Alvaro Morata can let his class tell against Brighton
Seagulls up against it in visit to champions
Kick-off 3pm Tuesday
Chelsea will be disappointed to be so far behind Manchester City but they have lost just one of their last 11 Premier League matches and there is scope for them to push for second spot.
To do that, these are the sorts of fixtures the champions should win comfortably.
While Brighton won at West Ham and Swansea, this game is plainly on a different level and the Seagulls will be up against it after winning just one of their last eight matches.
Blues striker Alvaro Morata should be champing at the bit after missing the goalless draw at Everton on Saturday due to suspension and has looked sharp enough lately to suggest he can have a huge influence.
A Morata to score two or more goals
