, determining what will happen in the upcoming campaign.

Brighton and Chelsea are already slugging it out right now for that chance of making their season count, knowing there is one game left to say goodbye.

It is a tough tie to call any of them favourite to claim as they have always had it uneasy against themselves, but the Blues have the upper hand.

Brighton at home is always a dangerous proposition, while Chelsea’s need for points is high, and they would do anything to avoid missing out on Europe.

It could be a tight, cagey affair, but Chelsea’s superior squad depth might see them edge it, knowing they have enough options to call from the bench.

This won’t be an easy fight for the season, but if all goes well, the two teams are likely to get something tangible for themselves.

There are already talks for next season despite knowing what’s on the ground and what changes could be coming soon.

Brighton and Chelsea’s preparations for this match did a number on them, and they came in with so much anticipation to get going immediately after kickoff.
