Big match preview: Chelsea vs Brighton

Chelsea have everyone else available apart from Charly Musonda and David Luiz, who is out with a long-term knee injury. If they're too cautious, Chelsea will pick them off as Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham have done. N'golo Kante and Tiemoue Bakayoko are expected to be joined by Cesc Fabregas in midfield as well.

Attack: Alvaro Morata is back in contention after serving a one-game suspension against Everton so the Spanish global should come straight back in to the starting eleven against Brighton.

Three of those five victories have come by a 1-0 scoreline. With this in mind, Chelsea host Brighton on Tuesday.

That means Eden Hazard should move back out to the wing after the Belgian superstar played in a more central role at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.

Chelsea have won all four of their previous league matches against Brighton, though this will be the first such meeting since March 1989 in the second tier.

Brighton have failed to win a match on Boxing day in their last 8 attempts.

Antoinio Rudiger is the man most likely to make way if Conte recalls Cahill as Andreas Christensen has done exceptionally well since coming in to the side while Cesar Azpilicueta is one of Chelsea's most consistent players. A Chelsea win looks a very safe bet but it is worth looking elsewhere to secure a bigger price. Chelsea dominated the match but were wasteful with their numerous chances. Needless to say, the reigning champions clearly missed their top scorer last week.

'We tried to win, I think we were a bit unlucky with a few balls that were saved on the line. Huddersfield are the only other newly promoted side that are above Brighton, with last season's play-off winners a point above, while Newcastle have been struggling and it took a huge win in their last game to get them out of the relegation zone. Maybe against Everton if you were losing 1-0 early, maybe you could have the same hard game so we were very concentrated in the beginning, trying all the game to keep the clean sheet which was a good thing about today, and we tried to score but we couldn't.

Brighton are 14/1 to pull off a shock victory at Stamford Bridge.
