REPORT: Brighton 0 Chelsea 4

Tweet A marvellous brace from Eden Hazard spearheaded Chelsea to a rampant win over Brighton, as the home side’s fight for survival intensifies. Chris Hughton set up with three centre-backs for the first time this season, giving Conor Goldson only his second start, while there was no sign of Anthony Knockaert on the bench. Chelsea had only scored once in four games prior to this meet, but they didn’t wait to rectify that. Moses found space on the right and his drill was diverted by the awkwardly-balanced Dale Stephens.

REPORT: Brighton 2 Bournemouth 2

Tweet Callum Wilson’s scrappy equaliser squandered Brighton & Hove Albion’s chance to start 2018 with a home victory over Bournemouth, in what was an end-to-end game at the Amex. Both sides headed into the game knowing a victory would give a two-game buffer from the relegation zone. If scoring more goals at home was Albion’s New Year resolution, they began 2018 with intent. Jose Izquierdo manufactured space on the left and his misplaced shot fell to an unmarked Anthony Knockaert on the backpost, who finished tidily on the half volley…

REPORT: Brighton 1 Watford 0

Tweet Brighton & Hove Albion ended a seven-match winless run with a much-needed victory over an out-of-sorts Watford side. It seemed a familiar tale with the scores level at half time, but Pascal Gross’ second-half strike was enough to relieve the mounting pressure which had been festering for Vhris Hughton’s side. Both managers gesticulated at the perimeter of their technical areas in the early stages, but Watford’s shoddy defending five minutes in made Marco Silva take another two steps in outrage. A searching pass from Propper cut open The Hornets’…
