Chelsea defender Reece James scored a stunning long-range effort and got an assist as they began their Premier League season with a victory at Brighton.
James put Chelsea 2-1 up minutes after Brighton’s Leandro Trossard equalised Jorginho’s first-half penalty, won by new signing Timo Werner.
Kurt Zouma then volleyed James’ corner – his shot deflected in off Brighton defender Adam Webster to make it 3-1.
At 2-1, Lewis Dunk headed wide a great chance to bring Brighton level.
Brighton lost new signing Adam Lallana to injury right on half-time; he was making his debut, having signed on a free transfer from champions Liverpool in July.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, meanwhile, handed debuts to summer signings Werner and Kai Havertz.
