The Blues travel to face Brighton with a host of new signings and high-profile names desperate to make an immediate impact.

Timo Werner is the most likely to start, though it remains to be seen whether Frank Lampard will throw Kai Havertz straight in at the deep end.

The Chelsea boss will be determined for his side to tighten up at the back, but in terms of goals scored, this season shouldn’t bear any issues.

Brighton have added little to their squad so far in 2020/21 but will trust coach Graham Potter to extract a tune from his crop of existing players.

Brighton v Chelsea team news

Brighton: There are no injury concerns whatsoever for Potter and his team.

Adam Lallana is poised to make his debut after joining from Liverpool while Ben White will return to the XI after impressing on loan at newly-promoted Leeds last year.

Chelsea: Injury concerns galore! New signings Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech are out, while Thiago Silva has only just arrived at the club following his move and Monday will be too soon for him to start.

Christian Pulisic and Cesar Azpilicueta are fit again, but won’t be rushed back from hamstring injuries.

Mateo Kovacic will serve a suspension, while youngster Billy Gilmour is also ruled out through injury.

Our prediction: Brighton v Chelsea

Chelsea have the makings of a truly terrific team, but they’re coming into this season in disjointed fashion.

It may be some weeks before we see the best of the Blues as their new boys get up to speed and shake off their various injury problems.

However, Werner will be hoping to get off to a bright start, so too will Havertz. Chelsea tend not to keep clean sheets, but should find the net with the attacking resources at their disposal.

Our prediction: Brighton 1-2 Chelsea
