I'm playing on CHELSEA. In some instances, off games against Porto in Champions League and Man City in the FA Cup, Chelsea could potentially letdown for a league game against the 16th place team. This isn't one of those instances. Its been a long climb back but the the Blues have put themselves in the position that they wanted to get to. A victory here puts them into the top 4. They're currently in fifth, a point behind West Ham. Having fought so hard to pull its way up, the Blues will not be denied against lowly Brighton. There will be no letdown. The Blues have beaten the Seagulls 12 of the past 14 meetings. While the schedule is tough, the price reflects that. Chelsea could easily be a heavier favorite. Keep in mind that they've both played 31 games. Not only has Chelsea conceded fewer goals but its also outscored the Seagulls by a 50-33 margin. Expect the Blues to dig deep and come away with the important win.
