Although they are ranked 3rd in the table and only 3 points behind the 2nd ranked team Liverpool, in terms of home performance, Chelsea is only ranked 5th with 5 wins, 3 draws and 1 loss. Worse yet, the Blues have no longer maintained their high form as at the beginning of the season, as evidenced by the recent 4 home matches they have won only 1 match, which is a tough victory over Leeds United with the score was 3-2, a match where they even had some luck when they were awarded 11m twice, including the goal in the 4th minute of injury time.
On the opposite side, Brighton is one of the teams that owns a very good away form when they have only received 1 defeat after the last 8 matches, the remaining 7 matches they won 2, drew 5. In addition, should remember that in the last 8 away matches, the Seagulls once held Liverpool at Anfield with a score of 2-2 and not long ago made the army of coach David Moyes have to divide the points. The two away victories that Brighton has are against Burnley and Brentford in the first two home matches of this season.
