Benzema's superb header in the space of 3 minutes midway through the first half left Paris St-Germain in the 16th round and punished Chelsea.

Again won the Premier League and FA Cup double with Benzema awarding his Master Class.
Real Madrid madrid took the lead before the second leg at the Bernabeu, Chelsea's header initially gave hope but the goalkeeper's lack of form meant that Chelsea had to accept reality.

At the time of the match Real Madrid had warned of the danger but heeded it. And once Benzema confirmed his aerial threat with the second goal, Chelsea were always vulnerable to the side that dominates this Champions League situation.

The defender was unable to control a Real Madrid player who ferociously directed the ball into an unguarded goal. Chelsea have gone out of their way to overcome adversity but the Rivals hold a 2-goal lead going into the second leg.

Benzema got better as he got older, scoring two top-class headers before netting the third, while Modric maintained his invaluable ability to control the tempo of the game, hold on to possession and always make the right choices from the available options.

Brighton vs Chelsea Prediction: The Away Team is Thirsty for Victory

MDP Live - Chelsea is looking for an outlet for anger after being humiliated by Manchester City last Saturday. In the Premier League match, the Blues were forced to surrender 0-1 by The Citizens. Kevin de Bruyne's single goal in the 70th minute buried Thomas Tuchel's men at the Etihad Stadium.

This defeat also widened the distance between the Blues and City. Chelsea now occupies the third position with 43 points or 13 points adrift of The Citizens who control the first position.

So that the gap is not getting wider, Chelsea must look for the missing points. And Brighton, who is in seventh place on the Premier League table, is not impossible to be the victim. The two teams are scheduled to meet at Falmer Stadium on Wednesday (19/1/2022) at 03.00.

The embarrassment of losing against City is not the only reason Chelsea need to do better at Brighton. However, it has been a long time since Thomas Tuchel's troops have not picked up the three points. Of the last six games, Chelsea have won only once and drawn four games.

This negative trend certainly needs to end if you want to stay on the track to win the Premier League title this season. Moreover, the position of the Blues is also not too safe. With the current points score, it is not impossible that Chelsea will be knocked out of the top four, considering that the teams below it, such as Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, have more games remaining.

However, Chelsea certainly needs to work hard at Brighton. Brighton is known to be on fire and is unbeaten in the last five matches in all competitions, including 4 Premier League matches. In the meeting with Chelsea in December 2021, Brighton was able to force a 1-1 draw.

It's a shame neither Brighton nor Chelsea will perform at their best. Both teams lost a number of pillars due to injury, Covid-19, and the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations.
