Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel believes Brighton are a 'tough side to beat'.

The Blues travel to the AMEX on Tuesday as they look to bounce back from last weekend's loss to Manchester City.

Asked how his team can overcome Graham Potter's side, Tuchel said: "I agree with you that they are a tough side to beat and play against.

“It is the first time for me to play against them in their stadium and they are not shy to play one-on-one, do high pressing across the whole pitch, and maybe that already answers part of the question.

"We have to win challenges not only defensively but offensively. You have to make a point, prove yourself, and you have to step up in quality and be ready no matter what because we will face a brave and very unique, strong opponent. If we want to win, we need to be at the top level."
