Half Time at the Amex Stadium
Brighton 0 vs 1
Honestly, Brighton’s performance does not represent the scoreline, perhaps a draw would have been fair. They were really great this first 45 mins and are unlucky not to have gotten a goal.
Chelsea need to reshuffle on the restart and try to get their passes an link up right else they risk loosing these points. Perhaps the introduction of a main winger like Hudson Odoi will smooth things up for us.
46′ The Second Half is underway
47′ Brighton 0 vs 1 Chelsea
Brighton have started quite great again with Lamptey bursting through from the RW to get a shot away but it is blocked by Zouma who has been really impressive for Chelsea tonight
Chelsea are really struggling to hold possession and their counter attacking treath is really not impressive. Lampard needs to sort this out bad.
54′ Goall Brighton ! Trossard
Brighton gets a deserved goal and it is yet another downside from Kepa as he could have done better to keep chelsea into the game
56′ Goalll Chelsea! Reece James
We take back the lead in a thrilling fashion and it’s yet another lifeline for us to get it right.
Reece James powerful shot smashed the back of the net and Brighton’s Keeper had no chance
60′ Loftus Cheek Out Barkley In
The introduction of Barkley has really turned the game around for Chelsea. We are no longer playing like the underdogs.
Goall Chelsea! ZOUMA
With the little time Chelsea have controlled the game since the introduction of Barkley, they got a goal.
Zouma stuck a leg in Reece James corner and it’s deflected to goal.
