How Chelsea could line up against Brighton & Hove Albion

Sports Mole looks at how Chelsea could line up for their Premier League clash against Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium.

Chelsea will be looking to continue their momentum from last weekend's 2-0 win over champions Manchester City when they take on Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium on Sunday.

Maurizio Sarri's side became the first to beat City in the Premier League this season with their triumph at Stamford Bridge, and are now aiming for back-to-back league wins for the first time since the beginning of November.

Only two points separate third from fifth heading into the weekend, with Chelsea currently sitting in the final Champions League spot ahead of Arsenal on goal difference.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how they could line up at the Amex.



Possible CHE XI vs. BHA

Out: Victor Moses (back), Marco van Ginkel (knee)
Doubtful: Mateo Kovacic (thigh), Gary Cahill (unspecified), Alvaro Morata (knee)

Chelsea could be without striker Alvaro Morata after he was forced off with a knee injury during Thursday's Europa League draw with Videoton.

Olivier Giroud may be in line to replace the Spaniard, but against Man City Sarri played with Eden Hazard as his central striker and the success of that game could see him stick with the same system.

Hazard, along with the likes of Cesar Azpilicueta, Kepa Arrizabalaga and a host of other first-team players were rested for the trip to Hungary and should return to the side for this one.

Doubts over the fitness of Mateo Kovacic mean that Ross Barkley is likely to be one of few to retain his place, although Ruben Loftus-Cheek is again pushing for inclusion.
