Chelsea welcome Brighton and Hove Albion to Stamford Bridge this evening as the home side look to return to the top four of the Premier League.

Thomas Tuchel’s team achieved a huge victory at the weekend, beating top-flight leaders Manchester City 1-0 at Wembley to reach the final of the FA Cup.

A draw tonight would see the Blues go fourth on goal difference, while three points would see them stand alone in third.

Brighton, meanwhile, drew 0-0 with Everton last time out and sit in 16th, six points off the relegation zone, heading into this fixture. Graham Potter’s players also have a game in hand over some of their rivals – and two in hand over others – in this final stretch of the season.
