Comments:

League position: 16th Brighton and Hove Albion had now won one of their last 13 games in the Premier League games (lost seven) and failed to score in nine of them. The Seagulls had now lost all seven games so far in this season against the Premier League’s current top six and scored only one goal. Albion conceded four or more goals for only the second time in their last 84 league games.

Comments:

League position: 3rd This was Chelsea’s biggest away win at newly-promoted opposition in the Premier League since a 4-0 win at Leicester City on 11 January 2004. Eden Hazard scored the 100th goal of his league career (36 for Lille and 64 for Chelsea). Willian made his 50th consecutive Premier League appearance in this game; the longest such current run in the competition among outfield players.
