Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic has confirmed that he will be fit to face Brighton tomorrow afternoon. The American international missed the 2-1 win over Arsenal at the weekend due to a groin problem but he has fully recovered from the injury.
Marcos Alonso could also be back in contention after missing the London derby with a muscular problem. However, Reece James (ankle), Marco van Ginkel (knee), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Achilles) and Olivier Giroud (ankle) all remain sidelined.
Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Face Brighton:
Kepa, Azpilcueta, Rudiger, Tomori, Emerson, Kante, Jorginho, Mount, Willian, Abraham, Pulisic
Brighton manager Graham Potter has just two injuries heading into tomorrow’s game at the Amex. Solly March is still out following groin surgery, while Jose Izquierdo is not expected to return from a knee injury until February.

Ryan, Montoya, Webster, Dunk, Burn, Propper, Stephens, Gross, Mooy, Trossard, Maupay
