A fourth home game on the bounce, in three separate competitions, sees Chelsea take on Brighton and Hove Albion, at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

After the fine 7-1 home victory, against Grimsby Town in the Carabao Cup, Frank Lampard will be hoping that his charges will gain their first home Premier League win of the season against a Brighton side that sits in 15th place in the table.

Against Grimsby, Lampard chose to field a youthful team and it’ll be interesting to see if any of those that impressed will start today, although, here at Vital Chelsea, we suspect the more familiar and experienced faces will make up Frank’s starting eleven.

As usual, we’re running our Match Day Moments feature where we invite you to offer your opinions, in our comment facility, on a variety of subjects including, but not limited to:

1 – The build-up to the fixture.

2 – The starting eleven selected by Frank Lampard.

3 – The action as it happens at Stamford Bridge.

4 – Your thoughts in the immediate period that follows the sounding of the final whistle.

Let’s hope we’ve all got smiles on our faces come the end of the evening.

  • Really fired up for this one. Anything short of a victory today is unacceptable going by recent performances. Lamps should be bold enough to play hungry players who are ready to give their all. Common Chelsea

  • 1-0 , penalty obtained by sustained pressing … Much needed as we seemed to have left our scoring boots behind

  • A combination of a toothless attack and poor finishing made for an unconvincing display bit 3pts and a clean sheet at the Bridge is always welcomed. Our transition from defence to attack is somewhat too slow for the EPL. Having Barkley and Alonslow on the pitch at the same time is a catalyst for a low tempo match.

    • Willian and Pedro are still going to cost us lots of goals and points as long as they start together, It’s either one or the other. How many chances did they create for Tammy today? Probably none because they are both glory hunters who would rather be on the scoresheet. Tammy missed clear chances today but it is their jobs to continue create those chances. How many chances have Aubameyang squandered for Arsenal and yet they keep playing passes to him? Lamps need to tell them to keep feeding Tammy because that’s the only way he will get goals and he has proven that he sure know how to put them in the back of the net.

  • Went to game yesterday thought we played well enough to win and keep a clean sheet but we didn’t kill them off we created chances but at only 1.0 they started to creep back into it around 70minutes and you could feel the uneasiness around the stadium thing is I’m afraid we are going to get this a few more times yet but I for one am feeling very positive about the future with these young players one more thing and I’ve got to mention it is jourginho he must have won over a few of his critics worked hard and seems to be getting much more in tune with the vigours of the premier

  • I was there at the match, and I didn’t really see a wrong move, short of the near goal on corner by Brighton. I was actually super impressed by Tomori. My god, that kid is so fast… All ye naysayers need to ease up. This isn’t our season. But if we don’t get all our kids bought out by foreign clubs and domestic rivals, this will be a badass squad in time.
