Brighton fans give their verdict on Chelsea’s 4-1 win

It will go down in history as one of the great opportunities we saw at the Amex.

We asked these longtime Albion fans to recap the 4-1 win over Chelsea.

Then we talked about individual players that caught their eye, unfair as that may seem on this occasion.

And while it was a unique afternoon against Graham Potter’s side, we asked if something like that vibe could be recreated to turn the Amex into a cauldron more often.

See if you agree with what they said…

1. What were your thoughts on Albion’s performance against Chelsea?

Colin Beales: What an achievement! Players felt what the game meant to fans and unleashed Potter in a performance he hadn’t anticipated. The space created along the wings was there to be exploited, and we’ve done that time and time again. In the second half, Chelsea licked their wounds and tried, but the best team stood their ground to remind Potter what he gave up for his raise.

James Heasman: That was a great performance from the Albion. Roberto de Zerbi prepared the players well and although I was nervous to see Pascal Gross take on Raheem Sterling, like many others he did a really good job. Chelsea had no answer to the high tempo and were completely outclassed and overwhelmed.

Alan Brownings: It’s so nice to have everyone there from the start, an early goal and a desire to get up front quickly makes football that much more enjoyable. It was wonderful!

2. Who was your pick among the Albion players?

Colin Beales: Solly was a major threat in the first half and Sanchez made a few necessary saves, but Estupinan’s performance was another class throughout. Simply the best we’ve seen from him and for me by far the best player out there.

James Heasman: Everyone played really well, special mentions for Robert Sanchez, Solly March and Moises Caicedo but my man of the match was Pervis Estupinan, who played like a £60m full-back.

Alan Brownings: A top performance from Sanchez and great interaction between Estupinan and Caicedo on the left, Solly March also had a great game and I definitely want to see a lot more from Enciso. But I think Sanchez comes off with a series of great saves.

3. Is it too much to ask that the anti-Chelsea atmosphere – or at least something like that – is regularly repeated at the Amex?

Colin Beales: We’ve seen games like this on Amex in the past, like Sheffield Wednesday in the playoffs, where fans can come together for a common cause. It’s clearly in the hands of the fans to make the floor a cauldron, but to me it’s a shame that many come just to be entertained and expect others to set the atmosphere for them. So, unfortunately, I don’t expect things to change.

James Heasman: While it shouldn’t be, unfortunately it probably is, as the fans only seem to tune in when provoked by something. The first Doncaster game, Sheffield Wednesday in the play-offs, Man Utd at home and of course Chelsea as examples. The crowd will certainly be ready for Palace, but otherwise, who knows?

Alan Brownings: It’s difficult, isn’t it? The opponent, Potter, the entire ex-Albion coaching staff, Cucurella, and one Albion side were in favor from the start. I think the more we move forward from sideways football to attacking football, the better chance there is of maintaining that.
