Premier League: Chelsea v Brighton betting preview, odds, tips & TV details
Blues fans turning against Maurizio Sarri
Chelsea needed the assistance of some controversial decisions to secure a hard-fought 2-1 victory at Cardiff on Sunday but they are unlikely to leave anything to chance against Brighton at Stamford Bridge.
At the weekend Maurizio Sarri was the subject of some negative chanting from Chelsea fans upset with his team selection and refusal to bring on Callum Hudson-Odoi.
However, Sarri's Blues are back into the top-four reckoning and should be far too strong for Brighton, who have lost ten of 15 Premier League away games this season.
