It’s yet another defeat for Chelsea on Saturday as they lost 1-2 to Brighton and Hove Albion at Stamford Bridge.

Julio Enciso’s screamer was the difference as
Brighton went on to secure their first-ever league win against Chelsea, thus taking them close to a possible European football campaign next season.

It was a dominant display from the visitors who staged a comeback in the game after a Conor Gallagher’s deflected opener had put the hosts ahead.

While Danny Wellbeck headed in a deserved equaliser, 19-year old Enciso made history by slotting in a 30-yard shot to give his side the ultimate victory.

It was a third consecutive defeats for Chelsea under their newly appointed caretaker manager and club legend, Frank Lampard.

In the Premier League, the result, which signals yet more trouble for Lampard and the blues leaves Chelsea 11th on the log, closer to the bottom in terms of points than fourth.

Chelsea will be back in action on Tuesday when they face Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final; kick-off 8pm.

Their next Premier League game is on Wednesday April 26 when they host Brentford at Stamford Bridge; kick-off 7.45pm
