Chelsea vs Brighton preview

Chelsea and Brighton are no strangers to each other as they meet in the Premier League Summer Series in the US.

Mauricio Pochettino's men arrive here from North Carolina where they swept aside Hollywood favourites Wrexham 5-0.

It was Poch's first game in charge and, although might not have been the sternest test, it gave a glimpse as to what we can expect from his side this year.

European side Brighton will prove a tougher assignment and this will give a much better indication of how the Blues might look this year, after the disappointment of last.

The Seagulls will be hoping to carry on their form from last year, despite the loss of Alexis Mac Allister and the continued interest in several of their top stars.

Speaking of which, you wonder if the Moises Caicedo negotiations will continue in the stand here, with Chelsea having TWO bids rejected for the Brighton star man….

Chelsea vs Brighton tips

Seagulls swarming

Chelsea remain in a transitional period – while Brighton won't change much from last season.

Team selection has a big bearing on the outcome, so we can only go on what we know.

Brighton won 2-1 at the Bridge in the last meeting, following a 4-1 home victory.

William Hill have boosted the odds of this tip, too!

  • Our tip: Brighton to win and 3+ goals in the game at 4/1 with William Hill

Corner duty

Not too many other available bets when you take the above result into account.

But looking at the Amex encounter last season, both teams managed to hit a significant amount of corners (B8, C7).

In a game with not an awful lot on the line, attacking play is most definitely the way forward.

  • Our tip: Each Team Over 1 Corner In Each Half at 4/1 with William Hill
