Brighton defender reveals why he’s happy to face Chelsea

Brighton defender Adam Webster has said his side is delighted to face Chelsea in the upcoming clash in midweek.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are set to take on in-form Brighton in a Carabao Cup clash at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

The Blues are sitting on the 14th position in the Premier League table following 1-0 defeat to Aston villa during the weekend.

Asked about their Carabao Cup clash in midweek, Webster said: “Maybe it adds a little bit more spice to it [Brighton players going to Chelsea in recent months]!

“We are going to try to play our stuff and get through.

“We want to go as far as we can in every competition and we have got a strong squad.

“It’s another chance to show the manager what we’re about. Everyone is fighting for their place.”
