The Blues face Brighton knowing that anything less than a win would open the door for sides below them to tighten the gap.

Thomas Tuchel’s men have won just two of their last five Premier League matches, though Romelu Lukaku came to the rescue with the effective match-winner against Aston Villa on his return from injury.

Brighton have finally ended their 11-game winless streak and remarkably remain in the top half with renewed optimism.

The Seagulls defeated Brentford on Boxing Day evening to stomp back into the top 10 and will now be looking to rebuild some momentum.

Our prediction: Chelsea v Brighton

Chelsea have lacked the presence of Lukaku – or any focal point – up front throughout his injury. He hasn’t been in terrific goalscoring form for Chelsea since returning to the club, but his natural striker instincts have been missed.

Kai Havertz and Timo Werner have failed to convince Tuchel that they can step up and bear the goalscoring burden, though Mason Mount has continued to glisten this term.

Brighton have been desperate to shake off their habit of picking up 1-1 draws, but they’d take exactly that here.

Our prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Brighton (8/1 at bet365)
