It was a difficult night in the English Premier League for Mat Ryan and Aaron Mooy with both involved in defeats for their respective clubs.
Ryan started in goals for Brighton and Hove Albion but could do little as a rampant Chelsea soared to a comprehensive 4-0 victory at the Amex Stadium.
Eden Hazard and Willian fired the visitors 2-0 up inside six minutes to seize control of the contest, with Hazard’s second and a strike from Victor Moses in the final 15 minutes sealing a big win for the Blues.
The defeat leaves Brighton in 16th spot on the EPL table, two points clear of the relegation zone.
Elsewhere, Mooy started and played a full 90 minutes as Huddersfield suffered a disappointing 2-0 loss away to Stoke City.
Second-half strikes to Joe Allen and Mame Biram Diou sealed a first-up win for new Stoke manager Paul Lambert at Bet365 Stadium.
Huddersfield remain in 14th spot after 24 matches.
In the Championship, Massimo Luongo got through a full shift as QPR fell to a 3-0 loss at home to Middlesbrough.
Jackson Irvine came on for the final 20 minutes as Hull City were beaten 1-0 at Sunderland.
