Chelsea vs Brighton: Preview, team news, broadcast listings - September 28

September 27, 2019 By Michelle Bonsu
Can Chelsea finally pick up their first home Premier League win when Brighton come to town? Live Soccer TV's match preview provides match facts, team news, and global broadcast listings for Chelsea's upcoming clash with Brighton at Stamford Bridge this Saturday.

Preview: Chelsea vs Brighton

Chelsea come into this game having easily cruised to a 7-1 victory over Grimsby in the League Cup. That marks the team's first home win under Frank Lampard, and now they'll be hoping to make it their first home win in the Premier League when Brighton come to town this weekend. The Blues find themselves outside the top ten (in 11th presently) but can certainly work their way back into the top half of the table with a victory against an opponent who are just a couple of points away from the drop zone.

Brighton, for their part, have won just one game in the league so far this season, and current boss Graham Potter clearly had no interest in going far in the league cup as he fielded a weak starting XI against Aston Villa. It's apparent that Brighton's focus is staying up in the Premier League, and having picked up just three points from their last five games, they will be looking to grind out a point against Chelsea on Saturday.

However, that will be easier said than done. Brighton have never beaten Chelsea in any of their eight prior meetings (four in the Premier League and four in the second tier) and they are facing an injury crisis at the moment.

Match facts and stats: Chelsea vs Brighton

  • Brighton have lost all eight of their league meetings with Chelsea
  • In addition, Brighton have failed to score in 5 of their last 7 away matches
  • However, Chelsea have shipped 13 Premier League goals so far this season and are yet to keep a clean sheet
  • The Blues are winless in their three Premier League home games this season (D2 L1)
  • They're hoping to avoid going their first four without a win at home for the first time since the 1986/87 season
