Chelsea vs Brighton
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London).
Brighton seems carefree about their fate this season too. The last time around, they had avoided relegation by the thinnest of margins, but have not so far shown any improvement on the pitch this campaign. At present, they have won just once in 2019-20 and is winless in their previous five match-days. In addition, the team has scored just five goals in total from their total six fixtures so far, and with them on the road this match-day, fans need not keep any grand expectation.
Especially with the Blues on the other side, the visitors are about to have a tough encounter this weekend. Frank Lampard’s men were defeated at the Stamford Bridge the last day by title-hopefuls, Liverpool. But despite the result, the hosts had put forth a brave fight, notably in the second half.
The loss will not be bothering the London outfit much, as they have been allotted an easy schedule of six comparatively easier matches next, and with academy players giving their best on the field, the prospects of the 2016-17 PL Champions look good.
