At long last Chelsea have lost a match after 33 unbeaten matches

Going into this game on a 10 striaght wins in all competitions, it looked like being nothing new when Sam Kerr took her goal count in the WSL to 10 , as she effectively headed home from a corner with just five minutes on the clock.

Notwithstanding, Brighton hit back quickly with a set-piece of their own, as Aileen Whelan beat Carly Telford with a header at the back post, and it was clear the breeze and slush planned to have a section to play in the match.


The Blues were the predominant side for the remainder of the challenge, yet with just blazes of our best football in plain view, and we were urgently unfortunate not to reestablish our lead when substitute Pernille Harder's volley hit the post.

Minutes after this miss, it was clear this would not have been our day, as Megan Connolly scored direct from a corner to start upbeat scenes among the opposing group.


In spite of Emma Hayes' side laying attack to the Brighton goal for the last 10 minutes, a progression of bold squares denied us over and over, as the Seagulls hung on.


At the point when the full-time whistle blew, there were thunders of festivity from the guests, who had quite recently caused probably the greatest stun of the period up until now. Our WSL-record unbeaten run of 33 matches had at last reached a conclusion. It was likewise the first occasion when we'd neglected to dominate a match at Kingsmeadow since March 2019, a run of 14 triumphs.


There will be no an ideal opportunity to harp on this failure, as we face perhaps the greatest round of the period on Wednesday night when Arsenal are the guests to Kingsmeadow. Commencement for that one is 7pm and it could have gigantic implications for this present season's title race.
