Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea face a tricky trip to Brighton in the Premier League tonight
Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea face a tricky trip to Brighton in the Premier League tonight

Brighton host Chelsea in Tuesday’s only remaining Premier League fixture after last night's postponement of Burnley vs Watford.

We look ahead to the clash in detail, as well as putting several potential January transfers under the microscope.

Brighton vs Chelsea

Chelsea head to the South Coast 13 points behind league leaders Manchester City following Saturday’s narrow 1-0 defeat at the Etihad.

While Thomas Tuchel is refusing to rule his side out of the title hunt, it appears the Blues’ race is ran — and things are unlikely to get much easier for them at the Amex tonight.

Graham Potter’s hosts are unbeaten in five matches across all competitions — including a late 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge last month — and will be confident of causing an upset.

One man the visitors will have to keep close tabs on is their former academy star Tariq Lamptey, who has shone for the Seagulls since arriving from the capital two years ago.

We put the flying full-back in the spotlight and ask whether 21-year-old Lamptey is destined for bigger things in the near future.

Meanwhile, it looks like Chelsea could move for a left-back with Ben Chilwell ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

Will the Blues settle for a loan move or could they be tempted into some permanent business this month? We assess the options.

Along with the above, we have all the key quotes and information on tonight’s contest covered in our match preview.

Today it is Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn in the spotlight with Manchester United reportedly plotting a £40million summer move for the 27-year-old Scot.

Burnley's clash with Watford has been postponed this evening due to the Clarets' depleted squad — and that may just prove a blessing in disguise for boss Sean Dyche.

Desperately needing to sign a forward after losing target man Chris Wood to relegation rivals Newcastle, we take a closer look at what could prove to be the most important signing in the club's history.

Could we soon see a familiar face return to the Premier League? 

Ex-Chelsea striker Diego Costa is being linked with a shock switch to Arsenal after ending his stint with Brazilian side Atletico Mineiro.

We look at whether two-time Premier League winner Costa, 33, could really be headed to the Emirates and ponder what he would bring to Mikel Arteta’s side.

Anthony Martial is another forward who could be on the move with the United outcast absent from the Red Devils' squad for the clash against Aston Villa last weekend.

What has gone so wrong for Martial and which clubs could move for the Frenchman if Old Trafford chiefs do opt to let him go?
