A huge victory for Chelsea over Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal ensures they’ve maintained their four-point cushion in fourth spot.
However, it’s safe to say that another performance like that and they might not find themselves so fortunate this time around, as Bernd Leno gifted them the equaliser with a calamitous error, which then saw the Blues with their tails up inside the final 10 minutes and go on to score the winner through none other than Tammy Abraham.
Brighton won their last outing against fellow south coast side Bournemouth, with Alireza Jahanbakhsh scoring his first goal for the club and in fact, that was the Iranian’s first club goal since netting a hat-trick to clinch the Dutch Eredivisie golden boot back in June 2018.
However, that 2-0 victory is just their second dating back to early November as they lost five of their nine matches in that time, and we’re not convinced that’s going to get any better against a team they’ve struggled to overcome down the years.
Chelsea To Win And Both Teams To Score
The Seagulls have lost all nine league fixtures between these two sides although the first of those did come as far back as 1983/84 in the old English second division.
That does include each of the five ties since Brighton were promoted for the 2017/18 Premier League campaign though, as the aggregate scoreline across those reads 13-1.
That’s hardly a head-to-head record that will fill the hosts’ supporters with confidence and this could well be yet another blow for them.
However, Graham Potters men have netted at least twice in five of their last seven at the Amex, with the exceptions against Sheffield Utd and Leicester, who hold two of the three best defensive records in the division.
Further, considering Aaron Mooy has come into form with a goalscoring man of the match performance against the Cherries on Saturday, we think they’ll at least plunder a goal.
It’s the Blues who look the value bet though having gone W9-D1-L2 from their 12 trips to opposition across all competitions since late August, as both sides netted in 10 of those too.
