Chelsea 1 – 1 Brighton

Substitute Danny Welbeck scored a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser for Brighton to deny Chelsea victory and deal a blow to their hopes of keeping pace with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.

Chelsea looked set to move three points clear of fellow title contenders Liverpool when Romelu Lukaku marked his first top-flight start for two months by giving his side a lead, which they held until the 91st minute.

Brighton carved out 18 chances in total at Stamford Bridge but looked set for disappointment before Welbeck met Marc Cucurella’s chipped cross.

On a bad night for Chelsea, they also lost defenders Reece James and Andreas Christensen to injury.

The draw takes Chelsea into second place, a point above Liverpool, but they won’t take any solace in that. This is two more gone. Next up for the Blues… a home clash against Liverpool. That’s simply a must-win game for both with City starting to pull clear. It’s still only 1-0 for Pep’s pacesetters at Brentford as they approach the hour mark but it’s hard to imagine them not taking all three points.
