In the upcoming fixture of English Premier League 2017-18 is going to witness the clash of the 4th team on the points table, Chelsea FC taking on the 16th rank Brighton Hove Albion in their home ground The American Express Community Stadium on Saturday (IST). The return fixture was won by Chelsea FC by 2 goals to nil and it is expected that The Blues would like to repeat the same in this fixture as well but Brighton haven’t lost more than two matches in their home ground in this season so they would try to do anything to keep it same and also try to steal one point from this game to paved their position from being relegated.

• Ross Barkley will sit out this game because he has not been cleared by the medical to be fit enough to play in this fixture
• Steve Sidwell is injured and will not play in this fixture
The home team’s one win of the last 12 games they have played, made them put in the last three teams of English Premier League for this season and they are just by 3 points away from being relegated in this season. However, in their home ground they have only lost to Manchester City and Liverpool in this season so far but chances are high they would make it three after this fixture because Chelsea is most likely to win this game after they secured their spot in the FA Cup in their last match and they would like to continue their winning run.
