The Blues lost more vital ground in the Premier League title race as Danny Welbeck cancelled out Romelu Lukaku’s opener deep into second half stoppage-time as the Seagulls earned a well-deserved point.

As well as this, though, there will be some heads turning to the January transfer window that opens later this week.

There are plenty of names being linked with a move to Chelsea, as well as some of Thomas Tuchel’s men possibly leaving next month.
