Chelsea have dropped two points from the winning position against Brighton on Wednesday night. This draw was Tuchel’s third in his last four EPL games as Blues’ manager.

Thomas Tuchel’s men were held to a 1-1 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion FC in the Premier League on Wednesday night. Chelsea has again dropped points from the winning position as they were leading in the whole game but the last-minute equalizer from Danny Welbeck was enough for the visitors to take one point from this game. This draw was Chelsea’s third in the last four Premier League games. Tuchel’s men are searching for the momentum they had at the start of the season. As per experts, Chelsea FC is considered to be a strong title contender for the 2021/22 Premier League season since the start of the season but with the form they are currently in, it seems it will be very difficult for the Blues to overtake giants Man City to win the title this season.


Talking about their match against Brighton which was held on Wednesday night, Romelu Lukaku was been named in the starting 11 by manager Thomas Tuchel. The Belgian striker also scored the opening goal of the game in the 28th minute. That goal from Lukaku was coming as the way Chelsea was playing in the first half, it was very difficult for the visitors to restrict them from scoring.

Half-time ended with a scoreline of 1-1. But the whole scenario of the match changed in the second half as Brighton came out as a dominating team and they kept on creating chances on Chelsea’s goal. The visitors had 18 shots on goal as compared to the host’s 11. Brighton & Hove Albion did find an equalizer in the regulation time as former Manchester United and Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck scored an amazing heading goal which helps the visitors earn a point at Stamford Bridge. With this result, Chelsea is in the 2nd position with 42 points behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City who has taken a massive lead of 8 points after winning against Brentford on the same day.
