We are going to see Brighton face injury issues ahead of their clash against Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge. Moreover, the reason why it’s more concerning for the visitors is because they’re at 8th position in the league. Whereas on the other hand, Chelsea are on the 10th position. A loss at the Stamford Bridge would be a direct blow for Brighton’s top 4 dreams. Furthermore, it would also lower their confidence ahead of their Europa league match against AEK Athens.
According to the standard, the seagulls have Tariq Lamptey and Ansu Fati as their latest casualties. Both of the youngsters made their appearance in the first half against Nottingham Forest last weekend. Although their team won the match 3-2, but both of them suffered injuries. If that’s not enough, rumors say that both Lamptey and Fati can be on the side lines for a considerable amount of time.
Brighton are not done here. They have a vast majority of players injured in their squad before their trip to London. Defenders Adam Webster and Pervis Estupinan are also injured. Moreover, midfielders like Solly march and James Milner would also be on the sidelines at the Stamford Bridge. Even the forward line also affected by the injuries. Danny Welbeck, Julio Enciso and Kaoru Mitoma are also injured.
