This Saturday, Chelsea chained a third consecutive defeat at home against Brighton.
After two defeats against Wolverhampton and Real Madrid for his first two matches since returning to the bench chelseaFrank Lampard hoped to finally put an end to the negative spiral of the Blues this Saturday against Brighton. But once again, Londoners showed a dull face.
Dominated at the start of the game with a crossbar of Ferguson, yet they are the ones who end up opening the scoring, ending a series of four matches without scoring a single goal. On a shot blocked at the entrance to the surface, Conor Gallagher allows Chelsea to open the scoring. Despite this, the locals are fragile defensively, in panic in the face of the flashes of mitoma and even on their own raises, leaving the Seagulls to create several chances.
Until the inevitable equalizer. Came on in place of Ferguson three minutes earlier through injury, Danny Welbeck takes a cross from Pascal Gross to equalize just before the break. Returning from the locker room, Roberto De Zerbi’s men still dominate the game but are very close to being surprised by a header from Pulisic on the post. Adam Lallana will also find the amount after a new misunderstanding of the Chelsea defense.

It was finally 20 minutes from the end that Julio Enciso, who also came into play following an injury, gave his team the advantage with a missile from 25 meters which ended up in the skylight of Kepa. Brighton won 2-1 at Stamford Bridge and relaunched themselves in the race for Europe by taking advantage of Tottenham’s defeat against Bournemouth. For its part, Chelsea chained a third defeat in a row and a sixth game without a win. 11th in the Premier League, Lampard’s men no doubt said goodbye to Europe this Saturday with this 12th defeat in the league.
