Brighton Further Damage Chelsea Fading Title Hopes. by MANNABBQGRILLS: 11:22pm On Jan 18
Brighton provided another huge blow to Chelsea's dwindling hopes of winning this season's Premier League title by coming from behind to claim a well-deserved draw at the Amex Stadium.

Adam Webster found all the space he needed to head in from a corner in the second half and give the home side a point to reward a display full of energy and endeavour.

Thomas Tuchel's side started poorly and lacked authority throughout, opening the scoring against the run of play through Hakim Ziyech's well-struck low drive from outside the box.

But they failed to build on the moment, never looking assured, and for all their desperate intent simply could not find a way to restore their lead and claim the vital win.

The gap between the third-placed Blues and imperious leaders Manchester City is 12 points, with Thomas Tuchel's side having played a game more - surely an insurmountable gulf.

Brighton are now unbeaten in six games in all competitions and continue to grow in confidence and class under Graham Potter.

Lifted by their equaliser, they looked the side far more likely to win the game in the final 30 minutes, instead having to settle for a point that leaves them on 29, three short of a European qualification spot.

Albion again demonstrate their progress under Potter

Brighton can take great pride in being the bookends for a 21-day period that has seen Chelsea's title hopes dwindle.

The two points Albion have claimed from those games will do less for their own league standing than the four they have denied the Blues will do to damage theirs, but they are symbolic of the huge strides this side is taking under Potter.

In both of those games, Brighton have had to come from behind, but each time a draw was the least they deserved against a side packed with elite talent, managed by a coach Fifa consider the best in the world and with fresh memories of European glory.

At Stamford Bridge they managed 18 efforts at goal before Danny Welbeck nodded in the last of them in injury time.

The stats say they had eight shots in total at the Amex, but this barely does justice to the pressure they applied, the territory they claimed and the promising openings that went begging but for a misplaced pass or a last-gasp interception.

Despite leaving out first-choice forward pair Neal Maupay and Leandro Trossard, the Seagulls looked a constant threat. Jakub Moder fired just wide early on, Welbeck fluffed a couple of shots, crosses flew regularly through the box as the European champions dug in.

Webster's equalising header from Alexis Mac Allister's corner was as good as any you will see - powerful and precise after a run to evade a marker and into space.

The harshest critic might suggest that Albion have once again failed to make their dominance count - something Potter's side were booed off the pitch for here not too long ago.

But this is a side punching way above its weight and on the up.

The fact that Tottenham Hotspur, and Arsenal still have matches yet to be played and Chelsea isn't taking the full 3 points is a big issue. In the next few weeks, Chelsea might not be in the top 5 on the EPL table

Damnnn!!! I knew it and I Said it... It's Either Tuchel Sells Us or We sell Tuchel..

Dude shouting about other cups, what gives the stupid idiot the assurance that we'll win any of the rest Trophies..

I guess this guy doesn't know that Abramovich doesn't care about all these nonsense: Once you Bleep up... Then you're shown the exit way .


Most times I do say it; Tuchel isn't any better than Ole Gunner... Both of them are dumb fools.. Tuchel doesn't read games , we only win by luck.. aswear

I could remember vividly, we played a game where we had no single shot in the first half and this nincompoop of a coach still didn't bring in Barkley knowing fully well that he's among those that plays outside shots in the team .. the dumb fool had to keep him in Bench till the 80's when Chelsea had their first shot on target...

Chelsea chances of winning the premier league have been dented more and more. My heart bleeds for this Club because they might struggle to make top four. Gunners for life.

Tuchels system is obviously suffering now simply because of the absence of Reece James and Ben Chiwell...those two players were his wild card..

Thank you Brighton . At least City will retain their EPL title and Chelshit are most certain to lose their UCL title.
