The game could have easily be won by Chelsea, but Brighton And Hove Albion came back once again to cause more problems by leveling things in the second half just like it happened in the first leg of the encounter which Danny Welbeck scored very late at Stamford Bridge.
BRIGHTON VS CHELSEA FULL MATCH REPORT
Good performance in the first half of the encounter from the Blues which saw just one goal being scored under 45 minutes as both teams gave a good account of themselves going forward and defending.
Brighton And Hove Albion started the game very well as they were the side who did press the Blues as Tariq Lamptey pace was too much to cope with causing so much problems, but in all nothing happened as they carried on in the encounter.
Chelsea soon got control of things as they claimed back 50 percent share of the ball possession which saw them pushing forward but still found it hard to get anything close on target as their opponent did very well in making sure nothing get past them to the goalkeeper.
The home side goalkeeper had a hand in a wonderful save which could have easily landed inside the net after a good run from Romelu Lukaku seeing Cesar Azpilicueta almost making it count, but unfortunately it didn’t go in after Robert Sanchez kept it out.
Hakim Ziyech found the back of the net in the 28th minute of the first half after a good teamwork effort saw NGolo Kante setting up the Moroccan who smashed the ball from outside the box to make the scoreline 0-1 which was outstanding.
The remainder of the first half carried on without anything else happening between both teams as it ended with Brighton And Hove Albion trailing 0-1 against Chelsea after 45 minutes of football played between the London clubs which was good.
Excellent start to the second half for the home side who came in good looking to make an early goal happen as they were the ones pressing for a goal knowing well how much an equalizer will mean if they are able to get it very quick under the first few minutes.
Chelsea were poor as the pressure was clearly showing and Thomas Tuchel running out of ideas which led to them finally conceding in the 60th minute through a bullet header from Adam Webster to level the scoreline 1-1 going forward in the game.
Brighton And Hove Albion were enjoying themselves as they continued to apply pressure searching for another goal which would kill off everything for their opponent who almost scored through Romelu Lukaku, but it was saved by the goalkeeper.
Things carried on poorly and ended with Brighton And Hove Albion holding Chelsea to a 1-1 draw which put more holes in their race to winning the English Premier League title that won’t be looking like they could not win it this season.
