Chelsea won Brighton 3-1 in the first round of the Premier League

After many days of waiting, Chelsea fans witnessed the debut of two expensive rookies Kai Havertz and Timo Werner in the Premier League. Werner kicks highest in attack, while Havertz plays the role of the right-winger in a 4-2-3-1.

Chelsea are appreciated, but play defensive counterattack. The midfield of Chelseafell under pressure from the home team. Brighton controlled the ball more (55%) and continuously made situations where the ball was deployed to two sides.

Kai Havertz takes time to adjust to Chelsea’s playstyle

Lampard’s army does not have much space to deploy the ball from home. They were forced to make long passes to the position of Timo Werner or Kai Havertz.

Chelseaplayed stalemate, but unexpectedly received a gift from the Brighton defense. The goal of the host has a big fault for midfielder Alzate. However, Timo Werner also deserves praise for his impressive speed. Goalkeeper Matthew Ryan has no choice but to foul the striker on the visitors side. On the 11-meter mark, Jorginho put Chelseaahead 1-0 in the 23rd minute.

The opener could not help Chelsea improve the game. The visitors continued to be pressed in the following minutes. Brighton dominated the ball, sometimes up to 60%.

In the 36th minute, Kepa had to show off his talent to save Chelsea after Alzate’s decisive kick.

Timo Werner played aggressively in the debut of the new team

Chelsea had a poor match against Brighton. Except for the opening of the score from the opponent’s mistake, Lampard’s team did not create a remarkable coordination situation.

Brighton increased pressure in the second half. The wing-back pair Marcos Alonso and Reece James made Chelsea fans nervous when they were constantly overtaken by their opponents. In 3 minutes, from 46 to 49, Kepa’s goal was unstable twice after the climbing situations of Solly March and Tariq Lamptey.

The lack of drastic play made the Chelsea defenders pay with a goal in the 54th minute. Alonso and Mount made a mistake with the superficial blocking situation. Kepa also disappoints with the situation of misjudging.
