Kick-off tonight has been pushed back to 8:15pm, on account of the teams being delayed in arriving at the ground by those protests.
2* – Jorginho dallies on the ball in the corner of our own defensive area and loses. Kepa catches the subsequent cross.
6* – The game feels really irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, but I suppose in a strange way, events in the minutes and hours before kick-off have made it more important.
12* – A bit of a slow start but Havertz wins it up the pitch and finds Ziyech, who delivers towards the back post but Alonso can’t quite get on the end of it.
16* – Pulisic bursts through midfield after a great turn, but the counter slows down as Ziyech checks back. Chelsea then lose the ball to definitively waste the opportunity.
20* – Brighton giveaway goes straight to Jorginho, but he overcooks the through ball to Ziyech. Brighton try to clear, but the loose ball bounces to Havertz, who sees his snapshot saved by the goalkeeper. Chance, that.
34* – Rudiger and Bissouma collide in midfield, with the latter staying down briefly
40* – Ziyech wins a free kick wide right. Mount takes, but Brighton head clear.
45* – Bissouma catches Ziyech in the face, but it’s probably accidental and VAR agrees after a brief review. Ziyech stays down and gets a bit of treatment.
59* – Good goalkeeping from Sanchez, who is out sharply to intercept Mount’s ball through to Pulisic, who gets a proper whack on the way through off Ben White.
67* – A double change for Chelsea – Timo Werner and Callum Hudson-Odoi are on for Alonso and Havertz.
72* – White in late on Mount, after Mount had given the ball away at the back but Jorginho did well to cover.
80* – Almost brilliant! Danny Welbeck shapes for the top corner from 25 yards and Kepa is getting nowhere near it but it comes back off the woodwork
90* – Ben White halts Hudson-Odoi on the counter and having already been booked he’s on his way.
