Chelsea vs Brighton

Eduoard Mendy (7/10)- The Senegalese shot-stopper had to make some saves in the first half after some poor defending. He pulled off a fine save off Adam Lallana which was hit ferociously.

Cesar Azpilicueta (6.5/10)- A much more improved performance from the experienced Spaniard. He was able to attack more from the right-hand flank and Combined well with Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic. He even hit the post in the first half from the corner kick.

Andreas Christensen (6.5/10)- Christensen had a bit off a worry after he sat down holding his right hip but managed to continue. He was aggressive in his defending and got in some solid interceptions.

Antonio Rudiger (7/10)- The German international led from the front at the back for Chelsea and was called into action multiple times. He got the first booking in the game after the tackle on Tariq Lamptey in the first half. He put in an important block after the shot from McCallister.

Reece James (4/10) – A disappointing evening for Reece James as he had to substitute off and suffering from an injury.

Callum Hudson-Odoi (6/10)- Not the best of games from Callum Hudson-Odoi as he was sloppy in possession at times. He got into some good positions with his runs but the final product was missing from his game. He failed to pass to Mount who was in a prime position to score.

Jorginho(6/10)- A surprisingly poor performance from the Italian international tonight. He was unable to control the game from the middle of the park. He lost the ball far too many times under pressure.

Matteo Kovacic (6.5/10)-  Matteo Kovacic set up a great opportunity for Romelu Lukaku in the second half who was just off target. He even took a shot at goal in the second half after the corner kick from Mason Mount.

Mason Mount (7.5/10)- Another game and yet another goal contribution from Mason Mount who is flourishing at the moment. A lovely curled-in delivery was met by Romelu Lukaku and led to the goal.

Christian Pulisic (7/10)- The American international was bright and bubbly in the first half and attracted the fouls from the Brighton and Hove Albion defence. He set up a really good opportunity for Callum Hudson-Odoi whose shot was blocked.

Romelu Lukaku (7.5/10) – Chelsea fans will be delighted with Romelu Lukaku getting yet another goal in consecutive matches. Romelu Lukaku hardly had any touches but made a fantastic near-post run to meet Mason Mount’s cross and scored a brilliant goal.

Substitute-

Marcos Alonso (5.5/10)- Marcos Alonso was called into action early tonight as Reece James was down injured. He was poor on the ball and lost possession far too many times.

Trevoh Chalobah (6.5/10)- The youngster came on to replace the injured Andreas Christensen at the halftime mark. He put in some good interventions but failed to mark his man as Danny Welbeck scored.

N’golo Kante (7/10)- N’golo Kante was by far one of the best players in the match after coming on. He was full of energy and made some precise passes.

Brighton Hove & Albion:

Chelsea vs Brighton
Chelsea ve Brighton

Robert Sánchez (6/10): The Spanish goalkeeper had a great game at the back as he made some vital saves and clearances in the match even though he was not able to keep a clean sheet in the match.

Dan Burn (6.5/10): The English defender was strong as a wall in the middle and was the only man who was able to stop Romelu Lukaku physically in the box. Burn made some strong blocks and interceptions to play in the front for some quick counterattack.

Marc Cucurella (7.5/10): The Spanish footballer was playing as a center-back for Brighton in the match and was absolutely sensational in the game as he made his presence in the match felt with strong defensive play to intercept, clear, and block some vital chances taken on by Chelsea. Cucurella was strong not only defensively but offensively also and that was shown when he provided the assist to Danny Welbeck for the equalizer in the match.

 Joël Veltman (6/10): The Dutch defender was absolutely sensational throughout the game as he was strong to stop Chelsea forwards on the right side of the pitch making some strong interceptions and strong tackles to win the ball back.

Yves Bissouma (5/10): The Malian midfielder was not at all up to the mark in the match as he lost possession several times and had also very little accuracy on his passes. Bissouma could have been much better in the game which might have caused much more trouble to Chelsea.

Adam Lallana (7/10): The English attacking half was very strong in the game as he kept on drifting forward with the ball providing some good passes upfront and also took some strong shots to trouble the Chelsea goalkeeper at the back.

Solly March (6.5/10): The English wingback was strong not only defensively but also offensively throughout the game although March could have been a little calmer and composed with the ball on his feet as he fumbled a few times moving with the ball forward for the attack.

Tariq Lamptey (7/10): The young English wingback was absolutely sensational for the time he was on the pitch and created a lot of trouble for the Chelsea defenders on the right side of the pitch with his incredible pace and dribbling skills.

Neal Maupay (4/10): The French forward was not at par with his performance tonight as he kept on losing possession in the final third of the pitch and was also directly responsible for Chelsea’s only goal of the match as he failed to mark and stop Romelu Lukaku in the box.

Alexis Mac Allister (6.5/10): The Argentine midfielder had a very average performance in the game as he was not able to deliver the final impact in the game. Allister was strong to intercept and regain possession but on the negative side, he also kept giving away balls which could have been avoided and improved. 

Jakub Moder (7/10): The Polish midfielder was everywhere on the pitch as he not only helped Brighton to move the ball in the front but also fell back to help his team defensively several times to win the ball and regain possession of the ball in the match.

Substitute

Enock Mwepu (5.5/10): The Zambian midfielder took the place of Lamptey at the 66th minute and was brilliant with the ball up front in the pitch as he made some key interceptions and passes for the time he was on the pitch.

Danny Welbeck (7.5/10): The English forward came in as a sub at the 80th minute and within 10 minutes he was there to make an impact in the game as he provided the equalizer to Brighton at the 91st minute heading the ball at the back of the net from a beautiful cross laid down by Cucurella.
