14th September 2020 – 21:15, Amex Stadium, Brighton
Brighton and Chelsea are going to wrap up the first round of the new Premier League season. The main goal of the hosts is to survive in the top flight, while the away side wants to challenge the title.
Match Preview & Team News
Brighton ended the latest campaign in the 15th spot, and they managed to avoid relegation. They stayed seven points clear from Bournemouth, who was just below the red line. Graham Potter’s side had a decent finish of the season as is remained undefeated in the final three rounds. The home side did quite good in front of the oppositions’ goal as they were scoring once per match on average, but their defense should have been much tighter. Brighton was pretty quiet on the transfer market, as they signed just two players, Jan Paul van Hencke from NAC Breda and Ulrick Brad Enema Ella from Amiens. Top-rated bookies predict a relegation struggle for the hosts, and we’ll see if they are going to remain in the Premier League.
Chelsea managed to book the 4th spot at the end of the previous season, although their form was not too stable. This time, the Blues want to step up and get involved in the title battle. Frank Lampard has a few top-class additions to his squad, and the visitors are considered third favorites for the Premier League trophy. Kai Havertz, Thiago Silva, and Benjamin Chilwell joined the club, and they should make a significant contribution to the title battle. Chelsea did an excellent job in the final third last season, as the away side scored 69 times, but they conceded too many times. The visitors were putting some fantastic displays away from Stamford Bridge, and they managed to get back home with a win nine times in 19 outings.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Chelsea has been dominant in head to head matches of these two sides, as the Blues failed to win just once in their six clashes. We believe they are going to meet the expectations and deliver another victory.
Goals Market Prediction
Their clashes at Amex Stadium have always been fascinating and efficient, and we don’t believe this one should be much different. Therefore, football fans should enjoy at least three goals in total.
