Brighton arrived at Stamford Bridge having been lifted by the weekend win against Watford, their first victory in eight games.
But with meetings with Newcastle and Bournemouth — both teams in the bottom half of the table — to come over the holiday period, Albion manager Chris Hughton opted to make four changes to his line-up.
Saturday’s matchwinner Pascal Gross was held back on the bench, along with winger Anthony Knockaert and skipper Bruno Saltor.
The changes, though, appeared to have little effect on Hughton’s side, who quickly demonstrated they were capable of making life hard for Conte’s men.
And had striker Tomer Hemed not mistimed his jump when he rose to meet Markus Suttner’s cross, they might have taken an early lead.
