Chelsea Defeat Brighton 3-1 In Season Opener

Lampard

West-London side, Chelsea on Monday night defeated Premier League side Brighton 3-1 on their season opener.

The club manager has been active in the transfer market to sign one or two players, the blues boss has spent around £200 million ($257 million) on a host of new signings.

Germany striker Werner, who was signed by Chelsea for £53 million from Leipzig, won the penalty that Jorginho converted to put Chelsea ahead

Kai Havertz, who was signed for £70 million from Bayer Leverkusen, wasn’t quite so impactful.

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga was guilty of another mistake when Leandro Trossard equalised for Brighton.

But Reece James’ superb strike put Chelsea back in front before Kurt Zouma’s deflected effort sealed the points.

It’s a good start for Lampard’s team.
