The Blues will make a few changes in their starting eleven in the match. Gonzalo Higuain might go back to the bench of the Blues. The Blues have bought Gonzalo Higuain in their squad in the winter transfer window of 2018-19 season. However, their plan did not work out as Gonzalo Higuain had not been able to perform well in the Premier League. The playing attribute which is needed to be successful is probably missing in the gameplay of Gonzalo Higuain. Olivier Giroud is in good form and he has played really well in the International Break. So, Olivier Giroud is going to start in this match for the Blues. Callum Hudson Odoi has a huge chance to start in this match. Pedro and Willian started in the previous match against Cardiff City.

Eden Hazard did not start against Cardiff City. So, he will certainly start in this match against Brighton and Hove Albion. Eden Hazard is going to be the key player for the Blues in this match. He was rested as he was continuously playing for his club and country.

Ross Barkley might be rested in this match and Ruben Loftus Cheek might be tested in the attacking midfielder in this match. David Luiz will be surely starting in the central defense of the Blues in this match. Antonio Rudiger will partner him in the central defense.
