Graham Potter led Chelsea team were in action yesterday in their 12th league game of the new English Premier League campaign away from home against Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium.

The Blues in the game were not at their very best as they delivered far below average compared to the standard they have set for themselves in their previous games.

Chelsea with the shambolic performance suffered their first ever defeat under new manager Graham Potter who has maintained a 9-game unbeaten streaks across all competitions before yesterday.

Things were not however the same for the West London club who gave the host their first ever win under their new manager who took over the helm of affairs from Graham Potter after his departure to join the Blues.

The host took a three nil lead going into the half time break courtesy of a goal from Leandro Trossard and two own-goals from Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Trevoh Chalobah.

One side attraction in the game was a tactical change made by Graham Potter at the start of the second half when Spaniard shot stopper, Kepa Arrizabalaga was substituted for Senegalese international Edouard Mendy who has not featured for the Blues since his return from injury.

However, his introduction did not make a whole lot of difference despite his team looking more serious to overturn the deficit by putting one back with a goal from Kai Havertz to make it three goals to one after which the host sealed and wrapped up the win, with a late minute goal from Pascal Gross which ended the game four goals to one at full time.

As such, it means none of Chelsea’s goalkeepers could keep a clean sheet in the five-goal thriller as Kepa Arrizabalaga conceded three and Edouard Mendy conceded just one in that regard.

 

They will all be hoping to be back to their top form in their next game with an optimism to help the team return to winning ways as they continue their pursuit in the competition
