Pascal Gross Takes a Swipe at Chelsea Ahead of Brightons Visit to Stamford Bridge

Brighton Midfielder Fires Dig at Big-Spending Rivals

Pascal Gross couldn't resist taking a cheeky dig at Chelsea as Brighton prepares to face them at Stamford Bridge today. The German midfielder and his team currently sit six points ahead of the Blues in the Premier League table.

Chelsea's Billion Pound Spending Spree

Chelsea has spent over £1 billion on new players since Todd Boehly's arrival last year. This includes approximately £200 million paid to Brighton for Moises Caicedo, Robert Sanchez, and Marc Cucurella. Additionally, they paid £21.5 million to bring manager Graham Potter and his staff from the Amex.

Brighton's Chance to Extend Their Lead

Despite Chelsea's significant spending, Brighton has the opportunity to extend their lead over their big-spending rivals. If Brighton wins today, they could be nine points ahead of Chelsea in the Premier League.

Gross Takes a Sly Jab at Chelsea

Pascal Gross couldn't help but take a sly jab at Mauricio Pochettino's side before the game. The veteran midfielder, who has been with Brighton since 2017, stated that Chelsea may have more money, but it doesn't matter on the pitch. Gross emphasized that Brighton is a happy place and that he concentrates on his club.

Brighton's Optimistic Outlook

Gross also spoke highly of Brighton, calling it a good place to be. He mentioned that they are a growing club, fighting for each other, and have a lot of good people and great times ahead.

Caicedo's Struggles at Chelsea

Moises Caicedo, who joined Chelsea for a British record £115 million, has struggled to reach the heights he achieved with Brighton. When asked about Caicedo's performance, Pochettino mentioned that it's normal for players to face challenges when adjusting to a new club, teammates, and context.
