Brighton Put Chelsea To The Sword On Potter’s Return To Amex. Brighton startled Graham Potter with a 4-1 thrashing of his previous club Chelsea on his return. With the goal after five minutes, Leandro Trossard continued his streak of scoring in every game under Roberto De Zerbi, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek deflected a corner into his own net nine minutes later to put the visitors in a large hole.

De Zerbi was looking for his first win as Brighton’s manager, and he appeared to have nailed his tactics with an unexpected switch to a back four.

Brighton threatened at every opportunity, and only two spectacular clearances from Thiago Silva kept the score down.

However, just before halftime, Brighton scored their third goal after Pervis Estupinan sprinted down the left and fired a ball just inside the near post. Trevoh Chalobah made the decisive touch, but Japan’s Kaoru Mitoma would have scored if the Chelsea defender hadn’t.

Edouard Mendy took Kepa’s place at halftime after the Spanish goalkeeper reportedly hurt himself. Kai Havertz dribbled past his defender to head in Connor Gallagher’s superb cross as Chelsea wanted to get going quickly in the second half. Although the game was close, Brighton held on and kept threatening on the break.

Teenage Brighton player Julio Enciso, who is from Paraguay, entered the fray and instantly troubled Chelsea with his pace and vigour.

The home team held on and added a fourth goal late on through Pascal Gross for their first-ever league victory over Chelsea and their first in all competitions since 1933 despite the Blues’ continued pressure.
