The Blues are third, the same point as Liverpool and with six points above their London rival in fourth position. With six points below the League leader, Chelsea FC will be hoping this doesn't slip out of their hand.
Tuchel's men settled for a draw against Brighton after a series of missed chances. The Blues were comfortable in the first half after Lukaku gave them the lead in the early hour of the game, Brighton proved too stubborn to break in the second half and was awarded a goal when Danny Welbeck came on as a late substitute to level with the blues.
The Blues have now lost eleven points from winning position this season. A record they will have to do away with if they are to compete.
Liverpool and Salah proved to be human again after the defeat on the road to Leicester City. The result means they will be six points behind the league leader.
Liverpool did all they could against Leicester but couldn't get a positive result. It was a bad day for the league top scorer after losing from the spot-kick. The Egyptian would have given the visitor an early lead but was disappointed at the end of the match. Leicester grew into the game and finally seized their opportunity when Lukman slotted home from close range to give the home team a deserving lead.
The result isn't pleasant for the title contender as they are going to lose three of their star men to AFCON. Playing Chelsea at the bridge isn't for the weak and the Reds will have a whole lot to do if they want anything from this match.
