Brighton vs Chelsea match preview
Chelsea wasted no time entering the market following the 12-month transfer ban, by spending big in the summer to boost Frank Lampard’s chances of improving on last season’s fourth-place finish. That was considered about par, so it’ll be interesting to see whether the influx of talent like Timo Werner, Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz can catapult the Stamford Bridge side into title contention this time around.
They face a tricky opening fixture at Graham Potter’s Brighton, who managed largely to avoid the relegation dog fight with some big results following the resumption of play this summer. The south coast side will be hoping to consolidate their position. However, a modest few weeks of business in the transfer market, compared to rivals, might make life more difficult. The only high profile arrival is that of Adam Lallana on a free transfer from Liverpool. His inability to stay fit over the last few seasons may lessen his impact, but his ability is in no doubt.
Seasons predictions? Chelsea to finish 3rd, but much closer to the eventual champions than in 2019/20. Brighton will stay up again and push to 14th in the Premier League. Tonight, we’ll go for a 0-2 win for the visitors.
