Chelsea’s four worst players in grim Brighton loss as Graham Potter’s Blues embarrassed

Chelsea were hammed 4-1 on Graham Potter’s return to Brighton on Saturday afternoon.


Graham Potter suffered a miserable return to Brighton as Chelsea slumped to their first defeat under their new manager at the Amex Stadium. The Blues found themselves 2-0 down after 14 minutes, and 3-0 down by half-time, as the Seagulls ran riot on the south coast. Chelsea pulled one back through Kai Havertz after the break but couldn’t muster another goal before Pascal Gross made it 4-1 late on. Express Sport looks at four of the poorest performers for the Londoners.

Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling has struggled of late and is now eight games without a goal for the Blues. The £47.5million summer signing was again deployed as a left wing-back here and looked out of place, misplacing 50 per cent of his passes.

The former Manchester City man failed to make any real impact on the match and it was of very little surprise that he was among the first Chelsea players substituted off on the hour mark. The wing-back experiment is not working with the England international.
