How Adam Webster embarrassed Kai Havertz with a reverse stepover

How Adam Webster embarrassed Kai Havertz with a reverse stepover

Last night, Brighton put in yet another impressive display against a top side, earning themselves a draw against the European Champions Chelsea.

The Blues’ lacklustre form saw no improvement during their trip to the Amex, as they managed to scrape out a 1-1 draw.

Throughout the 90 minutes, the Seagulls looked the more fluid side going forward and were also solid defensively.

Their standout performer on the night, Adam Webster, excelled in both halves of the pitch.

The English centre-back was at his imperious best when defending and even grabbed Brighton’s equalizer via a bullet header.

The 27-year-old’s passing range was also quite impressive alongside his ability with the ball.

In one instance, the centre-back went on an offensive adventure and dashed past 4 Chelsea players in the process.

Another highlight for the defender came in the form of a simple trick working to great effect.

A clip that emerged online shows the defender being pressed heavily by Kai Havertz.

Firstly, Webster gets to the ball before Havertz, he then showcases his composure under pressure and executes a reverse step over.

The manoeuvre and change of direction fooled the German forward, who lost his footing entirely and went sliding down on the turf.

The draw puts more distance between Brighton and the lower half of the table.

While Chelsea continues to stray further away from Man City, with the likes of Arsenal and West Ham breathing down their neck in competition for a top 4 spot.
