Premier League: With Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, Chelsea register 3-1 win over Brighton

A Chelsea team featuring just two of its slew of high-profile and expensive signings got off to a winning start in the English Premier League by beating Brighton 3-1 on Monday.

Timo Werner and Kai Havertz — signed for a combined $160 million — didn't manage to score at Amex Stadium, either, with Chelsea's goals coming from Jorginho, Reece James and Kurt Zouma.

James' was the most spectacular and the most crucial, the right back's swerving piledriver from 30 meters regaining the lead for Chelsea at 2-1 in the 56th minute, just two minutes after Brighton equalized through Leandro Trossard.

Zouma's deflected volley from a corner in the 66th then gave Chelsea some breathing space.

“I thought we were OK,” Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said. "I liked the work ethic and discipline of the team.

“We have been together for four days. ... To expect everything to click on day one would have been difficult.”
