‘Seagulls can take advantage of vulnerabilities at the back’ as Chelsea host Brighton at Stamford Bridge

Published

on

Graham Potter’s transformation of Brighton into a possession-based, high-pressing team continues away at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Chelsea are a highly attacking side under Frank Lampard, yet they only managed to lose 2-1 to Liverpool last week.

The Blues have scored at least two in the last four Premier League games and it’s 6/4 for them to score over two.

With the transfer ban this Summer, they have had to field their young players.

Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount in particular have stood-out and could cause problems to a Brighton side embracing overlapping centre-backs in Dan Burn and Adam Webster.

Abraham actually has seven league goals so far and is 3/1 to score first.

Though Brighton are on the way to becoming one of the most attractive footballing sides in the division, you would not put it past them to rely on set-pieces here.

The Seagulls only forced three corners against Newcastle last time out, but could centre-back Lewis Dunk step-up for all their problems with finding a goal scorer to fit the system?

Dunk is 14/1 to bag anytime.

With Neal Maupay likely to start, veteran striker Glenn Murray will surely be introduced from the bench in the later stages of the game.

He is 17/2 to score last in this match.

This fixture will have lots of good, quality football. Graham Potter’s men seem to just be lacking that cutting-edge in front of goal at the minute, yet a draw is available at 15/4.
