Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction at Brighton & Hove Albion


eden hazard chelsea

Chelsea FC travel to Brighton & Hove Albion tomorrow in a match that will see the Blues hope to get people talking again about what the team itself is doing, not the supporters. Ugly incidents of Chelsea fans expressing bigotry have overshadowed the success of the team on the pitch lately, and the west London side obviously strives to try and eliminate as much of this hatred and intolerance present in the beautiful game as best they can.

Additionally, manager Maurizio Sarri wants to make sure the ugliness off the pitch doesn’t become a distraction for the club, one that starts hindering the team’s performance. Let’s take a look at who Sarri could field in his first team, in the hopes of taking all three points from this one.
