Brighton and Hove Albion looks to get a result against Chelsea for the second time in three weeks when it hosts the Blues at the Amex Stadium on Tuesday (watch live, 3pm ET on USA Network and online via NBCSports.com).
A trio of wins between the League Cup and FA Cup makes it easy to overlook Chelsea’s three-match winless run in the Premier League, one of which was a 1-1 draw with Brighton at Stamford Bridge to finish 2021.
That day saw Danny Welbeck’s stoppage-time equalizer cancel out Romelu Lukaku’s 28th-minute goal to give Brighton yet another points-split.
