Brighton – Chelsea : Preview & Prediction
It is one of two Monday night postponements, what the British call “Monday Night” (the other is Sheffield United-Wolverhampton): Brighton-Chelsea promises to be a decidedly electrifying and highly anticipated match. In fact, there is great curiosity around Lampard’s Chelsea, also because the club owned by Patron Abramovic was certainly one of the most active and “spendthrift” on the market. The arrivals of Timo Werner and Kai Haverts from Germany have raised the bar of ambitions and passion for the Blues family again. Now it will be up to coach Lampard, who has already done an excellent job in his first year, to make the team make the leap in quality …
The two teams also faced each other in a friendly match on August 29th and the match ended in a draw (1-1 the final result).
Following Brighton (on 5 September), Brighton played another preparation match, going no further than 0-0 against the WBA.
Chelsea have also strengthened since last season with the arrivals of left-back Ben Chilwell from Leicester and the Ayax forward Hakim Ziyech.
A purchase campaign worth over two hundred million euros, which testifies to Patron Abramovic’s desire to relaunch the Blues project.
The arrival of 35-year-old defender Thiago Silva should also be added to the expensive purchases. The former AC Milan and PSG will bring experience and great quality to Chelsea’s defensive package.
In short, this is a team built to grow, first of all, but if possible also to win. And Brighton’s debut on the pitch, however difficult and treacherous, cannot and should not worry Lampard’s players. We choose to trust them and play the 2 final result.
