The Blues go into the fixture full of confidence having won our first game of 2022 against West Ham United in the Continental Cup on Wednesday evening.
Brighton are yet to record a WSL win so far in 2022, having lost both of their games in January. They started the year with a 6-0 defeat at home to Manchester City before losing 1-0 to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium last Sunday. The Seagulls go into the fixture having lost their last four WSL matches by an aggregate score of 11-0.
Brighton & Hove Albion Women v Chelsea Women head-to-head record
In all competitions, we have won seven of the nine matches against Brighton and have never lost away from home against the Seagulls.
Brighton have only beaten the Blues once in six WSL games, ending our record 33-match unbeaten run in February last year.
Next up for the Blues
Chelsea’s next test after Brighton will be West Ham United as we are set to play them twice in seven days. The fixture against the Irons was originally due to be played in December, but was postponed due to Covid-19 in the Blues camp. The game takes place on Wednesday evening at Kingsmeadow, 7pm kick-off (UK time).
