Chelsea 17/10 to beat Brighton in Saturday’s Premier League battle
Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea win
Odds: 17/10 @ 888sport
Hoping to find a route back into the top-four this weekend, Chelsea will make the trip to Brighton on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has been a recent blip, Brighton have the feel of a side seeking a much-needed boost. In their opening 11 Premier League matchups so far this season, they have recorded four wins, three draws and four defeats, scoring 15 and conceding 14 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 15 from a possible 33, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat ninth in the standings and holding just a one-point buffer from slipping out of the top-half. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 3-1 loss away at defending champions Manchester City, Brighton have now failed to win any of their previous five Premier League contests. Likewise, it should also be noted, Saturday’s hosts have failed to win back-to-back matchups on home soil.
As for the visitors, extending on their unbeaten run earlier in the week while on Champions League duties, Chelsea will be looking to lay down another marker here. In their opening 11 Premier League matchups so far this season, they have recorded six wins, three draws and a pair of defeats, scoring 16 and conceding 11 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 21 from a possible 33, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat fifth in the table and with just their goal difference keeping them outside of the Champions League spots. As for their recent run of results, last seen earlier in the week picking up a 2-1 victory away at Salzburg, Chelsea are unbeaten in each of their previous nine matchups across all formats. Given the recent gulf in class between the two sides, an away victory can be found at appealing odds here.
