Chelsea have now won nine out of their last twelve games in the premiership as they showed resilience and team spirit to defeat a brave Brighton and Hove Albion on Boxing day.A big relief for Antonio Conte and motivation for the boys after that frustrating draw away to Everton days ago.Striker Alvaro Moratta returned from suspension to head home his tenth goal of the campaign while Cesc Fabregas also started in midfield together with Tiemoune Bakayoko and Ngolo Kante.
Gary Cahil also made the starting line up as Conte’s rotational system seems to be working for the boys.The Italian manager is doing his best to reduce fatigue because of fixture congestion.Brighton stood firm all through the first half with great defending but regardless Chelsea still had some good attempts at goal.
Moratta almost gave the champions the lead after skillfully turning away from Shane Duffy to force a sharp save from Mat Ryan. Fabregas also went close in the nineteenth minute of a corner but shot wide.The former Barcelona man freed pacy wing back Victor Moses again in the twenty sixth minute but the Nigerian star didn’t make the most of it.
The half ended with Chelsea having the upper hand in possession and also attempts on goal.The tide soon turned when Ceaser Azpilicueta was given too much space to send a pinpoint cross to Moratta to head home the opener just a minute after. Original Headmaster na him this Moratta be..chai!
Moratta doing what he knows best
It‘s the sixth assist from Azpilicueta to Moratta as Chelsea now have the twelve headed goals this season,the most in the league.
Mat Ryan made two quick saves to keep Chelsea from getting their second goal but it didn’t last long as Marcos Alonso made it 2-0 at the hour mark after a beautiful delivery from Fabregas from the opposite flank.
Eden Hazard had his own chance at goal getting past a host of defenders and even beyond Ryan but Bakayoko couldn’t put in the final touch as he shot wide.Manager Chris Hutton brought in veteran striker Glenn Murphy and the big man forced a save from Thibaut Courtois as Chelsea held on to their two goal lead.If Manchester drop any point again na yawa for dem head..we go just waka pass dem sharply. We no dey look Uche face..Mancity U sef..errm well make i no talk anything..
After this winning and because na Christmas season I nor go flog anybody.dem kpef me wella
8/10 for coach wey sabi Conte..all my players take am.7/10
