As Chelsea take on Brighton and Hove Albion at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, we take a look at the head-to-head statistics between these two sides at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea got lucky in their last outing against Cardiff City away from home as the officiates failed to spot an offside goal which helped their course to come back from behind to find the winner against the relegation contenders. Following that controversial game, the Blues will invite Brighton and Hove Albion to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday as they continue to push for a place in the top four.
Anything lesser than three points will be considered as a failure for Chelsea. The Blues rested Eden Hazard and Callum Hudson-Odoi on Wednesday and they are expected to feature in the starting lineup against Chris Hughton’s side.
Every single point is crucial in their chases for two different reasons and a huge tussle is expected at Stamford Bridge as three points are available for grabs. We shall look at the head-to-head statistics between these two clubs.

Maurizio Sarri’s side have not been at their best in the Premier League having won just two of their last five Premier League games.

Sarri says that CHO will start 2-3 of Chelsea’s next 8 matches:
Will probably start 2 EL and just 1 PL game.
In reality, he should start 1 EL + 3 PL matches and be the #2 winger with Willian demoted to #4. pic.twitter.com/xuwEXOr7tz
