Brighton and Chelsea share the points

Danny Welbeck hit the post and Adam Lallana missed a glorious chance late on to deny Brighton a famous victory at Stamford Bridge in a 0-0 draw with Chelsea.

Thomas Tuchel’s side never got going in a game delayed by 15 minutes due to protests outside Stamford Bridge against the European Super League stopping both teams from reaching the ground, and managed only three shots on target all night against a stoic Brighton backline.

Instead, the visitors should have snatched victory late on but passed up a couple of gilt-edged chances, the first coming after Kurt Zouma was caught in possession by Neal Maupay, who found Lallana – only for the substitute to miss the far post when clean through.

Seconds later, Chelsea were again caught on the ball as Jorginho was robbed, allowing Welbeck to strike from 20 yards, but the width of the woodwork denied him a superb late winner, before Ben White was sent off for a second yellow in added time.
