Mauricio Pochettino got his first taste of action as Chelsea manager on Wednesday as his side thrashed Wrexham 5-0 in Chapel Hill. Attention now turns to the so-called ‘Premier League Summer Series’, a mini-tournament in the United States featuring Chelsea, Brighton, Aston Villa, Brentford, Fulham and Newcastle.

Pochettino played a number of youngsters against Wrexham earlier this week as he assesses the full breadth of his Chelsea armoury, with Ian Maatsen getting on the scoresheet twice — but it was largely the big boys who delivered on the day, with new signing Christopher Nkunku getting his first goal for the club.

Brighton are preparing for their first season in Europe, and Roberto De Zerbi will be determined to use these summer months getting his squad into shape. New signings Mahmoud Dahoud, James Milner, Joao Pedro and Bart Verbruggen will all be itching to get some minutes against Chelsea this weekend.

Chelsea vs Brighton match stats

Quite incredibly, Brighton are unbeaten against Chelsea in their last five games, completing the double over them last season. Their only other previous win against the Blues prior to 2022/23 was their first-ever meeting against the club in 1933. It’s been one-way traffic since then bar those last five matches.

Pochettino will be itching to give Nkunku some more minutes following his late flurry against Wrexham on his unofficial debut. The French forward scored 23 goals last season across all competitions for RB Leipzig so should really bring some attacking firepower to Pochettino’s frontline, as he did at Chapel Hill on Wednesday.
