Chelsea vs Brighton prediction on April 21, 2021. West Ham’s unexpected 3-2 defeat against Newcastle United and Liverpool’s recent full-win streak has made the race to the top 4 extremely attractive. Chelsea has a chance to win tickets to the Champions League if they beat Brighton. After impressive performances in the UEFA Champions League and FA Cup, there is no reason for Chelsea to miss the chance to score points against Brighton.
Chelsea will be in control of this match even though most of their players are not in the best form. Beat Brighton is what Coach Tuchel’s team is aiming for at home. Chelsea are in great spirits after reaching the final of the FA Cup and the semi-finals of the European Cup and currently have the opportunity to enter the top 4, so with the current correlation, there is no reason for the Blues to lose points at their home.
Mateo Kovacic and Andreas Christensen will not be playing. Meanwhile, manager Tuchel is expected to make a few changes from the squad that beat Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final. Edouard Mendy, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Christian Pulisic will return to the starting lineup.
Brighton is currently in 16th place, with 2 wins in the last 5 matches. Coach Graham Potter’s team is very close to the group holding the red light, only 33 points with 7 matches ahead. Brighton is underperforming Chelsea, they have lost 12 and drew 2 of the previous 14 matches.
Tariq Lamptey and Solly March have not recovered from injuries. Meanwhile, Percy Tau left open her ability to play.
Asian Bet – Chelsea vs Brighton prediction
The irony fate is that it is likely that West Ham itself will fall out of the top 4 in the same way that Chelsea fell and created conditions for them two weeks ago.
This is a very good opportunity for coach Thomas Tuchel and his team to overcome the direct competitor for the ticket to the UEFA Champion League. After a reluctant substitute in the middle of the season, Chelsea seemed to have suffered nothing in this season, but the green of London is playing extremely well with a series of extremely sublimated matches in the past time.
Having struggled for 8th place on the rankings, they are now in 5th place, competing for a ticket to the C1 next season. Recently, they also reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Champion League and also won against Man City in the first leg of the FA Cup semi-final.
Chelsea vs Brighton Prediction:
- Choose Chelsea -0.25 (HT)
- Choose Chelsea -1.0 (FT)
Currently ranked 16th on the Premier League table is Brighton, Chelsea’s opponent in the next round. This team has 33 points after 31 matches. They are equal to Burnley but are on top thanks to the goal/loss difference index.
With the more relegated team being Fulham up to 6 points, but playing less than 2 matches. The opportunity for this team to accelerate and increase the distance with the group holding the red light is extremely positive. If they make good use of this opportunity, they can be assured that their team will stay in England’s highest league next season because the Premier League has reached the final rounds and their distance. with the relegation group, it is safe enough.
Choose Chelsea (FT)
Over/Under Bet – Chelsea vs Brighton prediction
With only 1 point behind the top 4 or West Ham themselves but playing less than 1 game, the chances for Chelsea to rise and step into the top 4 are enormous. Currently, the Blues are ranked 5th on the rankings with 54 points gained after 31 matches.
A few rounds ago, it was Chelsea that dominated fourth place, but a bitter and somewhat unlucky defeat against West Brom turned the tide. They lost to the team that was struggling to stay relegated with a score of 2-5. Thereby officially falling out of the top 4 and letting the dark horse of this season, West Ham rise.
Thinking that with the sublimation of former Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard, West Ham will continue to fly high and maintain his 4th place on the rankings, but in the most recent match, a similar scenario. Chelsea’s defeat happened again, but this time, the ill-fated protagonist was West Ham.
