Brighton 4-1 Chelsea: Graham Potter tastes his first defeat

While it was the first defeat for Chelsea during the reign of Graham Potter, it was a first Premier League win for his replacement, Roberto De Zerbi, as Brighton emerged with 4-1 victory over the Blues in match week 14 of the Premier League.

With loads of goals and interesting chances. Chelsea were destroyed against Brighton right from the start of the game. It never looked as if they would get back into this game.

The hosts finished the first half with three goals to nil, including two own goals by the visitors, through Ruben Loftus-Cheek (14′) and Trevoh Chalobah (42′), while the other goal was scored by Leandro Trossard (5′) who has scored the first five Brighton’s goals in the Premier League under Roberto De Zerbi, to be the first player that has netted a team’s first five goals under a new manager.

An interesting fact that Brighton have scored three goals in the first half of a Premier League game for just the third time, with neither of the previous two instances coming in their 120 games in the competition under Graham Potter.

Kai Havertz scored the visitors only goal of the game, at the beginning of the second half, but Pascal GroƟ ensured the victory for the home side in the second minute of the added time, to conclude a huge victory for the team and their manager, Roberto De Zerbi, who hasn’t won a game with Brighton before today.
