Chelsea earned a deserved 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday through a Jorginho penalty and a deflected strike from Willian.

Match Report

Chelsea bounce back from their defeat to Liverpool last time out in the Premier League with a 2-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion.

A Jorginho penalty and a deflected strike from Willian earned Chelsea their first home Premier League win under Frank Lampard as they beat Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 on Saturday.

Lampard's men had drawn two and lost one of their opening three matches at Stamford Bridge this term, but they deservedly got off the mark on this occasion.

Brighton, now beaten in all nine of their league meetings with Chelsea, survived an onslaught on their goal in the first half but Adam Webster gifted the Blues a spot-kick early in the second half.

Match Events

15' OFF THE POST! Abraham nearly scores

The Blues are denied by the woodwork as Abraham glances his header at goal. The forward rises highest from Mount's free-kick into the box, getting a run on his marker in the middle. However, his header comes back off the post before the visitors hack away the loose ball in the box.

50' Penalty Goal! Chelsea 1-0 Brighton (Jorginho)

Mount puts the pressure on Webster and forces the mistake from the defender with a short backpass. He sticks out a leg to bring down the midfielder, leaving the referee to point to the penalty spot.

Chelsea take the lead as Jorginho holds his nerve from 12 yards. He goes for the staggered run-up and then places his effort into the left bottom corner. Ryan is fooled and is rooted to the spot.

61' CLOSE! Abraham's shot saved

Brighton play themselves into trouble at the back once more. A backpass from Stephens is cut out by Abraham on the stretch and he pokes an effort towards goal, but Ryan remains big and makes the block with his body to deny the forward.

63' Sub! Hudson-Odoi replaces Pedro

Hudson-Odoi makes his first Premier League appearance of the season as he replaces Pedro.

76' GOAL! Chelsea 2-0 Brighton (Willian)

Chelsea have their second goal to take the contest away from Brighton. Willian runs at Burn in the right inside channel and finds enough space to fire at goal. His effort takes a deflection off the leg of the defender to wrong foot Ryan and find the net.
