Checkout Who Chelsea Will Face Next After Tonight's Draw

The Blues were held to a goalless draw at home by the Seagulls in the English Premier League, a match overshadowed by reports that Chelsea had ditched their plan to join the proposed European Super League.

In a setback for the Blues push to qualify for next campaign's UEFA Champions League - the competition they had planned to snub - Thomas Tuchel's side failed to find a way through the well marshalled backline of relegation-threatened Brighton.

Ex-Liverpool forward Adam Lallana wasted a glorious opportunity when he pounced on a mistake by the Blues centre defender Kurt Zouma but dragged his shot wide in the 77th minute. Ex-Man United forward Danny Welbeck struck the crossbar 2 minutes later as the Seagulls pushed for a shock victory

Brighton centre-defenderr Ben White was red carded for a 2nd yellow card in the 92nd minute.

The draw pushed Thomas Tuchel's side up into 4th place on goal difference above the Hammers who they're due visit on Saturday. The Seagulls remained in 16th place, 7 points ahead of Relegation threatened, Fulham.
