Chelsea didn’t show off in their best light, but came to grips with Brighton.
After the success ofArsenal or Liverpool upstream, Chelsea was expected at the turn on Monday night, for his Premier League debut. The Blues, who spent more than 200 million euros to bring in players of the caliber of Timo werner or Kai havertz, both established in addition, appear to be serious candidates for the national crown.
Giroud remained on the sidelines
But this first release in 2020-2021, in the lair of Brighton, was not the most successful, quite the contrary. The Londoners showed nothing, and even suffered in the first half. Nevertheless, the victory is at the rendezvous for Frank Lampard (1-3). Yes Olivier Giroud remained on the sidelines throughout the game, Timo Werner had the opportunity to quickly get into action. The German international took full advantage of a risky recovery from the Seagulls to obtain a penalty, transformed by Jorginho (0-1, 23rd).
Disappointing Kai Havertz
For his part, his young compatriot was rather in difficulty in this meeting, like the London collective as a whole. The situation was even very badly embarked when the Belgian Leandro trossard managed to equalize with a strike from the left on which Kepa Arrizabalaga is not exempt from all reproach (1-1, 54th). But in the process, the young Reece james unleashes an exceptional shot of power and precision (1-2, 56th) that hits the mark. The Blues did not doubt for long, and the French Kurt zouma drove home the point later (1-3, 66th).
The big debut of Thiago Silva against the Reds?
Something else will probably have to be shown next Sunday, at Stamford Bridge against the Liverpool fc (5.30 p.m.). A shock that could correspond to the great beginnings of Thiago silva in his new colors, the Brazilian having been left to rest for the victorious opposition of the day.
