EPL: Chelsea seek to dim Brighton

EPL: Chelsea seek to dim Brighton

Chelsea recorded their first victory of 2018 with what was a convincing 4-0 success at Brighton on Saturday in the Premier League.

"We created other chances as well". They've not gone three away games without a win in the Premier League under Antonio Conte.

With the video assistant referee (VAR) system Chelsea felt so hard done by in midweek not in place, Jonathan Moss waved away both appeals.

Victor Moses added gloss to the scoreline in the 89th minute as the reigning champion moved to third on the table.

Fortune continued to escape the hosts in the second half as Davy Propper headed against the crossbar, before Chelsea hit the woodwork themselves as Ryan tipped Willian's curling free kick onto the post. But his low drive was no problem for Willy Caballero, in for the Thibaut Courtois, who injured his ankle in training.

The combination of Hazard, Willian, and Michy Batshuayi were deadly up front, contributing three goals and two assists in the absence of key players.

Eden Hazard was able to make it 3-0 with a classic goal before Victor Moses put the icing on the cake to make it 4-0 with Chelsea deserved winners.

They could also remain winless in their opening three Premier League matches of a calendar year for the first time in 23 years.

The Seagulls were still at sea when William doubled Chelsea's lead in the 6th minute from an excellent interchange with Hazard and Michy Batshuayi.

Willian hammered-home Chelsea's second goal.

For roughly two weeks, and nearly 400 minutes of soccer, Chelsea had forgotten how to score goals.

After previously scoring just once in four games in all competitions, Chelsea had two inside six minutes at the Amex. At the moment I have a lot of potential and a lot of world-class attributes and I want to showcase that at a massive club like Chelsea and win things and be regarded as a top-quality player.

"I give my opinion to my club, but the final decision is for the club", he said.

As Morata's goals dried up, so did Chelsea's, and it was clear a change of approach was needed.

Chelsea won the first meeting 2-0 on Boxing Day thanks to goals from Alvaro Morata and Marcos Alonso to chalk up a sixth straight triumph, though their momentum has obviously slowed considerably since then.
