Chelsea 2-0 Brighton: Finally Chelsea seal Lampard’s first home win

Chelsea 2-0 Brighton

Jorginho and WIllian took advantage of two errors as Chelsea beat Brighton 2-0 to give Frank Lampard his first home league win as manager.

The hosts had the better of the first half and missed three glorious chances to take the lead, and in the end needed a helping hand from Brighton to open the scoring, with Adam Webster fouling Mason Mount after taking a heavy touch, and setting up Jorginho to put the hosts ahead from 12 yards.

Brighton came close when Dan Burn headed against the bar and Steven Alzate’s deflected effort flew just wide, but the points were wrapped up when Willian’s near-post effort deflected off Burn and wrong-footed Mat Ryan.

Chelsea were far from their free-flowing best but moved up to sixth in the Premier League table courtesy of a third win in five games.
