"We need our full strength to overcome these obstacles, so no blame for the team. We tried everything, but you could see we were mentally and physically tired.

"We need some days off, we have now two days off then two days to prepare for the next match at home against Tottenham. The boys need some days off, there is no other solution."

The opening 15 minutes were a quiet affair at a chilly Amex Stadium, and Brighton could have taken an early lead. Danny Welbeck flicked the ball into Jakub Moder's path, but he just sent his effort wide. It took 14 minutes for Chelsea's first shot as Cesar Azpilicueta's effort was tipped over the crossbar by Robert Sanchez.

It was some neat play between N'Golo Kante and Ziyech on the right before the latter swept the ball under the outstretched leg of Alexis Mac Allister. Sanchez got a hand to it but it fizzed past him and into the back of the net.

Chelsea threatened a second soon after as Marcos Alonso fired a cross in from the left, but Sanchez was there to punch away. Jorginho then skied the rebound into the stands. It was a similar story for Callum Hudson-Odoi just before the break too, who looked certain to score on the angle, but lifted his effort over the crossbar.

Brighton continued to steal possession in a number of promising positions throughout the first half, but they ended it without a shot on target. However, immediately after the break, they fired a warning shot at Chelsea. Welbeck was fed down the left of the area, but lifted his shot over the target.

Jamie Carragher later said of the defender on Twitter: "Adam Webster's passing out from the back, with both feet is better than any other English central defender."

Immediately after the goal, Welbeck made way for Neal Maupay and Brighton kicked into another gear. The substitute striker continued to test the Chelsea defender, while Webster's Lionel Messi-inspired run into the area saw his squared ball easily collected by Kepa

Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel:

"We have to respect the opponent - it's very tough to play at Brighton. They played it like a cup game and the noise at the end of the whistle was like if we lost the game and it can very easily give you the impression that we lost, but we didn't.

"Other teams will struggle to get points here, and even tougher if you're full strength and not tired. There are some obstacles to overcome here and I refuse to be angry because it's not about the ambition.

"We were a bit lucky to be 1-0 ahead and you can take advantage to score a second one, but we struggled to show the quality. We know the reasons behind it and we demand a lot from us. But it's not the moment to be too harsh on the team."

Potter pleased with Brighton performance

Brighton manager Graham Potter to BT Sport:

"We're really pleased and proud of the performance definitely. We gave Chelsea a good game. Our performance was full of everything. It's not easy because they have some top players but the courage of our defenders... The boys played on the front foot as much as they could. They scored from not much but it was a performance I really enjoyed.

"We were well in the game and the boys could feel it was a good performance. Chelsea don't give much away so you have to work for everything. We could maybe test the goalkeeper more but I thought we had everything.

"Adam Webster and Dan Burn were fantastic. We looked like we were enjoying our football which is important. The players give it everything and when they make a mistake they work hard and recover for each other. As a coach that's all you can ask for.

"You could see the reaction from the supporters. They paid good money and enjoyed the performance."

Man of the match - Adam Webster

A captain's performance from the centre-back. Not only did he do his job at the back - racking up the most clearances in the Brighton team (6) - he nodded home brilliantly for Brighton's equaliser and had a hand in a few other attacking moments too.

He told BT Sport: "In the first half, we were by far the better team and it was a goal out of nowhere really with a littledeflection.

"It was a bit of a low blow for us, because we were the better team, but we stuck in there as we have done all season.

"We have gone behind quite a lot of times and have always shown a lot of character to come back and get something from the game."
