It’s Brighton, winless since Potter’s departure, against Chelsea, unbeaten since Potter’s arrival, and the football gods are sharpening their narrative quills. We’re going to have to be extra careful to get all three points, especially after three straight draws against the Seagulls in league play.
It’s largely the same lineup from Potter as against Salzburg, with Loftus-Cheek coming in for Jorginho and Mount starting instead of Aubameyang. Youngster Omari Hutchinson gets a place on the bench!
Here we go!

Sánchez | Estupiñán, Dunk, Webster, Groß | Mac Allister, Caicedo | Mitoma, Lallana, March | Trossard
