Willian’s deflected effort seals deserved win for Chelsea over Brighton

Stamford Bridge is in danger of becoming the happiest ground in the country. The crowd remained patient even when Chelsea were struggling to break Brighton & Hove Albion down and it turned into a carnival atmosphere once Frank Lampard’s side, gifted a lead by a catastrophic error from Adam Webster, pulled clear of their opponents in the second half.Such is the effect of having Lampard barking orders from the dugout during these transitional times in this corner of west London. Chelsea’s supporters were not this understanding when it was Maurizio Sarri standing there last season. These days, though, they even bellow Jorginho’s name. A divisive figure last year, the Italy midfielder has emerged as a leader in recent weeks and it was his penalty that set Chelsea on their way to their first home win in the league under Lampard.
