Chelsea big favorites against Brighton on Monday
Having finished only fourth last season in the Premier League, Chelsea and Frank Lampard need to make a great start to this season. This is only the second season that Frank Lampard in in charge and he has made good changes to the team during the summer. He needs to deliver a trophy, based on the money he has been allowed to spend this summer.
Chelsea have already spent £200million in this summer transfer window but there is a really exciting look about the squad, especially in the attacking department, heading into the season opener.
Timo Werner, who scored 28 Bundesliga goals for RB Leipzig in 2019-20 joined Chelsea during the summer. Chelsea scored 69 goals last season in the Premier League and with the help on Werner the team is looking really strong offensively.
Hakim Ziyech and Kai Havertz have also been added to the ranks, with the duo scoring a combined 18 league goals between them last season, and added to this are the healthy team of Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud.
Lampard is creating a attack-minded side and it will be tough for Brighton, who conceded 54 times in 2019-20, to stop Chelsea from scoring heavily on Monday evening.
Making matters even worse, Brighton have never beaten Chelsea in the Premier League, losing five and drawing one of the six previous meetings. To start to season against a team like Chelsea that have everything to prove in the opener will be too hard.
Our Tip for the match
We predict that Chelsea will win the game and Werner to score in the game. Also ” Brighton not to score” is a really good option as the team has struggled against Chelsea always
