Chelsea Predicted Lineup Against Brighton

Chelsea is preparing and getting ready to face Brighton & Hove Albion in matchday 12 of the English Premier League on Saturday, October 29.

Chelsea Manager, Graham Potter will be facing off with his old club, Brighton and this could pose a difficult test for him. The manager will return to his old stadium when Chelsea travels to play Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium. The Blues side is presently 5th in the English Premier league table and is hoping forward to celebrating a win after last weekend’s 1-1 stalemate with the Manchester Red Devils, Manchester United.

Kalidou Koulibaly returned to activity a day after the Champions League game against Salzburg, but it is uncertain whether he will be fit enough to play against Brighton.

As a precaution, Mateo Kovacic was taken off against Salzburg, feeling some distress in his calf, but he could be considered as part of the setup plan against Brighton.

Kepa Arrizabalaga’s brilliant form continues to keep the Senegalese, Edouard Mendy out of the field in goal, having 92% saves in the league according to Premier League Opta Stat since he was introduced in the games following an injury to the Edouard Mendy early in the season.

Severe injuries to Reece James, N’Golo Kante, and Wesley Fofana mean that the three players will not have the opportunity to play again until after the 2022 Qatar World Cup at the very least.
