The Blues needed the win over Brighton, said boss Frank Lampard. This marked Lampard’s first club home victory as a Premier League manager.

Chelsea deservedly won against Brighton to make it nine wins out of nine league games. This marked an all-time Premier League/Football League record.

Lampard’s side led at Stamford Bridge when Jorginho scored a penalty after Adam Webster fouled Mason Mount.

Albion, who has not won in the league since the opening day, briefly rallied and Dan Burn’s header hit the crossbar.

However, William sealed the victory with a deflected strike from Callum Hudson-Odoi’s pass.

Chelsea is currently in the sixth position in the Premier League table while Brighton falls to 16th.

Lampard said, “We haven’t had a 90-minute game where we’ve controlled it enough. The only disappointment is we didn’t have more goals. We got a clean sheet as well. It is good for the confidence of everyone.”

“We had a lot of shots in the first half but had weak finishing and a bit of bad luck. You so start to wonder but you have to remain confident it will come and it did.”

The Blues get the job done

Chelsea has been easy on the eye in this season but has dropped points regularly.

With 25 goals in their opening six league games, they had not won at home in three top-flight matches.

Lampard had registered the worst record of any Blues manager this millennium after nine games in all competitions with no clean sheets.

During the first half, it looked as if they were going to be frustrated with none of their 17 shots going on. Mount went closest when his free-kick from the left-wing evaded everyone and hit the post.

With Abraham and Pedro managing five shots each, both had three of them on target without finding the net.

But the Blues pressed on. They got their reward when Webster fouled Mount with Jorginho scoring his second goal of the season from the spot.

They dominated in the entire game, bar a short period and Willian blasted home his first Premier League goal since January.

English young stars, Abraham, Mount and Tomori impressed Lampard despite none of them managing to score.

Hudson-Odoi came on for his first Premier League game of the season after recovering from an Achilles problem.

“It is great for the club and a long time coming,” said Lampard. “The work is done in the academy. The mentality is great. They want to play for this club.”
