Chelsea Beat Brighton as Race for Top 4 Heats Up

Chelsea 3⃣ – 0⃣ Brighton

⚽O. Giroud (38) E. Hazard (60) R. Loftus-Cheek (63)

Chelsea’s fringe players justified their selection as Callum Hudson-Odoi, Olivier Giroud and Ruben Loftus-Cheek played crucial roles in Wednesday’s 3-0 win over Brighton.

Maurizio Sarri shuffled his pack from Sunday’s contentious 2-1 win at Cardiff City, handing Hudson-Odoi his first league start in the process, and Chelsea rarely looked like dropping points as they produced an excellent display at Stamford Bridge.

Hudson-Odoi certainly made an impact out wide, setting up Giroud with a pinpoint cross to give the dominant Blues the lead just before half-time.

Eden Hazard doubled their advantage with an hour played and Loftus-Cheek – who set up the Belgian – wrapped things up three minutes later with a gorgeous 25-yard strike, sending Chelsea above Manchester United and into fifth.
