Chelsea and Brighton will be looking to build Boxing Day wins as they face off in the capital tomorrow night.

Brighton ended a two-month winless streak against Brentford as the Romelu Lukaku powered the Blues home against Aston Villa.

And Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is again raging against the fixture calendar over Christmas with up key pair N’Golo Kante and Thiago Silva both set to miss out.

However, despite the news of Ben Chilwell’s season ending injury, German duo Timo Werner and Kai Havertz are both back fit.

As for Brighton, that Brentford win offered a crucial boost and Graham Potter is unlikely to make too many changes.

Yves Bissouma is back from a ban, with Leandro Trossard passed fit, however defensive stalwarts Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy are both still out.

This one kicks off with a 7.30pm start tomorrow night at Stamford Bridge.
