Chelsea "needed the win" over Brighton, said boss Frank Lampard after his first home victory as a Premier League manager.
"We haven't had a 90-minute game where we've controlled it enough [before now]," Lampard told BBC Sport. "The only disappointment is we didn't have more goals. We got a clean sheet as well. It is good for the confidence of everyone.
"We had a lot of shots in the first half, but had weak finishing and a bit of bad luck. You do start to wonder but you have to remain confident it will come and it did."
