helsea vs Brighton & Hove Albion Live Streaming Premier League 2021 Chelsea vs. Brighton time: With Chelsea’s attack misfiring again, forward Romelu Lukaku came on at halftime for his first severe minutes in a month, and it made all the difference.

While there’s plenty to criticize Chelsea’s performances over the last month, there is no doubting that the involvement of Lukaku is a game-changer for the Blues, and with him, in the lineup, they are genuine titles contenders. And his return came just in time: The Blues sit nine points back of leaders Manchester City and no longer have any room for error.

That will be tested as draw masters Brighton Hove & Albion come to town, winners of just one game since September, but a team with a knack for sharing the spoils with the stronger clubs.

Brighton has held Arsenal and Liverpool to draws, with the latter result coming at Anfield, so a trip to Stamford Bridge won’t rattle the visitors.

Brighton’s victory over Brentford in its last outing ended an 11-match winless run, but the club only lost three times in that span as well.

Sitting 11th in the table, the Seagulls have found vital goals when needed to secure points and could present a challenge for a Chelsea side not playing its best football of the season and with ongoing personnel issues.
