Brighton 0-1 Chelsea

47: Penalty appeal! Simon Adingra goes down under a challenge from Malo Gusto. Just having another look… VAR decides there’s not enough contact for a spot-kick despite a clash of knees.

Roberto de Zerbi is having a word with the fourth official about it.

45: Right then, as things stand Chelsea have themselves a lovely Europa League spot to look forward to next season. If things stayed the same, all they would need is a point on the final day against Bournemouth to clinch sixth.

A win against Bournemouth and Tottenham lose to Sheffield United – they could even get up to fifth!

We’re back underway. Lewis Dunk comes off having failed to recover from that knock earlier. He’s replaced by teenage Argentine full-back Valentin Barco with Igor moving alongside Adam Webster.

HT: Chelsea take a deserved lead into the break. It could really have been more than that with Nicolas Jackson’s miss and his disallowed goal. Brighton have pieced a few nice things together but haven’t gone close other than that Joao Pedro effort a few moments ago.

52: Nicolas Jackson has another opportunity to double Chelsea’s lead but he’s struck Conor Gallagher’s wicked low cross miles over the crossbar.

Woodwork! Joao Pedro strikes the bar with a firm header from Tariq Lamptey’s cross. Did Dorde Petrovic get a touch? Might have been. Very faint.

49: Disallowed goal! Nicolas Jackson heads the ball into the back of the Brighton net to make it 2-0 to the visitors but referee Michael Salisbury has blown his whistle. It’s been chalked off for a two-handed push by the Chelsea striker. Might also have been offside actually.

Once again, I wouldn’t mind seeing another replay of that. Didn’t look hugely forceful.

48: Julio Enciso with a few flicks and tricks releases Simon Adingra, but he’s offside.

In other news, Manchester United have taken the lead at Old Trafford courtesy of Kobbie Mainoo. That sees Chelsea sat in sixth position – three points ahead of United and Newcastle.
