Timo Werner set for Premier League debut against Brighton

Frank Lampard makes his Premier League debut at summer signings Kai Havertz and Timo Werner at Chelsea Monday night football meeting with Brighton.

Havertz and Werner are the only new faces in Chelsea’s starting lineup at Amex Stadium, with Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech unavailable due to injury.

Kepa Arrizabalaga is preferred over Willy Caballero in goal despite speculation about his future, while there is also a rare Premier League start for Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

N’Golo Kante joins Loftus-Cheek and Jorginho in midfield, with Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen preferred at center-back in what looks like a full-back four. Cesar Azpilicueta is only on the bench.

For Brighton, meanwhile, there is a debut for Adam Lallana, who joined the club Liverpool on a free transfer at the end of last season.

Lallana is the only new signing in Graham Potter’s roster, but there is a start for Ben White, who returned to the club after his loan spell at Leeds last season.

Brighton’s side will face Chelsea: Ryan, Webster, Dunk, Blanc, Lamptey, Bissouma, Alzate, Mars, Lallana, Trossard, Maupay

Submarines: Steele, Stephens, Connolly, Gross, Jahanbakhsh, Burn, Veltman

Chelsea squad will face Brighton: Kepa, Alonso, Christensen, Zouma, James, Jorginho, Kante, Loftus-Cheek, Mount, Havertz, Werner

Submarines: Caballero, Rudiger, Barkley, Abraham, Giroud, Hudson-Odoi, Azpilicueta
