Premier League Result: Alvaro Morata Scores As Chelsea Beat Brighton 2-0

Chelsea recorded a sixth straight home win as an improved second-half display proved too much for Brighton at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Conte’s side were frustrated in an opening period in which Tiemoue Bakayoko and Victor Moses missed chances from close range. But less than a minute into the second half Alvaro Morata headed his 10th Premier League goal from Cesar Azpilicueta’s fine cross.

The goal changed the dynamic and eased pressure on the home side, while Brighton never looked capable of mounting a serious threat. And after forcing two saves in one minute – first from a free-kick and then from a header – Marcos Alonso sealed the win moments later with a glancing header from Cesc Fabregas’ corner.

The win moves Chelsea to one point behind second-placed Manchester United but they remain 13 adrift of Premier League leaders Manchester City, who play Newcastle on Wednesday.
