Everything you need to know ahead of this tonight’s fixture at the Amex Stadium

Chelsea travel to Brighton looking to bounce back after suffering defeat at Man City to likely end their première ligue title hopes.

The Seagulls are in good form, and rallied from a goal down to rivals Crystal Palace to salvage a deserved point.

The Blues will hope to leapfrog Liverpool into second, while Graham Potter’s side will be looking to boost hopes of a place in Europe next season.

This game is being played tonight due to the European champions’ commitment to play in the Club World Cup, shifting from the original 8 February date, a move that Thomas Tuchel is struggling to come to terms with.

Nouvelles de l'équipe

Lewis Dunk is out (le genou), while Adam Lallana, is a doubt with a knock picked up in the draw with Palace. Jeremy Sarmiento and Enock Mwepu also remain out. Yves Bissouma is on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations, meaning Jakub Moder will likely start.

Tariq Lamptey may return to the starting line-up, and Danny Welbeck will hope to have more joy against the Blues after landing a late equaliser at the Bridge.

Tuchel is without Reece James, Ben Chilwell, Trevor Chalobah and Andreas Christensen.

Edouard Mendy is at the Africa Cup of Nations, so Kepa Arrizabalaga will continue to deputise.
