Mauricio Pochettino has made one change to his starting line-up against Brighton & Hove Albion as Malo Gusto returns to the XI.

The Frenchman comes into the side in place of Thiago Silva, with Trevoh Chalobah expected to move across to centre-back.

Ben Chilwell also returns to the matchday squad for the first time since the FA Cup semi-final with Manchester City, as Axel Disasi drops out all together.

Tonight’s match marks Pochettino’s 50th in charge of Chelsea, whilst it will also be Marc Cucurella’s 50th start for the Blues against his former club.

Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Petrovic; Gusto, Chalobah, Badiashile, Cucurella; Gallagher, Caicedo; Madueke, Palmer, Mudryk; Jackson

Substitutes: Bettinelli, Colwill, Thiago Silva, Chilwell, James, Casadei, Ugochukwu, Sterling, Nkunku
