  • Lallana is replaced by Connolly with a minute of the first half to play. It may be a new club for Lallana, but it is a familiar tale as he hobbles down the tunnel.

  • GOOOOAAAALLLLL!!! BRIGHTON 1-1 CHELSEA!! The home side have an equaliser - and a deserved one at that! For all of Brighton's impressive team play, the goal is all about the individual quality of Trossard, who sends a long-range shot swerving away from Kepa.

  • GOOOOAAAAALLL!!! BRIGHTON 1-2 CHELSEA!!! WHAT A STRIKE!!! Trossard's goal was good, but this is even better from right-back James - his first goal in the Premier League. He puts his foot through the ball 25 yards from goal and picks out the top-right corner, giving Ryan no chance whatsoever.

  • GOOOOAAAALLL!!! BRIGHTON 1-3 CHELSEA!! Lampard's men have some breathing space thanks to Zouma's volley, although it may go down as a Webster own goal. James sends in a corner, Zouma makes himself free to guide the ball goalwards and it trickles past Ryan after taking a touch off Webster.
