Chelsea will be looking to build on their Boxing Day victory when they host Brighton at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday at 7:30pm (UK time).

The Blues came from behind to beat Aston Villa at the weekend to remain six points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City. It was their first win in three Premier League matches but did extend the Blues’ unbeaten league run to four games since losing 3-2 to West Ham earlier this month (two draws). Brighton also won at the weekend, beating Brentford 2-0 to end their 11-match wait for a league victory, and go into their final game of 2021 in ninth.

Chelsea team news

Chelsea were hit with more injury issues in their win over Aston Villa at the weekend, with Thiago Silva and N’Golo Kante both coming off in the second half. Neither will be available for Wednesday’s game, so Chelsea will have to rotate their already hampered squad. There could be a start for Romelu Lukaku though, after the Belgian made a scoring return from the bench against Aston Villa.

Chelsea predicted XI: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; James, Kovacic, Jorginho, Alonso; Mount, Lukaku, Hudson-Odoi.

Joel Veltman could return.
