Why you should back Chelsea

The Blues are one of the top defensive teams in the Premier League as they have allowed only 17 goals in their 22 matches. Only Manchester City (13) and Wolverhampton (15) have yielded fewer goals than Chelsea, which has permitted a total of two over its last four games across all competitions. Thomas Tuchel’s squad has not given up more than two goals since a 3-3 draw against Zenit St. Petersburg in a Champions League match on Dec. 8, allowing just nine over its last 11 outings.

Mason Mount leads Chelsea with seven goals during Premier League play, while Jorginho is right behind him with six. The midfielder has scored twice in two of his last five league matches, including a 3-1 victory over Aston Villa on Dec. 26. Striker Romelu Lukaku, who is third on the team with five goals, provided the scoring for Chelsea in its 1-1 draw against Brighton at home on Dec. 29.

Why you should back Brighton & Hove Albion 

The Seagulls are ninth in the standings but have gone four league matches without a loss, winning two and drawing twice. In fact, Brighton has lost just once in its last eight league games (two wins, five draws) and also posted a 2-1 victory over West Ham in the third round of the FA Cup on Jan. 8. The Seagulls have allowed fewer than three goals in 13 straight matches across all competitions since suffering a 4-1 loss against Manchester City on Oct. 23, with opponents scoring more than one just once in their last nine games. 

Neal Maupay leads Brighton in scoring during Premier League action with seven goals. The forward tallied in three consecutive league matches from Dec. 1-26 and also converted in the Seagulls’ FA Cup triumph over West Ham. Danny Welbeck has recorded two goals in seven league matches, with one coming in last month’s draw against the Blues.
