Saturday, January 20, 2018 – 11:30pm AEDT – Falmer Stadium, Brighton

BRIGHTON need to start thinking about where the wins are going to come from.

The Seagulls have fallen off the pace after a solid half-season and now sit only a game out of the Premier League relegation zone.

They have picked up only two points in their last four games and were disappointing in their 2-0 defeat to West Brom last time out.

An ankle injury to key midfielder Steve Sidwell has not helped matters, but Chris Houghton’s men are otherwise relatively unaffected by issues of availability.

Chelsea head to the south coast on the back of a right old scrap at Norwich City in the FA Cup.

The Blues had Alvaro Morata and Pedro sent off before edging out the Canaries on penalties to reach the fourth round.

Both Spaniards are now ineligible for Saturday’s clash at Falmer Stadium as Chelsea look to vault back into the top four.

Eden Hazard odds and specials

Eden Hazard EPL odds  William Hill CrownBet odds Chelsea betting at Sportsbet Ladbrokes logo
Anytime goalscorer +120 +118 +120 +115
First goalscorer +325 +275 +350 +320
Two goals or more +430 +550 +450
Hat-trick +3000 +3000 +2500

With Morata and Pedro out, the role of marksman-in-chief falls to Eden Hazard.

The Belgian came on as a late substitute against Norwich and scored a vital penalty in the 5-3 shootout win.

That means he should be fresh and ready to return to the starting XI this weekend.

Sportsbet’s +550 odds on Hazard to bag a brace look like great value.

Best bets for Brighton vs. Chelsea

Chelsea have hit a flat spot, but their opponents are faring no better.

We might have given Brighton half a chance if they were playing like they were six weeks ago.

That is not the case, however, and the Blues have too many dangerous players just itching for a chance to fill their boots.

Get on Chelsea for a straightforward win with goals in both halves.
