Antonio Conte had some choice words to say after Chelsea's latest victory

Conte was angered by the decision not to refer a challenge on Willian by Timm Klose early in the first period of extra time to the Video Assistant Referee, describing the decision of match referee Graham Scott as a "big mistake".

"With Manchester City being so dominant, Chelsea are not in a position to win the league now, so I think it's a time to regroup in the summer".

He was dropped by Antonio Conte after a dreadful performance against Roma in the Champions League.

Chelsea have been active in the transfer market, and they're looking likely to sign a striker.

He was substituted off in the middle of the second half after initially coming back on, but it is understood to be just bruising and not a concussion.

The playmaker made sure there were no worries about scoring goals without Alvaro Morata when he drilled in the opening goal just three minutes in.

I am very calm in this aspect because I am working with my players in the right way and I am very happy for their commitment.

Batshuayi has struggled to hold down a regular spot in the first team at Chelsea since his move to Stamford Bridge from Marseille back in the summer of 2016.

Chelsea flew into a two-goal lead before Brighton barely had time to catch their breath. The contribution of Moses is no doubt likely to tickle the fancy of Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr who is hoping that his players enjoy good playing time in their clubs with a view to remaining in super form ahead of the World Cup where they will face Argentina, Croatia and Iceland.

But I try, I try to work in training and when I'm on the pitch I try to give everything.

'The player is okay.

Eden Hazard says Chelsea do not need a new striker.

Moments later it was Brighton who were grateful to the woodwork, and Ryan, who did well to palm Willian's goal-bound free-kick against the upright.

However, two strong appeals for a penalty from the home support were both waved away by Jon Moss the referee, which has football fans on Twitter calling for VAR.

Belgian playmaker Hazard then took his tally for the season to 11 with a fine solo goal before Victor Moses added a late fourth.
