Chelsea were in rampant form on Saturday afternoon, defeating Brighton & Hove Albion away from home by a four goal margin.
The Blues knew victory was a must to keep the pressure up on their fellow top four contenders and battled hard for their win, with the Seagulls providing a classier performance than the 4-0 scoreline suggested.
Eden Hazard, Willian and Victor Moses were the goal heroes on the afternoon, scoring early in the first half and late in the second half.
Fans were delighted with the performance and outside of the goalscorers had particular praise for Michy Batshuayi, who combined with Willian to assist the second goal of the afternoon.
It was a big chance for the Belgian to impress in Premier League action due to Alvaro Morata’s suspension and while he didn’t find the back of the net, he worked hard for the team throughout the 90 minutes.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance…
Hazard was brilliant today – absolutely unplayable. But a big hand to Batshuayi too – worked his socks off. #CFC

Superb example of why Chelsea must not sign a 'target man'. For all Batshuayi's faults that is the kind of link of play that gets the best out of Hazard and Willian and that is when we can be at our best #CFC https://t.co/ssojtiugwz

To be fair to Bakayoko and Batshuayi, both of them have been very good today. #CFC

Batshuayi’s linkup play with Hazard and Willian in the first half has been much better than any of Morata’s performances over the last month. Would be stupid to loan him out, needs a goal this game to boost his confidence though. #CFC
