Is Chelsea vs Brighton on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Premier League fixture

Chelsea face Brighton in the Premier League tonight as the home team seek to re-enter the top four.

Thomas Tuchel’s players were 1-0 winners on Saturday as they knocked out top-flight leaders Manchester City and secured a place in the FA Cup final.

Chelsea would go fourth on goal difference with a draw here, while a win would lift them to third.

Brighton, meanwhile, drew 0-0 with Everton last time out and sit in 16th, six points off the relegation zone, heading into this fixture. Graham Potter’s players also have a game in hand over some of their rivals – and two in hand over others – in this final stretch of the season.

For Brighton, Tariq Lamptey and Solly March remain sidelined through injury, and Florin Andone and Percy Tau are unlikely to be involved. Aaron Connolly could return, however, if only to the bench.
