Ahead of the game, Chelsea are looking to secure their place in the top seven. Brighton, on the other hand, are aiming for a top-10 finish.

Brighton vs Chelsea

After securing European football for the first time ever last season, Brighton have been hampered this time around by a number of their big stars being sold.

The Seagulls have struggled for goals in recent weeks and one win in five has ended any hope of another top-seven finish. However, the South Coast outfit can still end 2023/24 in the top half of the Premier League, which is a respectable finish for their current squad.

While Brighton’s form has tailed off in recent months, Chelsea have lost just one of their last 11 Premier League matches.

This has seen the Blues climb out of midtable and into the European places. There will be no Champions League football at Stamford Bridge in 2024/25, but Europa League football would still be a decent achievement considering Chelsea spent much of the campaign languishing 10th or lower.

Brighton vs Chelsea betting stats

Here are some key Brighton and Chelsea stats to keep in mind as you prepare to make your selections ahead of the game:

  • Since Boxing Day 2023, only three teams have picked up more points than Chelsea (35) in the Premier League (Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool). They have lost just three of their 18 games in this period (W10 D5), with only Man City (0) suffering fewer defeats.
  • Chelsea have conceded in each of their past 15 away games in the Premier League, their longest ever run within a season. Their last clean sheet on the road in the league was at Fulham back in October (a 2-0 win), while they’ve shipped 33 goals in their 15 away trips since then.
  • Since beating Sheffield United 5-0 in February, Brighton have scored just six goals in their past 11 Premier League games.
  • Joao Pedro has scored nine league goals this season - he could become the fourth different player to net double figures in a single Premier League campaign for Brighton after Glenn Murray (twice), Neal Maupay and Alexis Mac Allister.

Brighton vs Chelsea Top Tip

  • Chelsea’s Cole Palmer (21 goals, 10 assists) is just the fourth player in Premier League history to score 20+ goals and provide 10+ assists in his debut season for a specific club
