Chelsea has to win today, no matter what, regardless of the injuries and suspensions where four players are missing. A win is a must after drawing in the past five games in all competitions where three of them ended 0-0 and Chelsea were able to score just twice from an open play in the past five matches, since the beginning of 2018.
The starting Xl is as following:
Goalkeeper: Willy Caballero
Defenders: Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta (captain)
Midfielders: Victor Moses, N’Golo Kante, Tiemoue Bakayoko, and Marcos Alonso
Forward: Eden Hazard, Michy Batshuayi, and Willian
Bench: Eduardo, David Luiz, Davide Zappacosta, Sterling, Ethan Ampadu, Barkley, Musonda.
Our predicted score
Chelsea aren’t going in their best time especially with four absences against Brighton today, and three attacking players due to injuries and suspensions which are Pedro, Alvaro Morata, and Cesc Fabregas. However, Chelsea has to win this match no matter what. We expect a 1-0 win for the Blues.
