How Ross Barkley Fared In A Behind Closed Doors Match For Chelsea

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

"Worryingly for them, they've only won one of the last 12 league games and failed to score in eight of them".

The Seagulls lost 2-0 at West Bromwich last week, and they are now without a win in their last four games.

Chelsea know that they can't afford to not leave Brighton without all three points.

Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton on making new signings in January: "I'm sure there will be, but we have got used to these windows where the business is mostly done at the tail end of it more than the beginning".

Antonio Conte's side were involved in a controversial FA Cup replay with Norwich at Stamford Bridge last night.

Pedro and Alvaro Morata are both suspended for the match having been sent off during Chelsea's defeat of Norwich, so how will Conte line his team up at the Amex?

The visitors now occupy the fourth spot with 47 points, only three ahead of Tottenham in fifth.

The Potters have lost their last three league fixtures by an aggregate score of nine-nil and they can now be backed at a price of 13/8 to be relegated.

The primary use of VAR technology is to clarify and correct blatant errors of judgement by a referee and with some people arguing for more use of this technology, others for the need to retain the flow to a game, it's clear it will take time for an agreeable balance to be struck.

Former Chelsea midfielder Steve Sidwell will miss out with an ankle injury.

Conte will be without Morata and Pedro through suspension as previously mentioned, while there are also doubts surrounding the availability of Gary Cahill, Cesc Fabregas and new signing Ross Barkley - who is yet to make his debut for the club. Hence, we are backing a draw as a prediction at the best odds of 3/1 at Paddypower.

Responsibility for leading the attack at Brighton is likely to fall on Eden Hazard, with Batshuayi providing a central striking option from the bench.

For the hosts, Glenn Murray is available at the best odds of 4/1 at Bwin.

While its hard to put an exact number on how many points will be needed to achieve Premier League safety this season, Brighton should be aiming for a very minimum of a point per game from their remaining fixtures.
