  • GOAL!! It’s 1-0 to Chelsea! Knockaert is again beaten too easily by Hudson-Odoi and the teenager fizzes in a low cross to the near post, where Giroud arrives to squeeze the ball in from very close range! Chelsea lead!

  • GOAL!! Chelsea go 2-0 up! Hazard produces a moment of magic and Brighton are undone! He drifts in from the left and picks up the ball in a central area just outside the box. He feints to shoot, sending Dunk sliding away, before curling a lovely strike into the far corner! Chelsea really need to keep him this summer.

  • GOAL! Brighton's resistance is broken and now the floodgates have opened! Hazard turns provider for Loftus-Cheek as the pair swap roles in an almost identical move, with the Englishman firing into the top-right corner from the edge of the box to make it 3-0 to the Blues! Lovely strike!

  • Full-back Bernardo replaces winger Jahanbakhsh in Hughton’s final change. Perhaps he is accepting that the game is lost and simply wants to stem the tide now.
