Chelsea will host Brighton &Hove Albion at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, December 29th in Matchday 20 of the 2021/22 Premier league season, with the goal of leapfrogging Liverpool in second place and closing in on Man City at the top of the League. On Sunday, the blues put in an outstanding effort against Aston Villa at Villa Park, winning 3-1, thanks to goal from Lukaku and Jorginho. Brighton, on the other hand is currently in ninth position on the EPL table. They will hoping for a draw in this match. We will take a look at the lineup Thomas Tuchel might choose for this match after losing two of his crucial players (Thiago Silva and Ngolo Kante) to injury during their match against Villa.

The German coach could opt for a small adjustment in formation by employing the 4-4-2 formation that helped them win their last game. Between the sticks, Edouard Mendy might make his final appearance of the season ahead of the AFCON in a few days. Antonio Rudiger and Trevoh Chalobah might form a defensive partnership with Marcos Alonso and Reece James continuing to play in the right and left-back positions respectively. Due to Kante’s absence, Jorginho will occupy his customary defensive midfield place, which might be joined by Croatian international Kovacic. Mason Mount might be shifted to the attacking lines left wing, while Hakim Ziyech could play on the right wing.

Christian Pulisic might be paired alongside Romelu Lukaku, who has finally found the back of the net after a lengthy drought. The blues supporters and manager were to see their mega-money transaction clinch a goal and then contributed to the final goal after being taken down in the 18-yard box. Most blues supporters and neutral fans are baffled on how Thomas Tuchel came up with such a fantastic plan. A repeat of his performance, though, is considered to be the key to unlock a staunch Brighton side that concedes less goals during their games.
