The Seagulls were the better team in the first half between Brighton and Hove Albion and Chelsea.
Leandro Trossard scored the first goal quickly, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Trevoh Chalobah scored own goals to put Graham Potter’s old team up 3-0.
Kai Havertz’s goal a few minutes into the second half gave Potter and Chelsea a glimmer of hope. At halftime, Potter was probably very harsh with his team, Chelsea.
The Germany international gladly scored after Conor Gallagher, a midfielder, sent in a great ball.
