Chelsea News and Form – Will Chelsea win on the south coast?

The Blues earned a come from behind victory at Arsenal on Sunday. In their last eight top-flight games, Chelsea have gone W3 L5. So they have been up and down and they have not secured back-to-back league wins since early September. They have won their last two out on the road though, impressive wins in North London against Tottenham and Arsenal. That has left them with a W7 L3 record out on their travels this season which is very impressive. It has been far better than what they have produced at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have won all five of their away games against teams who will start the new year down inside the bottom eight. Chelsea have averaged 2.4 goals this season out on their travels, but haven’t been sharp at the back. They have conceded at an average of 1.8 goals per road fixture. All but one of their away games have made it above the 2.5 goal line. Chelsea only have the one away clean sheet on their travels and they are on a nine match scoring streak away from the Bridge. Chelsea have been leading at the break in half of their road games (D1 L4) and have opened the scoring in 7 of 10 away from home.

Brighton vs Chelsea Predictions

Chelsea to win: The Blues have good form against Brighton in the Premier League. It’s hit and miss with Chelsea at the moment, but on their day they carry a strong enough attacking presence to claim three points at the Amex.
