A slightly depleted Chelsea (injuries and suspensions) look for a few goals and three points to start the weekend right.

Here we go.

Brighton starting XI:
Ryan | Schelotto, Duffy, Goldson, Dunk (c), Suttner, Propper, Stephens, Match, Gross, Hemed

Substitutes from: Krul, Heunemeier, Rosenior, Kayal, Izquierdo, Murray, Baldock

Chelsea starting lineup (3-4-3):
Caballero | Rüdiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta (c) | Alonso, Kanté, Bakayoko, Moses | Hazard, Batshuayi, Willian

Substitutes from: Eduardo, David Luiz, Zappacosta, Ampadu, Sterling, Barkley, Musonda Jr

Date / Time: Saturday, January 20, 2018, 12:30 GMT; 7:30am EST; 6pm IST
Venue: Falmer Stadium (i.e. the Amex)
Referee: Jonathan Moss
On TV: Sky Sports Main Event (UK); NBCSN, NBC Universo (USA); Star Sports Select HD1 (India); elsewhere
Streaming online: Sky Go (UK); NBC Sports Live Extra; Telemundo Deportes En Vivo (USA); Hotstar (India)

As expected, Conte switches to the 3-4-3 in the absence of Morata and Fàbregas, with Kanté and Bakayoko holding down the middle and Batshuayi getting a rare start in the league.

Caballero gets his first league start with Courtois injured.

Young Dujon Sterling makes the bench as does new signing Ross Barkley for the first time.
