Chelsea take on Brighton looking to bounce back from a subpar performance at Newcastle.

The London club were well beaten at St James’ Park last week as they slipped further behind the Premier League pace-setters.

While a run of three draws in succession before the international break means Brighton have slipped away from that group, Roberto De Zerbi’s side returned to winning ways last time out against Nottingham Forest and will eye another significant result on the road.

A win at Stamford Bridge would move the visitors nine points clear of their opponents.
