BHA vs CHE Dream11 Match Prediction: Brighton will be playing hosts to Chelsea as both sides are recently coming from a win in their respective final fixtures of 2019. Brighton beat Bournemouth 2-0 at home and are now 14th in the league with 23 points, whereas, Chelsea’s late win against Arsenal thanks to Jorginho and Tammy Abraham puts them four points clear at fourth with 35 points. Frank Lampard’s Chelsea unit will be hopeful to bag further three points on Newyears day, while Brighton should bring out their A-game in front of home support.
Date– Wednesday, January 1
Kick-Off– 6:00 PM (IST)
Venue– Falmer Stadium
Graham Potter has minimal injury concerns and should put in a solid starting lineup against Chelsea. Alireza Jahanbaksh started for the very first time in the Premier League and scored the first goal in just three minutes for the hosts. Jahanbaksh will be expected to start once again here. Dale Stephens and Pascal Gross might have to settle for the bench for a consecutive time for the seagulls after an impressive performance against Bournemouth. Jose Izquierdo and Solly March are the only players ruled out due to injury.
Frank Lampard’s three at the back formation didn’t seem to work against Arsenal and could opt for a change in tactics. With Reece James out due to injury, Tariq Lamptey could get to start for the visitors. Marcos Alonso and Christian Pulisic should be assessed prior to kick-off and could have a part to play if fit.
BHA (Expected playing 11) – Ryan; Burn, Dunk, Webster, Montoya, Propper, Bissouma; Jahanbakhsh, Mooy, Trossard; Maupay
CHE (Expected Playing 11) – Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Zouma, Alonso; Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic; Willian, Abraham, Mount
