Chelsea beats Brighton 4-1, Moses scores

Chelsea beats Brighton 4-1, Moses scores

"We started very well and scored quickly, with good combinations", said Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

Chelsea flew into a two-goal lead before Brighton barely had time to catch their breath.

Brighton felt hard done by referee Moss for a second time as Schelotto looked to have been pushed in the box on 35 minutes.

Eden Hazard inspired Chelsea to a 4-0 victory at Brighton to give the champions their first Premier League win of 2018. Willy Caballero played admirably in Thibaut Courtois' absence.

Antonio Conte was proud of how his players responded to recent criticism and returned to goalscoring form during today's big win at Brighton.

After a decent start to the season, Brighton are in bother right now.

It was Chelsea's first win this year, having drawn their four previous matches in all competitions.

But with Michy Batshuayi deputising up front for the former Real Madrid man on Saturday, Chelsea were instantly back among the goals.

And just like that, it was 2-0. So to recap, Chelsea scored more goals in six minutes than it had in 390 minutes previously.

How to turn OFF Instagram's controversial 'Last Active' feature
However, if you were planning on turning off your status but looking at other people's, Instagram isn't going to let that happen. Facebook , WhatsApp , and a number of other services show when users are active or when they have been last seen.

But things could have been different as Brighton had two decent penalty shouts turned down with the score at 2-0. They had even conceded less than Arsenal in 23 games.

This moment showcased that Caballero was clearly a little nervous. Shane Duffy got his head on Suttner's following set piece, but couldn't direct the ball on target. Cesc Fabregas, Gary Cahill are also injury doubts for Conte's men both are struggling with injury. However, he displayed just why he is still a top quality goalkeeper as he denied Tomer Hemed. Davy Propper struck the post with a header as well. The stopper had made a number of saves in the first-half and he was at it again in the second-half as he kept his side in the game.

Three-at-the-back is in vogue presently, but teams need to be prepared for growing pains as they try it out in Premier League action.

It was majestic stuff play from the visitors, and to which the Brighton defence simply had no answer.

The goal was one that sums up the talent of the player as his opponents seemed too scared to close him down.

It was a lovely gesture from Hazard after a match-winning performance against the Seagulls. Victor Moses added the gloss to the scoreline with a minute left.

It was the first time that Chelsea have travelled to the Amex Stadium since Brighton moved to their current home in 2011.

He drafted the inconsistent Willian into his team, retained Hazard, and finally realized Michy Batshuayi was in fact both alive and still on his roster.
