Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is yet to taste a home victory as Chelsea manager in the Premier League. The new Blues boss won at Stamford Bridge for the first time in the League Cup clash against Grimsby Town on Wednesday night.

However, home league games against Leicester City, Sheffield United and Liverpool ended in draws and a defeat. Chelsea also lost a home Champions League game to Valencia, bringing question marks as to why Chelsea are yet to win at home.

Frank Lampard will be hoping to maintain Chelsea’s unbeaten league record against Brighton when both teams meet at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Lampard will be buoyed by Chelsea’s record against the Seasiders, having won every league encounter, dating back to the 1980s, and conceding just twice along the way.

Speaking ahead of the game, Lampard said: “The fact we haven’t won at home in the league is something we obviously want to correct. We need home wins. We were very unlucky last week against Liverpool, but that doesn’t help the points situation. We need a similar performance to Liverpool. If we get that level of performance, then I expect a home win to come very soon.

“We must respect Brighton hugely. They are playing some very good football, a new manager, change of style, maybe not the points on the board they deserve.

“Each game has to be prepared for on its own merits, and having watched a lot of Brighton, and knowing a little bit about Graham Potter from last year, we have to be ready for anything.”
