  • Chelsea won their Premier League clash against Brighton by three goals to two
  • Enzo Fernandez and Levi Colwill were both on target for the West Londoners
  • The win leaves the Blues sitting in 10th place in the Premier League standings

Chelsea ace, Levi Colwill was among the goal-scorers as the Blues stunned Brighton and Hove Albion 3-2 at Stamford Bridge on December 3.

The hosts had to play with a man less for the entirety of the second half after Conor Gallagher was shown a red card at the stroke of half-time.

According to the Evening Standard, Enzo Fernandez opened the scoring for Chelsea in the 17th minute before Colwill doubled the advantage four minutes later from a corner.

Colwill's goal was subjected to a review before it was finally given, prompting a wild celebration from the youngster.

The Chelsea ace was spotted running off with his hand in the air but stopped celebrating immediately after he remembered who he had scored against.

Why Colwill stopped celebrating after his goal

Sportbible reports that the Englishman held his hands up apologetically after he learned that he had scored against Brighton.

This may have to do with Colwill's connection with the Seagulls, having played for them on loan last season.

At the time, the young defender impressed for Brighton, with his performances earning him a place in Chelsea's first team under Mauricio Pochettino.

He was initially linked with a permanent move to the AMEX club, but the Blues blocked the proposed summer move.

Meanwhile, Pochettino's men survived a late scare from Brighton to secure maximum points during the tie, with Fernandez adding a second from the penalty spot in the 65th minute.

Chelsea most indisciplined team in EPL

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on statistics showing Chelsea have the EPL's worst discipline - if recent data is anything to go by.

The Blues have struggled with discipline on the field this season, evidenced by the number of yellow cards they have received.

According to data from Football Transfers, the Blues' players have received a league-high 47 bookings so far this campaign.
