Chelsea missed the chance to move up to third in the Premier League following our goalless draw against Brighton at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

Explaining why Chelsea couldn’t beat Brighton, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said: “They were very strong, they are a very underrated team if you only look at the pitch.

“They deserve a lot more points than they have. They have a unique style of playing that makes it hard to create chances.

“We couldn’t find the answers. We weren’t good enough in counter moments, not precise enough after ball losses, we didn’t create too many moments in counter pressing.

“That’s why it was a tough match, we were a bit tired mentally and physically, but credit to Brighton for having a strong defensive performance. We had two, three mistakes and could’ve lost the game.”
