Chelsea have been strong at home against Brighton of late, registering five victories and a pair of draws in the last seven meetings at Stamford Bridge. Kai Havertz leads the team with seven goals this season and converted in back-to-back matches prior to the Blues’ current four-game drought.
The 23-year-old German, who netted eight goals in 29 contests last season, also scored Chelsea’s lone goal in their loss in October. Raheem Sterling is second on the Blues with four goals during league play in his first season with the club. However, the 28-year-old winger did tally in the second leg of Chelsea’s Round of 16 tie against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on March 7 to help the side advance to the quarterfinals.
