His Brighton team continued to win at Stamford Bridge 2-1 against Chelsea, the first team in the English Premier League, a club that collected 26 titles compared to “only” 8 titles for Zerby Club.
The whole miracle was designed by DE ZERBI
A victory beyond expectations as it was the first time Brighton had beaten Chelsea at home in their 122-year history.
Chelsea suffered the fourth defeat in the last 5 matches between the English Premier League and the Champions League.
However, the day looked like it was born under the right star for Chelsea, taking the lead in the 13th minute with Blues best Conor Gallagher, who was lucky to find a Lewis dunk deflection that completely cut Robert Sanchez.
However, Brighton does not get discouraged and crushes Chelsea with pressure leaving no room for the hosts who run like a blender.
Ivan Ferguson header hits the crossbar and is injured when he steps back. In his place is Danny Welbeck, who always scores 1-1 with his head as soon as he steps on the pitch.
Lampard’s quadruple substitution at the beginning of the second half does not change the text of the match. A change of more than 128 million euros, a change that says it all about the Blues market.
But there is nothing that can be done on a day that was supposed to give an all-Italian shot. Brighton produce play and chances by committing to Kepa on several occasions, Chelsea playing the restart as an unknown mid-table side.
De Zerbi cheers, waves his arms, shouts, and throws an ace up his sleeve to Paraguay’s Julio Enciso on the pitch who fired his right foot in from outside the area and latched the ball under a cross 20 minutes from time.
Chelsea hit and sank and Brighton see Europe.
Lampard has to lower his head and at the same time raise it to De Zerbi, because he is momentarily guilty of being the best Italian coach playing abroad and above all the coach showing the best football in the Premier League.
