Chelsea have never lost a league match against Brighton & Hove Albion, winning 10 and drawing two of the 12 meetings. It is the most the Blues have faced an opponent without ever losing in their league history.
Having lost eight of their first 12 Premier League trips to London (W2 D2), Brighton have lost only three of their last 13 visits to the capital in the competition (W2 D8).
Jorginho has scored 10 Premier League penalties in 2021, a record in a single calendar year in the competition. Meanwhile, of players to have netted at least 10 Premier League goals, the Italian has scored the highest share from the penalty spot, 89 per cent, with 17 out of 19.
Brighton have lost just once away from home in the Premier League this season (W2 D5) but are winless in their last six league matches on the road.
