Danny Welbeck thwarts the Blues’ win

Suara.com – Brighton & Hove Albion striker Danny Welbeck ruined the victory in front of Chelsea’s eyes against his team in the match week 20 of the Premier League, Thursday (30/12/2021) early morning WIB.

In that match at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea went 1-0 up in the 28th minute thanks to a Romelu Lukaku goal, but Danny Welbek’s late goal forced the game to 1-1.

Chelsea, who on paper are superior to their opponents, were surprisingly bombarded by Brighton, especially in the second half where the visitors were able to gain possession of the ball up to 52 percent.

This dominance was converted through 18 attempted shots, six of which met the target and resulted in a point thanks to Welbeck’s goal in the final minutes of the match.

Despite failing to win, the addition of one point was enough to lift Chelsea up to second place in the standings with 42 points, displacing Liverpool (41) who lost the day before.

Meanwhile, Brighton, who are trying to rediscover their stellar form as at the start of the season, can only move up one strip to 10th with 24 points, according to the Premier League’s official website.

Both only rested two days after Boxing Day, not making both teams play lazy. Brighton threatened first through Tariq Lamptey’s deflected shot, otherwise the hosts would have taken the lead had Cesazr Azpilicueta’s shot not hit the post.

Chelsea, slowly finding their rhythm, took the lead in the 28th minute when Lukaku headed home from Mason Mount’s corner.

Brighton forward Neal Maupay fell in an aerial duel with Lukaku but VAR confirmed the goal was still valid for Chelsea.

The goal seemed to boost the spirits of the visitors and goalkeeper Edouard Mendy was forced to save from Adam Lallana’s shot in the 38th minute, while five minutes later Lamptey’s shot on a wild ball landed on the roof of the net.
