Chelsea cruised to a comfortable victory over Brighton to keep Champions League hope alive

Chelsea 3-0 Brighton & Hove Albion

A new-look Chelsea cruised to Premier League victory over Brighton & Hove Albion thanks to three excellent goals.

Olivier Giroud flicked home Callum Hudson-Odoi’s cross before Eden Hazard curled home from the edge of the box from Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s pass.

Loftus-Cheek then scored an excellent 25-yard strike into the top corner to seal victory.

The Blues, who have won their past 10 games against the Seagulls since 1967, move up to fifth in the league.

Next up for Chris Hughton’s Brighton is Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City.
