Brighton is going to a new campaign with a full fit squad and Graham Potter is likely to have fresh faces in the back-line lining up against Chelsea.
Goalkeeper Mathew Ryan will retain his place in goal for the Seagulls while Ben White is likely to be given a start alongside Lewis Dunk and Adam Webster in the back-line.
Joel Veltman could be on the right-back for Graham Potter’s side while Bernardo covering the left options.
New signing Adam Lallana could pair up with Davy Propper in midfield to provide the creative push needed while Alireza Jahanbakah stationed on the right, Leandro Trossard on the left, and Neal Maupay as the center-forward.
