Chelsea played out a 1-1 draw with Brighton, and it was a disappointing result for the Blues despite scoring the first goal.

Hakim Ziyech had scored the opener with a shot from outside the box in the first half, but a header from Adam Webster following a fine corner kick ensured the points were shared by both sides.

Speaking after the game, Webster claimed that the Seagulls were the better team in both halves.

He told BBC: “In the first half we were the better team and they scored out of nowhere. We stuck with it and in the second half we were the better team.

“When you come up against Chelsea you have got to be on top of your game. The gaffer sets us up with such clarity on how we are going to attack the game and it makes a big difference for us.

“Chelsea are struggling a bit, we sensed that. We felt we could have got all three points but in the end are happy with the draw.”
