After failing to win any of their last five games across competitions, Chelsea will be desperate for a victory when they welcome Brighton to Stamford Bridge for a Premier League 2022-23 clash on Saturday, April 15. The match will start at 7:30 PM IST.
Both teams will be hoping for a win as they look to seal a spot in Europe, however, the hosts, under the tutelage of caretaker manager Frank Lampard, need a positive result from this encounter more than the Seagulls.
CHE vs BHA Dream11 prediction for Premier League 2022-23
Based on how both teams have fared this season, Brighton will head into this fixture as slight favourites somewhat surprisingly. The Seagulls are enjoying a wonderful campaign and find themselves seventh in the Premier League standings with 46 points from 28 games besides also being a part of the FA Cup semi-final lineup.
Chelsea, on the other hand, is 11th in the standings having accumulated 39 points from 30 games. They were beaten by Brighton earlier this season and will be eager to make amends. However, they will be aware that getting a win will be easier said than done against a confident Brighton side, who at the very least look capable of coming away with a point from west London.
CHE vs BHA Dream11 team tips for Premier League 2022-23
Top tip: Best forward - Evan Ferguson
One of the breakthrough stars of the ongoing Premier League campaign, Evan Ferguson’s goal-scoring exploits for Brighton will have put other big clubs on notice. Despite making just 27 appearances this season, Ferguson has scored 14 goals and provided five assists across all competitions. A skillful frontman who also has a physical presence, Ferguson’s ability to bully defences and score goals makes him an asset for any fantasy team.
Top tip: Best midfielder - Mitoma
Another revelation in the Premier League with the Seagulls this season, Kaoru Mitoma has been a livewire on the pitch for Brighton and is a constant threat to opposition defences while going forward. He’s scored 10 times and provided seven assists across competitions, making him a huge threat against Chelsea’s often frail defence. Adding him to your fantasy team is certain to bode well thanks to his ability to make a telling difference in close games with his smart decision-making, final balls, guile, and intelligence in the attacking third.
Top tip: Best defender - Reece James
Chelsea’s right-back Reece James is capable of being a massive threat to any opposition on his day. However, the Blues haven’t seen the best of him in the ongoing campaign thanks to a combination of a lack of team form as well as injuries. That said, he’s still capable of producing individual moments of brilliance when in the mood, making him a risky pick that can yield big rewards should he click against the Seagulls. A smart differentiator option, while Reece James is a gamble to go with, he could help your fantasy team score big.
Top tip: Best goalkeeper - Kepa Arrizabalaga
Kepa Arrizabalaga hasn’t had a great season and that’s not entirely his fault. The Chelsea custodian has struggled in quite a few games this season alongside his team’s porous defence. That said, he has managed to keep a few clean sheets in his last few games while making some good saves. He’s likely to have a busy afternoon against Brighton’s enterprising attack, which could lead to him making saves and in turn earning you precious fantasy points.
