Brighton 1-1 Chelsea: Webster cancels out Ziyech's opener as Blues miss chance to go above Liverpool

Chelsea missed the chance to go above Liverpool on the log as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton on Tuesday night. 

Brighton seemed fearless in the opening minutes trying to create scoring opportunities against a disciplined team at the back. 

The hosts went close to taking the lead through Danny Welbeck but he completely mistimed a through ball and Kepa had the ball. 

In response, Chelsea took the lead through Hakim Ziyech, out of nowhere but it was a brilliant strike as he caught Brighton keeper with a flying ball near the post. 

Mac Allister tested Kepa and nearly caught the Chelsea defender with a left-footed effort but Kepa cleared for a corner. 

Leveller 

From the resultant corner, Brighton had the leveller. The corner was drilled into the box and was met by a bullet header from Webster. Kepa, who did so well to keep Chelsea ahead just moments ago, could only stand and stare as the ball flew into the net.

Chelsea have now dropped more points, and that's just one win in their last seven games and they stay third.
