Chelsea kick off their Premier League campaign with a trip to Brighton this evening and is looking good for the Blues already.
Frank Lampard’s Blues have splashed out over £200million this summer and big things are expected from them this season.
They take on a Brighton side tonight who finished 15th last season and will be looking to build on that this term.
The 2020/21 Premier League campaign got off to an exciting start over the weekend and this match promises to be another entertaining clash.
