Brighton vs Chelsea – New Year’s Day, 12.30pm 2:56 FREE TO WATCH: Highlights from Chelsea’s win at Arsenal
FREE TO WATCH: Highlights from Chelsea’s win at Arsenal
Chelsea still have a decent amount of quality. They walked away from Arsenal chuffed to bits as they never really played well, apart from upping it for the last 20 minutes. Frank Lampard changed it and they pushed and pushed. They are getting good results – even when they played well at Manchester City and lost, the signs were promising.
The way Brighton are performing at home is impressive. We saw a bit of a slip up against Sheffield United, but they went back to basics against Bournemouth and were worthy winners. Brighton will go after it, while Chelsea’s youngsters will be tired – they had to put a massive shift in at Arsenal to get the win. Brighton are very good at home, so I cannot separate them.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-2 (12/1 with Sky Bet)
