Chelsea’s Predicted Lineup against Brighton
Tuchel’s set to continue that run in order to secure a place in the Champions League next season. This is even though there’s been a lot of issues regarding the newly formed league – European Super League. However, the host won’t let that bother them as there’s still a lot to play for this season. This is according to Thomas Tuchel’s interview
According to today’s match below is the predicted line-up that Tuchel may decide to start against Brighton.
The Spanish goalkeeper is set to keep his place between the sticks for the blues. It is after a wonderful performance against Manchester City in the FA cup last weekend. Thomas Tuchel also hinted that Kepa may keep his place tonight.
“I think everybody, including the two other goalkeepers, were wishing for a top performance and a clean sheet from him (Kepa).I’m very happy for him that he delivered and it is very likely that he has another match against Brighton maybe.”
Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Zouma
Zouma may be called back to the 3-man defence. It is after Thiago Silva limped off during the weekend and Tuchel won’t want to risk him against Brighton tonight.
CHO, Kante, Jorgihno, Alonso
In the 4 – man midfield Tuchel may decide to give CHO and Alonso a chance. The two have not been playing much recently due to the good form of both Reece James and Ben Chilwel.
Mount, Havertz, Pulisic
Both Pulisic and Havertz are set to be called back to the starting eleven. They were given a rest against Manchester City, even though Pulisic played some minutes in that game.

Arsenal Suffers Embarrassing Defeat against Brentford in Season’s Opener.
Brentford were in their best form on Friday night, 13th August.
They managed to win a 2-0 in Premier League encounter, beating Arsenal.
The gunners were so poor in this premier league match.
It was notes that Mikel Arteta started the new season on a disappointing note.
Sergi Canos and Christian Noergaard scored the two goals that condemned Arsenal into a defeat into their opening game.
Brentford marked their return to English top-flight with an emphatic 2-0 victory in the opening game at the Community Stadium.
The team hadn’t played top-flight football in more than seven decades.
On their return, they were energetic, and tactical.
The hosts started the match impressively, but only at the 22nd minute did they net their goal.
This was through Sergi Canos who drove his shot low past Bernard Leno.
There was some slight controversy in the goal.
This is because Arsenal players felt the ball had gone out of the play in the build-up to the goal.
Arsenal started the game with some dominance in possession.
However, they looked blunt going forward in the game.
Its assumed to have happened that way because of the absence of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, who both missed the match through illness.
Once Brentford realized the visitors had little going on for them in front of goal, they took the game by the neck.
They controlled the tempo and created chances for themselves.
White was partly responsible for the second goal as he failed to defend a long throw-in which floated dangerously into the box for Norgaard to head home.
