Brighton will take on Chelsea in one of the prestigious stadiums in London. Chelsea will be looking to get back on track after failing to secure all three points against Manchester City last weekend.

The Blues dropped to third place after losing to Manchester City at the ethihad stadium, thanks to Kevin de Bruyne stunning winner.

The Blues’ next game will be against Brighton at Amex Stadium, and this game is a must-win for Tuchel if he wants to keep his team in the top four. In terms of the title race, I don’t believe any other team, not even Liverpool, can overtake Manchester City. Chelsea’s primary goal should now be to remain in the top four of the league.

Meanwhile, ahead of the game against Brighton, here is my starting lineup to ensure the Blues get back on track.


Kepa will be looking to bounce back from his poor performance against Manchester City. For this game, he should start in goal.

Tuchel, in my opinion, should stick with the center backs he used against Manchester City. Meanwhile, Hudson Odoi should take Alonso’s place at left wing back, with Azpilicueta remaining at right wing back.


Jorginho will almost certainly return to the starting lineup for this game. His absence was felt in the game against Manchester, and I believe he will be an important factor if Chelsea are to win again. For this game, he and Kante should man the midfield.


Lukaku was disappointing against Manchester City, and I believe he should be benched for this game. In his place, Kai Havertz should be reinstated to the starting lineup.

For the attacking wings, Mount and Werner should start in place of Ziyech and Pulisic, who both struggled against Manchester City.

Here is my preferred lineup in a 3-4-3 formation to face Brighton on Tuesday;
