The Chelsea bench included youngsters Ethan Ampadu, Dujon Sterling and Musonda, as well as new signing Ross Barkley.
Brighton boss Chris Hughton also shuffled his pack, bringing in five fresh faces from their defeat at West Brom last weekend, and shifting to a more attacking 3-5-2 formation.
Before kick-off there was a minute’s applause for the late, great Cyrille Regis who sadly passed away this week. The former striker would have been impressed by the sharp shooting on display in the opening six minutes at a drizzly Amex Stadium.
Our first goal was simple in its execution. Moses was played in down the right, and watched on as his low cross took a slight touch off Dale Stephens into Hazard’s path. The Belgian created space for a shot and thrashed it past Mat Ryan from 10 yards out, marking his 100th career league goal in style. Sixty-four of those have come in a Chelsea shirt.
