Brighton v Chelsea – Premier League
Chelsea is back! We kickoff the new season with a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion – a repeat of the game played about two weeks ago.
The Blues traveled to Amex Stadium for a pre-season friendly on August 29, a match that ended 1–1. The game was important both on and off the pitch. With 2,500 fans in the stands, it was the first time supporters were allowed in a Premier League ground since March. Meanwhile, on the field, new signing Timo Werner scored within four minutes of his first start for the club.
Last season’s league fixture on New Year’s Day also ended 1–1 and followed the same pattern: Chelsea scoring early, but denied the win by a late Seagulls equalizer. After two draws in 2020, here’s hoping the third time is the charm, and that we begin the new campaign by taking three points back to London.
Tune in this Monday to cheer on the Blues!
