Chelsea were condemned to a third straight defeat under Frank Lampard in stunning fashion as 19-year-old Brighton star Julio Enciso came off the bench to score a potential goal of the season.
The Blues had initially taken the lead through Conor Gallagher, whose deflected strike found the back of the net.

Brighton were thoroughly dominant, as they enjoyed 67.95% possession in the opening 45 minutes, which was the most of any away team.
Their dominance eventually paid off, but it came from an unlikely source as Enciso, who replaced Joel Veltman at halftime, scored a screamer in the 69th minute.
It all came from a mistake from Reece James, which was pounced on by Solly March, who fed an unmarked Enciso and the Paraguayan did the rest.
Here is how sections of fans reacted on social media after the goal:
"Brighton's scouts are the best, they are gonna make a huge profit in transfers come end season," One fans said.
"He's been highly regarded for years now. The only shocker was that Brighton signed him," another added.

"Brighton has actually been tracking a lot of Latin American talent, look at their squad details once and one may understand how they’re low-key targeting players no one ever heard of" Another fan said.
