There are more and more reasons to believe that next season Maurizio Sarri’s men will have a new manager, especially after such major defeats as in games against Arsenal (2-0), Bournemouth (4-0), Manchester City (6-0) and Everton (2-0).
For example, last weekend the Chelsea coach was booed by the Blues fans in the game against Cardiff City, but despite everything, Sarri still managed to snatch this controversial 2-1 victory in the second half, despite the team play leave much to be desired.
The position of the “aristocrats” improved on Tuesday evening, when Wolverhampton defeated Manchester United and now, if they win tonight, the team will be able to jump to the 3rd place instead of Arsenal.
Sarri planned to give a break to N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard after defeating Cardiff, but apparently both players will be called to the match with the Gulls, because better be safe than sorry.
As for Brighton, the team significantly improved their position in March as part of the English Championship, in parallel with its passage to the English Cup semi-finals. The Albion are still without midfielder Pascal Gross, who was injured during the 28th round of the English Championship, but Romanian forward Florin Andone will probably play.
