Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Brighton and Chelsea face each other at Amex Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Saturday’s program. The Seagulls made a flying start to the season, but they do not seem to be at the top of their game at the moment, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last four league fixtures. A man to watch in the home team will be Leandro Trossard, who scored his sixth goal of the season in a 3-1 loss to Man City, while both Moder and Colwill remain in the recovery room.
Kaoru Mitoma is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. The Blues, on the other hand, were on the verge of beating Man Utd at Stamford Bridge, but the Red Devils eventually saved one point. Anyhow, away win should be considered as new Chelsea boss Graham Potter is well aware of his former side’s weaknesses. All Wesley Fofana, Reece James, and N’Golo Kante should miss out with injuries for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Joel Veltman):
Joel Veltman is a Dutch footballer who was born in Velsen on 15 January, 1992. Veltman started his youth career at VV Ijmuiden and in 2011 he was spotted by Ajax scouts. In the 2012/2013 Eredivisie campaign he played for the first team and he made seven league appearances for the Amsterdammers back then.
The centre back, who plays as a right back as well made six appearances for Jong Ajax as well, scoring one goal for the team in the Eerste Divisie. Veltman has 8 caps for Netherlands U20 team and he made his debut for the first team in November 2013 against Colombia. He started the match and he played 90 minutes in the goalless draw with the South American side.
Joel Veltman represented the Oranje at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. It has to be noted that the Dutch defender made 34 league appearances for Ajax in the 2015/2016 Eredivisie campaign, scoring one goal in the process. In the 2013/2014 season he won his second Eredivisie trophy with Ajax.
Highlighted Team (Chelsea):
Over the years Chelsea have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the English Premier League. Roberto Di Matteo helped the team win their first ever Champions League trophy (2011/2012), but it has to be noted that they were more than fortunate to beat Bayern Munich in the title game.
Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash.
After lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, the Blues largely struggled in the next campaign, which saw Jose Mourinho’s second spell with the club come to an end, and Antoine Conte went over to take the reigns for the 2016/2017 season.
