Brighton and Chelsea get their new Premier League campaigns off and running on Monday 14th Sept with a meeting at the Amex Stadium.
The sides actually met recently at the ground in a pre-season friendly and that ended in a 1-1 draw – in fact, this repeat fixture last season also ended 1-1. You can back that scoreline (1-1) at around 8.50.
Chelsea have been busy in the summer transfer market too – splashing the cash with the likes of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz joining the Blues.
The match betting sees Chelsea at 1.61, the draw 4.33 and Brighton 5.00.
Chelsea have held the upper-hand when facing Brighton in recent seasons – they took 4 points off the Seagulls last season, and the Londoners have also won 11 of their last 12 against Brighton.
Lampard’s men have also won 7 of the last 9 head-to-heads vs Brighton ‘to nil’ – a repeat of that can be backed at 2.87.
In all competitions the sides have met 14 times, with Chelsea winning 11, just one win for Brighton and two draws.
Despite Chelsea’s dominance in this fixture, it’s interesting that 7 of the last 10 clashes went UNDER 2.5 GOALS – less that 3 goals in the game can be backed at 2.00, and Over 2.5 goals at 1.80.
Chelsea have also scored in ALL their 14 previous games against Brighton, but with both teams ‘NOT’ scoring in 9 of their last 12 head-to-heads this might be another option to look at – it’s on offer at 1.95.
The scoring markets see Chelsea’s new boys – Timo Werner on offer at 4.00 (1st) or 1.83 (anytime), with Havertz 8.00 (1st) or 3.20 (anytime). Brighton’s main hope of a goal might come from Neal Maupay – Brighton’s main striker can be backed at 8.00 (1st) or 3.20 (anytime).
Overall, it’s a game I expect Chelsea to get all three points from, but Brighton are not an easy side to beat at home. Under 2.5 goals and both teams not to score are tempting options, but I think Chelsea will want to hit the ground running in their opening game and I’m going to keep it simple but siding with Chelsea at 1.61 to get all three points here.
JUICESTORM VERDICT: CHELSEA WIN @1.61
