Chelsea entertained Brighton and Hove Albion at Stamford Bridge earlier today as they focused on collecting maximum points at home in the Premier League. The Blues made a decent start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 13th minute when Conor Gallagher scored with a deflected attempt. Danny Welbeck equalised for Brighton in the 42nd minute as both teams went into the half-time interval with a 1-1 scoreline.

Julio Enciso ended up netting the winning goal for Brighton in the 69th minute as Frank Lampard’s men suffered a 2-1 loss in front of their home fans.

Let’s take a look at how each Chelsea player performed during the match against the Seagulls.

GK: Kepa Arrizabalaga – 8/10

The Spanish keeper made a string of impressive saves at the back but still ended up conceding two goals today.

RB: Trevoh Chalobah – 6.5/10

He did his fair share of defending inside his half but offered very little going forward.

CB: Wesley Fofana – 6.5/10

Fofana tried to keep things solid at the back and was replaced in the 56th minute.

CB: Benoit Badiashile –  6.5/10

He cleared his lines when needed and was tidy with his passing.

LB: Ben Chilwell – 6.5/10

Chilwell had a few bright moments at both ends of the field but has got nothing to show for his efforts.

CM: Denis Zakaria – 6/10

He struggled to get a foothold in the game and was substituted in the 73rd minute.

CM: Enzo Fernandez – 6/10

The Argentine sensation had a couple of bright moments in the game but could last only 56 minutes.

RW: Christian Pulisic – 6.5/10

He made two encouraging runs with the ball and was unfortunate to hit the post.

CAM: Conor Gallagher – 7.5/10

Gallagher got lucky as his deflected effort was enough to give Chelsea the lead. However, he has a quiet game otherwise.

LW: Mykhailo Mudryk – 7/10

His pace caused a few headaches for the opposition defenders. Mudryk has got an assist to show for his efforts.

ST: Raheem Sterling – 6/10

He struggled to threaten the opposition goal and was substituted in the 56th minute.


RW: Hakim Ziyech – 6/10

He made one key chance in the final third.

CM: Mateo Kovacic – 6.5/10

Kovacic added some energy to Chelsea’s midfield.

LW: Joao Felix – 6/10

He didn’t get a sniff at goal.

RB: Reece James – 6/10

James failed to influence the game.

CAM: Mason Mount – 6/10

He had one strike at goal.
