Around 100 seconds after Brighton equalised against Chelsea thanks to a wonderful strike from Leandro Trossard, Reece James produced a moment of magic to restore the Blues’ lead.
The full-back immediately made up for out-of-form stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga’s blunder when he picked the ball up from Jorginho around 35 yards away from goal.
The 20-year-old rocketed the ball into the top corner, despite being off-balance, Mat Ryan had no chance of stopping this thunderbolt.
Take a look at the youngster’s fine hit below:

James really couldn’t have marked his first top-flight goal any better.
