In Brief

To seek first Premier League home win after confidence-boosting first home win of season achieved on Wednesday. Rudiger, Emerson and Loftus-Cheek sidelined. Giroud doubtful, but Christensen passed fit.

Looking Back

Chelsea hammered Grimsby 7:1 at home in League Cup on Wednesday, with this first home win for Lampard as manager. Batshuayi shone in that game with 2 goals and 2 assists.

What still worries a lot is fact that Blues are yet to keep clean sheet this season, in any competition. This main reason why only 3 points collected from 3 home Premier League matches so far.

Looking Ahead

Coach Lampard continues to have issues in defence with main left-back Emerson and best centre-back Rudiger out. At least Christensen welcomed back after injury.

Giroud battles sickness, but Abraham destined to lead attack anyway after 7 goals scored in first 6 rounds. Hudson-Odoi will be good option off the bench from now on, he made comeback from injury on Wednesday.

In Brief

Used kindergarten in midweek and logically lost in League Cup. Without Premier League win since season-opener. Trossard and Duffy amongst 5 sidelined players. Also have March and Jahanbakhsh doubtful. Maupay and Murray passed fit though.

Looking Back

Brighton gave senior debuts to as many as 9 teenagers on Wednesday night and logical 1:3 home loss vs. Aston Villa in the League Cup was the outcome. It seemed the manager was eager to end presence in this competition as soon as possible.

Seagulls are without league win since round 1, but worth mentioning that both their clean sheets had come on the road and only away defeat so far vs. Man City.

Looking Ahead

Coach Potter didn’t risk slightly injured strikers Murray and Maupay in midweek, but now both set to feature. March also could play if he passes fitness test. Duffy will miss though, he limped off pitch in midweek.

Trossard amongst 5 long-term absentees and his explosiveness on the wing bitterly missed. Jahanbakhsh back in training and 50/50 for this weekend.

Points of Interest

Maupay only player with more than 1 goal scored so far.
