Courtois out for Chelsea as Caballero steps in to face Brighton

Barkley 'obsessed' with becoming world-class at Chelsea

After a decent start to the season, Brighton are in bother right now. With the hosts' wing-backs pushed back by their Chelsea counterparts, this allowed the visitors' two inside-forwards to collect possession in pockets of space, and they duly took full advantage.

That the two goals they conceded against West Brom last weekend were scored by centre-backs from set-pieces will have annoyed Hughton because they've generally been good at defending set-pieces.

A disjointed Chelsea performance saw them scrape past the Canaries with nine men left on the field during an entertaining match that was tinged with controversy.

They've won just one of their last five away from Stamford Bridge but can leapfrog Liverpool into third with a win.

England global Barkley, who joined Chelsea for £15million from Everton at the beginning of January, was pictured taking part in agility drills with his Blues colleagues at the club's Cobham training base. I agree with the player on the first yellow card and I do not agree on the second'. It really was vintage Eden Hazard. "I think he has the quality to score more goals".


Antonio Conte has urged Alvaro Morata to rid himself of the "stupid" confidence issues that the Chelsea striker is now going through.

Hazard was not done for the day, putting the game beyond doubt in the 77th minute, coolly finishing past Ryan for league goal 101. If you believe historical data, go with Chelsea at [1.52].

Most of Brighton's attacking play on Saturday came through Schelotto on their right-hand side of the pitch against Marcos Alonso. And under Conte, Chelsea have an excellent record against newly-promoted sides, picking up 25 points from a possible 27.

The margin of victory was tough on Brighton who were unable to improve on a run that has now brought the Seagulls just one win in 13 games. That's a remarkable six out of seven and if that isn't a pattern, then I don't know what is.

However, if the referee had the benefit of referring to the VAR, Brighton may have awarded at least one penalty and Moss would not have had his capability questioned by the home fans. Chelsea made the brighter start but having had the better of the opening half, both teams remained on parity with no goals but a shot each hitting the woodwork.
