How to watch Brighton vs Chelsea: The Premier League game is live on TV and online. Here’s how to enjoy some midweek top flight action as Brighton take on Chelsea
This game was supposed to take place on February 8, but here’s one Premier League game that’s taking place before it’s supposed to, rather than way after. The rescheduled fixture comes ahead of Chelsea’s involvement in the FIFA World Club Cup next month.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel isn’t happy about it, but for neutrals, that means there’s a midweek game for Premier League fans, starved by the spate of recent postponements, to enjoy.
Chelsea will travel to the south coast for tonight’s game, looking to atone for the disappointing loss against Manchester City at the weekend, which more or less ended the Blues chase for the title. Brighton came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace on Friday night.
With manager Graham Potter reportedly the subject of interest from Everton, Albion fans will hope a good result tonight doesn’t result in expediating that process.
