Not long left for Brighton to get something from this match. The hosts haven't played bad. In fact, they have played quite well.

What a reaction that was from Chelsea.
57'
What a reaction from Chelsea. From the same distance, James has an effort that flies into the top corner. What a goal.

The cross comes in but Connolly can only hit it in the side-netting.

A few slack passes from Chelsea tonight.

Still just the only half-chance from Brighton. More of a quarter-chance.

Chelsea haven't really offered much.

No chances for Chelsea yet. Werner and Havertz are still getting used to English football.

Webster has the first shot of the match but he drills it well over the bar from outside the box.

I also wonder how Lallana will get on for Brighton.
