Chelsea no longer appear title contenders as they travel to face Brighton in a rearranged Premier League game tonight.
Thomas Tuchel’s side simply had to beat Manchester City at the Etihad on Saturday to have any chance of reeling in Pep Guardiola’s runaway leaders, but came away empty-handed thanks to Kevin De Bruyne’s wonderful second-half strike.
That result left Chelsea 13 points adrift of City with 16 matches left to play this term, while they’ve since dropped down to third after Liverpool brushed aside Brentford at Anfield on Sunday.
Brighton, meanwhile, are in the midst of a strong season and pulled off a late draw at home to fierce rivals Crystal Palace on Friday night courtesy of Joachim Andersen’s own goal.
The Seagulls are on a five-match unbeaten run across all competitions and nestled in the top half of the table as they continue to take impressive strides under highly-rated coach Graham Potter, who has been mentioned as a potential candidate for the vacant Everton job.
