Chelsea vs Brighton: Confirmed starting eleven as tough Cole Palmer decision is made at the last minute

Chelsea have won only one of their past 14 Premier League home fixtures, beating Luton Town 3-0 in August.

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino will be looking for an instant reaction to their 4-1 defeat at Newcastle last weekend with the manager making it clear that the performance was below the standard expected.

On Friday during his press conference, he admitted it was even more disappointing after watching the game back and that he's spoken to the players and they will look to improve against the Seagulls straight away.

Pochettino told reporters: "To clarify the things and realise what happened. It was a tough week for everyone. I am very happy because they reacted very well. I was tough with them inside and outside but it's to blame ourselves also because our approach was maybe wrong. It was a good week to realise things that we need to improve and even watching the game back makes us want to improve."

Chelsea beat Brighton in the League Cup earlier in the campaign and will hope that the fact that the Seagulls had to play in Europe on Thursday will hand them an advantage.

Chelsea have lost five of their opening 13 Premier League games for only the second time in 28 seasons. They had lost seven at this stage in 2015-16.

The Blues have also won only one of their past 14 Premier League home fixtures, beating Luton Town 3-0 in August. So with that in mind, here is the team manager Mauricio Pochettino has named for the game this afternoon.
