Morata, Alonso lead Chelsea victory over Brighton


But while City have a 16-point lead on Chelsea, Morata remains optimistic.

The Blues had won 4 out of their last 6 in all competitions and manager Antonio Conte has urged his team on numerous occasions to improve the consistency of their performances if they are to secure a place in next season's Champions League after admitting that the Premier League title is out of reach.

Albion held Chelsea to a first-half draw as the teams met competitively for the first time since 1989.

Alvaro Morata scored on his return from suspension as Chelsea eased past Brighton 2-0 in the English Premier League on Tuesday.

"We have another game against Stoke, our last game of the year, and it's important to keep winning and getting points".

"What we have to do is to pick up all the points available by winning every game". If we win, we can hope that they lose, because that is all we can do'.

Varun will next be seen in YRF's Sui Dhaaga opposite Anushka Sharma while Shraddha is all gearing up for her huge release Saaho . Remo D'souza who has choreographed the special video maintains, "Sometimes things just magically fall into place".

However, the Spanish full-back was keen to deflect the attention off his own performances as he concentrated on praising Chelsea's display overall following their Boxing Day win over Brighton at Stamford Bridge.

The breakthrough came straight after the break as Cesar Azpilicueta, who hardly put a foot wrong all afternoon, floated a long range pass on to the head of Alvaro Morata who put away his 10th goal of the season.

'Not only Cesar and I but the entire team have a good understanding.

"It's great to be playing here at Chelsea and playing with Cesar".

'He is an exceptional person and an exceptional player. We never want to concede that early in a second half but I thought we gathered ourselves after that. It was a very important victory for us like every match will be for the rest of the season'.
