The blues were denied by the wood as Abraham glanced the header at the goal. The forward raised high from Mount’s free-kick into the box getting a run on his marker in the middle. However, his header came back off the post before the visitors hacked away the loose ball in the box.

Mount Put the pressure on Webster and forced the mistake from the defender with a short back pass. He staked out a leg to bring down the midfielder, leaving the referee to point to the spot. Jorginho stepped up and put the ball at the back of the net putting the blues in the lead.
Chelsea had their second goal to take the contest away from Brighton. Willian ran at Burn in the right inside channel and found space to fire at goal. His effort took a deflection off the leg of a defender to wrong-foot Ryan and found the net.
