Three things we gained from Chelsea – Brighton
1. Tired Chelsea can't summon objective: Perhaps tired from a debilitating exertion to dispose of Man City from the FA Cup, Chelsea was without force and sharpness. Kai Havertz got an opportunity and Christian Pulisic was exuberant when the ball discovered him, however Chelsea didn't supply great support of its front three notwithstanding
2. Brighton's late splendid play misses the mark: Chelsea got some assistance from Brighton in starting to discover danger over the last 15 minutes of the match. A horrendous giveaway from Chelsea centerback Kurt Zouma furnished Adam Lallana with an opportunity to take three gigantic focuses at Stamford Bridge, a ground at which the club has never scored. Danny Welbeck at that point crushed a ball off the bar and saw his left-footed bid hindered before Kepa Arrizabalaga halted Lallana.

Brighton gets an uncommon possibility as halftime draws near, Jorginho simply getting a piece of a Yves Bissouma shot to yield a corner
And keeping in mind that Chelsea was strongly better and had hold of the ball, Brighton didn't withdraw. Indeed, the Seagulls discovered their balance in the game with around 20 minutes to go in London. Adam Lallana had a major miss and one more shot saved, while Danny Welbeck crushed the crossbar and saw his bid at the bounce back impeded by a Brighton back.
