Brighton head into the game in strong form having lost just one of their last 10 competitive matches and with the memory of their hard fought 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on December 29 still fresh in the mind.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have won just one of their last six Premier League matches, a run which has seen their Premier League title push all but mathematically ended, while defensively the Blues have been fragile, keeping a solitary clean sheet in their last 10 league clashes.
