Chelsea travel to the American Express Community stadium on Tuesday, 18th of January, 2022, to take on Graham Potter's Brighton and Hove Albion. The two teams shared the spoils in their first encounter this season, after Chelsea conceded a late equalizer.
Thomas Tuchel's side will be looking to return to winning ways, following the defeat they suffered at the hands of Manchester City on Saturday, 15th of January, 2022. Chelsea currently sit in third position on the English Premier League table and will be looking to pile pressure on second-placed Liverpool and if possible, Manchester City in the race for the title.
In the game against Manchester City last Saturday, I felt that Thomas Tuchel made some costly mistakes when picking his starting eleven, like starting Romelu Lukaku and dropping Mason Mount from the starting line-up. I believe Thomas Tuchel will do everything possible to pick the best line-up against Brighton and Hove Albion tomorrow. Thomas Tuchel could go with a 3:4:3 formation and this line-up against Brighton and Hove Albion.
Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga
Defenders: Malang Sarr could start in the left side of the defence trio, Antonio Rudiger in the middle, while Thiago Silva plays from the right side of the defence.
Midfielders: Ngolo Kante and Jorginho could be used as the two centre midfielders, while Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta plays from the left and right side of the midfield respectively.
Attackers: Chrisian Pulisic could play from the left side from the front three, Mason Mount from the left and Timo Werner should start as the centre forward, in place of Romelu Lukaku.
