Brighton & Hove Albion will be hoping to pile further misery on Chelsea when they head to Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side capitulated against Newcastle United last Saturday as they fell to a 4-1 defeat in the north east, bringing an end to their three-game unbeaten run which included an emphatic win over Spurs and draw against Premier League holders Manchester City.

It was an afternoon of misery at St. James’ Park, with Chelsea finishing the game with 10-men after captain Reece James was sent off, and Pochettino is demanding a response to ensure his team finish the weekend in the top half.

“It was a tough week for everyone,” reflected Pochettino ahead of facing Brighton.

“I am very happy because they’ve reacted very well.

“When you watch the game, it was worse than my feelings after the game. I was tough with them inside and outside.”

He added: “Even if it was really, really tough in training and meetings. Sometimes these situations help a lot to improve.”

Here is what the Absolute Chelsea team believes the outcome of the Premier League clash between Chelsea vs Brighton & Hove Albion will be.

Matt Debono: Chelsea 2-1 Brighton & Hove Albion
