Low Scoring Contest Expected As Brighton Host Chelsea In The Premier League

Saturday 20th January 2018, 12.30pm - Brighton v Chelsea (Amex Stadium)

The Premier League weekend gets off to a flyer on Saturday lunchtime as Brighton host Chelsea at the Amex Stadium live on Sky Sports. An important game for both teams, the Seagulls will be looking for one of the biggest wins of the season to stop their slide down the table.

  • Brighton have only been involved in 7 BTTS matches this term in the league from 23 games - 30.43%
  • Chelsea have only scored one goal in their last four matches in all competitions

Chelsea The Clear Favourites for the Win

Chelsea have been struggling of late with no wins in their last four matches, and only one goal during that period.

That came against Norwich in mid-week when they scraped past their Championship opponents on penalties in the FA Cup, and that will be a major concern for Conte. Morata and Pedro both saw red in mid-week and will miss the trip to the south coast but despite that, the away team are understandably the favourites.

Chelsea can be backed at 11/18 with Ladbrokes to beat the Seagulls, who themselves have been struggling of late.

Albion are without a win in four matches, and fell to an awful defeat at West Brom last weekend to see them slip to 16th place in the table. The concerns are growing at the Amex, and that means they are as big as 11/2 with Paddy Power to claim the three points this weekend.

Low Scoring Affair Expected At The Amex Stadium

We have already mentioned Chelsea's struggles in front of goal in recent weeks and with Morata set to miss this match, Conte will be scratching his head.

The goals have dried up since the turn of the year for the Premier League champions, and it is a similar story down at Brighton.

Only Swansea City have scored less goals in the top flight than Brighton this term, and that is a worrying stat for Chris Hughton. That trend continues from a punting point of view with only seven of their 23 games since August ending with both teams on the score-sheet, which is the joint lowest percentage in the division.

With that in mind, backing against both teams scoring looks the safe punt here at 8/11 with Bet Victor.

Chelsea are clearly not in the best form but they should still be too strong for their relegation threatened opponents, but don't expect this to be an entertaining game!
