Chelsea have shown signs of promise this season but are yet to show consistency in the EPL. Manager Frank Lampard is likely to continue his scheme of offering youngsters a chance to impress this season. Graham Porter will stick to his guns as Brighton make a tricky trip to Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Here are the predicted starting line-ups for Chelsea vs Brighton matchday seven.
Frank Lampard's Chelsea have won all four of their EPL games against Brighton scoring 11 goals and conceding just one. Meanwhile, Brighton have taken just one point from 13 away games in the Premier League against the 'big six' (W0 D1 L12). Chelsea will hope that they can take all three points on home soil as they field a strong XI that consists of Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Kepa Arizzabalaga and N'Golo Kante. The two youngsters - Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham are also likely to feature in the starting XI at Stamford Bridge.
Graham Porter will hope to pull off a rather unlikely win against Chelsea on September 28. Pressure will be on centre-backs Lewis Dunk and Adam Webster to curb the Chelsea attackers who will look to dominate from the word go. Neal Maupay will look to add to his tally of two goals from six matches in the EPL. Expect an exciting encounter for neutral fans at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
