Chelsea's Victor Moses scores first English Premier League goal of the season

Brighton boss Chris Hughton still in the market for a striker

Hazard opened the scoring for the visitors in the third minute, striking into the top left from a Victor Moses pass in the penalty area. Substitute Charly Musonda Jr.in a rare appearance also assisted Moses' late goal in the 89th minute.

The three points take Chelsea up into third position ahead of Liverpool, who play Swansea City on Monday. However, the Blues would not care about this as they had only managed to score one goal in four previous games in all competitions. Moses scampered down the right flank, and his cross deflected into the path of Hazard, who shifted the ball brilliantly on to his right foot before lashing a strike past Mathew Ryan.

But it was the Blues' second goal, a team effort, that has Twitter roaring.

The Brazil global was involved in some slick interplay with Hazard and Michy Batshuayi, leaving the Brighton defence all at sea before expertly finishing past Mat Ryan.

Things could have been different for Chelsea as Brighton had two decent penalty shouts turned down with the score at 2-0.

Caballero was huge against Norwich in the week, but this did not calm his nerves as his Premier League debut for the Blues in the absence of Thibaut Courtois who was nursing an injury hardly started perfectly. I didn't see these two situations so I can't give an evaluation'.

"We are still actively trying to bring in a centre-half and then the possibility of Connor Goldson going out on loan".

Marcos Alonso: Not his best game and his ball-watching could have proved costly when Schelotto caught him on his heels and went through on goal.

Hazard lit up the Amex Stadium again when he finished off a dazzling solo run from the halfway line with an emphatic finish in the 77th minute.

While Chelsea were busy counting their goals Brighton and Hove Albion were counting their cautions as three of the players received yellow cards in the 36th, 56th and 79th minutes respectively.

A sloppy foul from Duffy dead centre 30 yards out from goal nearly gifted Chelsea a third, as Willian's free kick struck Ryan's left hand post.

It capped a tremendous day for the Blues.

They were hit by injuries to four players as well as bans for Alvaro Morata and Pedro following Wednesday night's chaotic FA Cup tie against Norwich. Conte will be delighted with how easy they made it look.
