Premier League Preview: Matchday Twenty-four

In or out? Keep up-to-date with all the latest team news and stats ahead of the weekend

Antonio Conte will be waiting to hear on the availability of Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas who are both struggling with hamstring injuries but could make it back in time.

The hosts have the luxury of being able to call on a almost full squad, with only Steve Sidwell unavailable as he faces a sustained period on the sidelines with a long-term ankle injury.

Conte's men have drawn all of their last four games in all competition with three of them goalless.

Ultimately, the Blues should have just a bit too much class and quality for their opponents, and should be able to leave the South coast with three points under their belt.

Chelsea are without forwards Alvaro Morata and Pedro, who were both sent off during the FA Cup penalty-shootout win over Norwich on Wednesday. I think it has to be.

Brighton have lost only two of their 11 Premier League home fixtures (W3, D6).

They have conceded a league-high 16 goals from set-pieces in 2017-18.

Conte will be hoping his new signing returns to match fitness as soon as possible, so he can call upon his services with his side lacking goals of late. The Belgian winger-turned-striker has been in inspired form for the Blues this season but has only one goal to show for his last seven league appearances.

Where these points are going to come from is the big question now facing Chris Hughton following a poor run which has returned only six points from the nine games played since the start of December.

Chelsea have won just one of their last five away league games (D3 L1), drawing each of the last two.

Most of Chelsea's post-game chatter revolved around the fact VAR was not used in deciding whether Willian deserved a penalty or a yellow card when he fell under a challenge from Timm Klose. It is not right to talk about the characteristics of other players.

However, they have been defeated in all six league matches this season against the current top six, scoring once.

Having secured their first league win since August with victory over Brighton last weekend West Bromwich Albion take on an Everton side suffering a slump of their own.
