Brighton & Hove Albion will hope to end a six-match losing streak in all competitions when Chelsea are the visitors to The People’s Pension Stadium on Sunday.

The Seagulls have endured a torrid run of results while their goal drought is equally as disappointing with Maisie Symonds’ late goal against Leicester City in November being the last that Hope Powell’s side have scored.

Brighton & Hove Albion go into the match with doubts over whether manager Powell will be in the dugout. The 55-year-old has tested positive for COVID-19 and is awaiting PCR test results. On the pitch, The Seagulls will be without forward Lee Guem-min who is away with South Korea at the AFC Women’s Asian Cup India 2022 while it has not been confirmed whether Fliss Gibbons will return to the squad this weekend.

Chelsea travel to Crawley fresh from a 4-2 victory over West Ham United in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup quarter-finals in midweek. The Blues continue to be without Ji So-yun and Sam Kerr who are away on international duty while Magda Eriksson, Melanie Leupolz, Lauren James and Maren Mjelde are all again expected to be unavailable.

The Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture between Brighton & Hove Albion and Chelsea is scheduled to kick-off at 12.30pm on Sunday afternoon. Tickets can be purchased by clicking here.
