Brighton enjoyed a mesmerising home victory against Newcastle United at the Amex Stadium on Saturday. Brighton were keen to hang onto their position at the top of league and extend their winning run, following a 2-1 victory against Southampton. Newcastle, on the other hand, had managed to pick up a single point in their encounter with Aston Villa. As the table looks today, Brighton are currently 16th with 32 points from 29 matches, while Newcastle sit in 17th, with 28 points from 29.
Brighton didn’t take long to get on the score-sheet, with Leandro Trossard opening the rout just before half-time
Brighton started strong in the second half and were able to dominate, with a goal from Danny Welbeck in the 51st minute. The Seagulls then netted once more and increased their advantage thanks to a goal from Neal Maupay in the 68th minute with a final score of 3-0.
Both managers used the full entitlement. For Brighton, Alexis MacAllister, Andi Zeqiri and Davy Propper, came on for Leandro Trossard, Danny Welbeck and Jakub Moder, Newcastle brought on Jeff Hendrick, Jacob Murphy and Sean Longstaff, to replace Isaac Hayden, Joseph Willock and Miguel Almiron.
The referee booked Paul Dummett for Newcastle.
