England: Premier League– Round 24
Match start: 13:30 (GMT+1)
Chelsea will play away match in Brighton and for defending champions it will be rather difficult meeting. Yes, Brighton is an underdog that has only currently got into the EPL but no club has easy game there. Chelsea is in a quite good form but we don’t see that last year's strength in its game and this is the reason why the team of Conte has some difficulties in fighting for a champion title.
The start of the current championship for Brighton was very successful but closer to the middle of the season everything has fallen into place. Yes, Chris Hughto’s team is now far from the relegation zone but only 3 points separate them from the terrible line and this is so little for such tournament as the EPL. Nevertheless, Brighton has many experienced football players who are capable to achieve good results. Brighton in not in the best form in last matches (4 rounds without victories) and this fact can lead to getting into a relegation zone.
Antonio Conte’s team reminds Real Madrid that also experiences some kind of recession of a form after a magnificent last season. Chelsea takes the 4th line at the tournament bracket and has all chances to fight for the 2nd place but not for the title which for 99.9% will be gained by Manchester City. The Blues have good squad but the teamwork and stability aren't Chelsea's strongest sides this season. However, Conte has a lot of time to improve current situation.
Despite some difficulties in gaining winning results Chelsea is the top club with huge squad resources. Brighton’s form is not perfect and this fact makes from Chelsea big favorite.
