GK – Robert Sanchez

The Spaniard put in a solid performance against his former club. The keeper wasn’t really called into action that often and he couldn’t do much with either of Brighton’s goals.

Again, Sanchez wasn’t perfect when kicking out from the back, with two errors that didn’t prove to be costly.

You do feel that, in the long term, Chelsea will be looking for an upgrade on the 26-year-old but it’s unlikely to be a priority for the January transfer window.

Wednesday’s opponents United have been pretty poor on their own patch. 3 defeats and just 8 goals scored in 7 league matches, so Sanchez may be hoping for a clean sheet.
