Alvaro Morata opened the scoring 52 seconds into the second half

By Luke Reddy | BBC Sport

Chelsea recorded a sixth straight home win as an improved second-half display proved too much for Brighton at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Conte's side were frustrated in an opening period in which Tiemoue Bakayoko and Victor Moses went close.

But less than a minute into the second period Alvaro Morata headed his 10th Premier League goal from Cesar Azpilicueta's fine cross.

The goal changed the dynamic and eased pressure on the home side, while Brighton never looked capable of mounting a serious threat.

And after forcing two saves in one minute - first from a free-kick and then from a header - Marcos Alonso sealed the win moments later with a glancing header from Cesc Fabregas' corner.

The win moves Chelsea on to 42 points with second-placed Manchester United but they remain 13 adrift of Premier League leaders Manchester City, who play Newcastle on Wednesday.
