Chelsea team news vs Brighton: Trossard to be assessed
Albion round off 2021 with a trip to Chelsea as they look to build on their 2-0 win over Brentford on Boxing Day.
The first victory in 12 Premier League matches saw Albion move up to ninth in the top tier and was their eighth league win at the Amex in 2021.Information Guide Nigeria
Chelsea sit third after coming from behind to beat Aston Villa 3-1 on Boxing Day, six points behind leaders Manchester City.
Thomas Tuchel’s men have a better points return at this stage of the campaign than in any of their previous four seasons.
Comparatively, Albion have achieved their best return after 17 games (23 points) in the Premier League era.
Leandro Trossard was withdrawn against Brentford at half-time, with Graham Potter confirming the move was precautionary because of a tight hamstring.
“It will depend on Leo’s recovery because he’s not been feeling the best this week. We’ll see how he does in the next 24 to 48 hours,” said Potter. Yves Bissouma is available after suspension.
Our last meeting
Albion secured a point at Stamford Bridge back in April, drawing 0-0. The evening was somewhat overshadowed by pre-match protests against the European Super League, but it proved to be an impressive draw for Albion.

Chelsea player to watch
Jorginho is the man who makes the Chelsea midfield tick and has also taken on the role of captain in Cesar Azpilicueta’s absence. A Euro 2020 winner with Italy in the summer, he finished third in this year’s Balon d’Or vote behind Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and PSG’s Lionel Messi. He scored two penalties in Sunday’s win over Villa.
