  • Mon, 15 Jan 2018 07:52:47 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Brighton & Hove Albion | The Guardian

    Arsenal have hit an all-time low under Arsène Wenger, Chelsea could go for Andy Carroll and Sam Allardyce needs a result

    Chelsea have endured three successive goalless draws for the first time and it is inconceivable the scouting department is not exploring forward options. Something has clearly put them off the pursuit of Alexis Sánchez, whom they courted in the summer. Perhaps they believe he is set upon a reunion with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. Maybe they feel they cannot compete with the financial package Manchester United could offer. Possibly they deem the costs excessive. Yet, if that avenue is blocked, and with Crystal Palace unlikely to entertain offers for Christian Benteke, there remains the possibility Chelsea will explore Andy Carroll’s availability. Antonio Conte had hoped to secure a targetman over the summer and is apparently an admirer of Carroll, for all the 29-year-old’s patchy injury record. Such a move would once have seemed outlandish. Yet times may have changed. Dominic Fifield

  • Sun, 14 Jan 2018 13:11:29 +0000: FA says it will investigate alleged remark by Jay Rodriguez to Gaëtan Bong - Brighton & Hove Albion | The Guardian

    • Striker Rodriguez pinched nose after clashing with Brighton defender

    The Football Association has confirmed it will open an investigation into an accusation that the West Brom forward Jay Rodriguez made a racist remark to the Brighton defender Gaëtan Bong.

    The governing body said Martin Atkinson, the referee, included in his report a mention of an alleged incident after he was made aware of it during Saturday’s match at The Hawthorns. In a statement, the FA said it would “begin making inquiries into the matter”.

  • Sat, 13 Jan 2018 17:16:22 +0000: Jonny Evans sets West Brom on path to victory to end 20-game winless run - Brighton & Hove Albion | The Guardian

    West Brom’s long wait for a Premier League win finally ended as Brighton were beaten 2-0 at The Hawthorns. Jonny Evans’s early header set Albion on their way to halting a 20-game run stretching back to August, with fellow defender Craig Dawson heading in a second goal at the start of the second half.

    The only downside for the home side was Jay Rodriguez being reported to the Football Association for a remark allegedly made to Brighton defender Gaëtan Bong. Yet the result itself was a weight off Alan Pardew’s shoulders as it gave him that elusive first league victory since he took over as manager nine matches ago at the start of December.

  • Fri, 12 Jan 2018 18:25:28 +0000: West Bromwich Albion v Brighton & Hove Albion: match preview - Brighton & Hove Albion | The Guardian

    West Bromwich Albion finally ended their marathon run without a win in all competitions last time out but that was against League Two’s Exeter. Alan Pardew has an ideal chance to build on that against Brighton and to spark a revival as Chris Hughton’s side have scored just five goals on the road this season. Hughton will likely want to stifle West Brom as a result to maintain his side’s course for safety. Graham Searles

  • Tue, 09 Jan 2018 00:16:59 +0000: Roy Hodgson changes tune on Brighton winner after ‘spiteful’ outburst at referee - Brighton & Hove Albion | The Guardian
    Despite initial suspicions Crystal Palace manager eventually accepts verdict of new video review system that striker’s goal did not involve any handball

    Roy Hodgson admitted he had directed “spiteful” words at the referee, Andre Marriner, after watching the Brighton striker Glenn Murray put his Crystal Palace team out of the FA Cup with a potentially controversial late winner for 2-1. But Hodgson changed his tune entirely after being assured that Murray had not used his hand to ease the ball over the line. The assurances came via the Video Assistant Referee, which had been used for the first time in an English club match.
