  • Sat, 24 Aug 2019 16:27:34 +0000: Moussa Djenepo hits cracker as Southampton beat 10-man Brighton - Brighton & Hove Albion | The Guardian

    Moussa Djenepo’s stunning first Premier League goal set Southampton on course for their first points of the season as they won 2-0 at 10-man Brighton. Djenepo, a substitute and £14m summer signing from Standard Liège, had been on the pitch for 78 seconds when he cut in from the left to bury the ball into the top-right corner from the edge of the box.

    Nathan Redmond tapped home a cross from Sofiane Boufal to seal the points in injury-time. Albion played with 10 men for an hour after Florin Andone was sent off for a reckless tackle on Yan Valery, while Lewis Dunk had a first-half header ruled out by VAR.

  • Fri, 23 Aug 2019 15:46:35 +0000: Brighton v Southampton: match preview - Brighton & Hove Albion | The Guardian

    Southampton lost their opening two matches but tend to be tricky opposition for Brighton and will surely fancy their chances after Graham Potter’s attacking revolution stalled against West Ham. Kevin Danso could also debut to refresh Ralph Hassenhüttl’s defence – a unit that kept Liverpool in check for long periods last time out. The workout given to the backline should have them prepared to stifle Potter’s plans for keeping the good times rolling at the Amex. Graham Searles

  • Mon, 19 Aug 2019 08:00:36 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Brighton & Hove Albion | The Guardian

    Ljungberg and Trossard make instant impact, Wilson has Liverpool quality and Rodgers leaves ‘young Frank’ on back foot

    The inclusion of Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson against Burnley a week after they became the first pair of teenagers to start a Premier League game for Arsenal since Paolo Vernazza and Matthew Upson in 1998, was more evidence of Unai Emery beginning to trust his young players. That may have something to do with the promotion of the former under-23s coach Freddie Ljungberg to become the Spaniard’s assistant, with Willock particularly impressive alongside Matteo Guendouzi in midfield. The 19-year-old played in a more advanced role in the opening day win over Newcastle and shows how Emery is tapping into the former Sweden midfielder’s knowledge bank since he stepped up in the summer. “[Ljungberg] worked last year with the under-23s and we were very close, speaking about the young players,” he said. “It’s perfect and he helps me a lot. He has an advantage with the young players because he knows them very well.” Ed Aarons

  • Sat, 17 Aug 2019 17:44:00 +0000: Brighton’s Leandro Trossard denied by VAR then pegs back West Ham - Brighton & Hove Albion | The Guardian

    Graham Potter backed Leandro Trossard to get even better after the winger’s sparkling Brighton debut. Trossard, the £18m signing from Genk, secured a draw soon after they fell behind to Javier Hernández’s strike.

    The 24-year-old had a goal ruled out by VAR and missed an easy chance but got off the mark with a fine shot from the edge of the box.

    Plymouth, Swindon and Exeter City have all won two games each and are the only teams in the fourth tier with perfect records in these early stages of the season. Plymouth travel to Newport County, while Swindon and Exeter go toe to toe at St James Park, where something will have to give.
