Chelsea's Premier League campaign gets underway with a tricky away trip to the south Coast, as Brighton await on Monday evening. Little more than two weeks after their 1-1 draw at the Amex, the Blues return in a competitive capacity and target a statement win away to last season's strugglers.

Can Graham Potter's men spring an unwelcome surprise against a side that narrowly secured a top-four finish last term? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Brighton vs Chelsea Betting Tips

Frank Lampard confirmed there are multiple absentees for Monday's trip to Brighton. Three recent acquisitions are among those who won't feature: Ben Chilwell (fitness), Hakim Ziyech (knee) and Thiago Silva (not yet training). Billy Gilmour (knee) is targeting a return in two months' time after summer surgery, though it's not all doom and gloom.

Lampard can call upon captain Cesar Azpilicueta and the influential Christian Pulisic after both sustained hamstring injuries in their FA Cup final defeat. Pulisic was among their best players after play resumed in June, while Azpilicueta was a model of consistency in defence as usual.

There will be plenty of eyes on Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, should both start as expected. The latter scored after just four minutes against Brighton on August 29, while Havertz is highly-rated following starring both for Bayer Leverkusen and Germany.

Brighton will be determined to send Chelsea home empty-handed, especially with one of their academy graduates already a mainstay. Tariq Lamptey joined in a £3m deal eight months ago and will be encouraged to start the new campaign strongly against his former teammates.

Last season's top goalscorer Neal Maupay (10, three assists) and summer signing Adam Lallana are among those who will similarly be motivated to create havoc for a shaky Blues backline.

Brighton vs Chelsea Correct Score Predictions

Anything less than a Chelsea win here would be seen as a disastrous start to the new campaign. Lampard's side have lofty ambitions this term – whether they want to admit it or not – and are unbeaten in seven previous H2H meetings (won five, drawn two) against the Seagulls.
