Brighton – Chelsea betting tips for today, January 20, 2018.
Football: England – Premier League
Tip: Over 1.5 Goals
Match Result: 0:4 WON!!!
|Brighton and Chelsea kick off round 24 of the Premier League (PL). The Blues’ visit will mark the Seagull’s 150th league game at the Amex Stadium but the first ever meeting of the sides here! When the sides met earlier in the season, Chelsea won comfortably 2-0 at home.|
|Boring, boring Chelsea? The Blues have drawn their last five matches (beat Norwich after penalties in the FA Cup) in all competitions including three 0-0 games.|
|After four games without a win, and one win in their last 12, the dreaded relegation zone is sneaking up on the Seagulls (only three points clear of Stoke in 18th). A positive result against the reigning champions will be vital in terms of both points and momentum.|
|Brighton defender Lewis Dunk is optimistic ahead of the match, and stressed that they have performed well so far against the ‘big’ sides: “It goes without saying though that if we can get something out of the game it would be a massive boost for the whole team”.|
|Players to watch: The last time Alvaro Morata scored, Brighton left the Bridge with zero points. Since then, five goalless matches have gone by for the Spanish international. Can he net against Brighton yet again and end his dry spell?|
|Scoring in two of his last three appearances, Brighton top scorer Glenn Murray may be the man the Seagulls will look to for more goals.|
|Stat attack: Nice guys? Chelsea have picked up a PL low 27 yellow cards so far (but three reds!).|
|Behind Stoke, Brighton ranks as the second best behaved team with their meager collection of 31 yellow cards and no sending-offs.|
|Fifteen of Brighton’s 23 league points have come in front of their home fans.|
|Only West Brom (three), have played more 0-0 matches than these teams (two each).|
