Goal Scorer:

Just 22 minutes after breaking the deadlock at St James' Park, Brighton defender Veltman had to be withdrawn due to a knock; he was able to conduct his post-match media duties, but De Zerbi has confirmed that he will not be involved on Wednesday.

Julio Enciso - who put in a lively but wasteful performance on Saturday - is in the same boat, but Joao Pedro's ankle problem has settled down, meaning that he should be available again.

Solly March (knee), Kaoru Mitoma (back), Jack Hinshelwood (foot), Pervis Estupinan (ankle), James Milner (thigh), Evan Ferguson (ankle) and Jan Paul van Hecke (thigh) will miss the last midweek game of the season, and Veltman's concern should see Lamptey start against the team he represented for 12 years, albeit while making just three senior appearances.
Brighton & Hove Albion possible starting lineup:
Verbruggen; Lamptey, Dunk, Webster, Igor; Gilmour, Gross; Adingra, Pedro, Fati; Welbeck

No longer working around their devastating 14-man injury crisis, Chelsea's bench had a much more senior feel to it against Forest, as Lesley Ugochukwu and captain Reece James - who came on for an 11-minute cameo in the second half - were both back at Pochettino's disposal.

Knee victims Ben Chilwell and Carney Chukwuemeka are also back in full training and could be involved, meaning that the Blues are only nursing Robert Sanchez (illness), Romeo Lavia (thigh), Wesley Fofana (knee) and Enzo Fernandez (hernia) back to full health.

Returning players coupled with a tight turnaround should be a recipe for rotation from Pochettino, as Sterling, Malo Gusto and Axel Disasi stick their hands up for recalls, but the Argentine will likely refrain from throwing the injury-plagued James back into the first XI.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Petrovic; Gusto, Disasi, Badiashile, Cucurella; Caicedo, Gallagher; Sterling, Palmer, Mudryk; Jackson
Prediction: Brighton & Hove Albion 0-2 Chelsea
