Brighton 1-2 Aston Villa: Premier League – as it happened

Villa survived the concession of a first-minute goal to record their second win in Unai Emery’s second league game

Brighton, meanwhile, will want their wide players to pin the Villa full-backs back, and more generally this looks like a contest between a possession team and a power team. The hosts will seek to keep the ball and probe, while the visitors will be relying on turnovers to create the majority of their opportunities.

I felt this before watching Villa in midweek, but looking at their team tonight, my fear for them is that they’ve not got enough out wide to feed Ings. That’s one of various reasons I’m surprised there’s no Bailey – Cash and Digne will need to cover a lot of ground – but, on the other hand, it should be be pretty difficult to penetrate them centrally.

Danny Ings double completes comeback in Aston Villa’s win at Brighton

For all the “will he, won’t he” surrounding England’s World Cup forwards, Danny Ings’s name was not even mentioned in passing. With faltering form meaning he has fallen well below the international radar, Holte End heroism must now be the aim. Afternoons such as this, when Ings’s double either side of half-time led to a come-from-behind victory, will certainly help.

But for an illness that ruled out Ollie Watkins, Ings would have begun on the bench. Instead, his contribution meant Villa’s travelling supporters could sing “Yippee-i-a” merrily, having seen Alexis Mac Allister’s early opener overturned. “Today we were talking about the best position for Ings,” said Unai Emery of the man yet to live up to his £25m price tag. “He needs to be between the centre-backs, with players to assist him. The others understood that, and it was a very good match for him. His goals were very important.”

Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend

Nathan Jones takes his Saints to Anfield, a template for Graham Potter on Tyneside and Rice v Maddison

Jack Grealish had Pep Guardiola positively purring after an effervescent and relentless performance of attacking play in Wednesday’s 2-0 Carabao Cup win over Chelsea. For this observer it was by far the 27-year-old’s finest outing in Manchester City colours as he menaced Graham Potter’s visitors at will, both from his wide left zone and through more central areas. Afterwards, Guardiola said: “I want Jack to have the responsibility, to play with Kevin [De Bruyne] with Phil [Foden]. I want Jack to get the ball to attack the back line. We talk to him – that the first intention is to score a goal. And today the body language is that the first intention is to score a goal and after to pass. He was exceptional again, Jack is playing really good.” The winger seemed, at last, to remember how brilliant he can be, how his blend of dribbling, pace, trickery, power and athleticism can take him past most opponents and give City – and England at the World Cup – a different and breathtaking dimension. Brentford should beware. Jamie Jackson

Brighton seal stylish Carabao Cup win to end Arsenal’s winning run at home

There will be few sleepless nights at Arsenal over this result and, as their fans were keen to point out, first place in the Premier League is a bigger attraction than Carabao Cup progress. But Mikel Arteta will still be frustrated by defeat to an alert, bold Brighton team who responded superbly to going behind and have a bright future if a young side’s performance is any measure.

Kaoru Mitoma completed the turnaround after Danny Welbeck’s penalty had cancelled out an Eddie Nketiah finish, and Tariq Lamptey added some gloss. It meant Arsenal’s 12-match winning run at the Emirates, Brighton coincidentally the previous opponents to win here, came to an end.

Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action

Saka’s class is too much for Chelsea, Leicester put Lampard’s Toffees to shame and Leeds unearth a future star

Officially, Bukayo Saka is the 33rd most fouled player in the Premier League. Unofficially, Arsenal fans will tell you that their man is the victim of some sinister conspiracy between opposition left-backs and referees to get him hacked out of the game. So, a valid concern or the usual tribal tinfoil nonsense? It’s actually more complex than it looks. What sets Saka apart is his unique close dribbling style, the ball almost wedged between his feet as he runs. So when he buys the contact – because all wingers buy contact – the tackle often takes ball and man together, making it hard to see which impact came first. Simply put, referees need to do better here. But it also needs a recognition from Arsenal fans that Saka isn’t being deliberately victimised or singled out: he’s just really, unusually good.

Brighton FC

Brighton & Hove Albion was established and founded in 1901 and the club nickname is The Seagulls.

The Brighton & Hove Albion football club is based on the south coast of England, which is known for its sun, beaches, and seagulls. In their long history, the club has had many ups and downs. The club has accomplished a lot with a small budget and big expectations. With so much history and culture, it is one of the oldest football clubs in the United Kingdom. The team hasn’t had much success at the highest level of football, either in local or European competitions, but the Seagulls still have a large fan base throughout the world.

A Brief History of Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club

Brighton and Hove were once two separate towns that have now merged to become a single city. It is situated on England’s south coast, in the county of Sussex. In 1897, Edgar Everest, former official of Sussex Football Association, founded Brighton United FC. The club only lasted three years before shutting down in 1900. Another football team called Brighton and Hove Rangers was founded in 1900, but it barely lasted a year.

In 1901, John Jackson, the former manager of Brighton United FC, expressed some personal interest in building a new successful club in the town. On June 24, 1901, John and a group of British businessmen created a new football club named Brighton & Hove United. Due to opposition from Hove FC, the club’s name was changed from Brighton & Hove United to Brighton & Hove Albion before the start of the regular season.

A Great Video of some of Brighton Football Club Performances in 2021 – 2022

The Seagulls and Albion are two nicknames for Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club. Initially, the team competed in the Southern League’s Second Division, and used the County Cricket Ground, Hove as their home ground. The Seagulls and Fulham won the Southern League Second Division in 1903, earning promotion to the Southern League First Division.

Southern League First Division Title

In 1908, the club hired Jack Robson as their new manager, who restructured the club and made significant changes in the squad. In the 1908-09 season, the club couldn’t display a significant performance in the league and hardly avoided relegation by finishing at 18 place in the table. Robson realized that he needed to hire quality players to progress in the league.

The club made a few notable signings at the end of the league season. After spending seven year in the First Division of the Southern League, Brighton won their first Southern League title in 1910. The club performed outstandingly throughout the league, and won 23 matches during the league. The Seagulls defeated their rival Swindon Town on 23rd April to secure their first league title.

First FA Charity Shield Title

After winning the Southern League in 1910, Brighton qualified for the FA Charity Shield (now known as FA Community Shield) match. The Seagulls played the FA Charity Shield match against 1909–10 Football League winner Aston Villa on 5 September 1910. The match was played at Stamford Bridge, London. Brighton defeated Aston Villa by 1:0 goals.

In the 72nd minute of the game, Brighton striker Charlie Webb scored the game’s only goal. It was the first and only occasion a Southern League champion won a national honour. The FA Charity Shield title in 1910 is the only national honour of the Seagulls to date.

Promotion to the Football League for Brighton FC

The Football League Third Division was formed in 1920 as part of the Football League’s expansion south of Birmingham. Most of the clubs for Third Division were drawn from the Southern Football League First Division. Brighton FC was also voted to the Football League’s Third Division. Brighton stayed in the Third Division (South) for the next 38 years.

Brighton earned a reputation as a giant-killer in the league, defeating First Division sides Everton, Chelsea, Sheffield United, Portsmouth, and Leicester City in front of an enormous crowd. In the 1957-58 season, the Seagulls won the Football League Third Division and were promoted to the Second Division. Brighton was the only professional football team from Sussex in the Football League from 1920 to 2011.

Brighton FC Home Grounds

Goldstone Ground – The club played at County Cricket Ground for only a year after its inception in 1901, before relocating to the Goldstone Ground in 1902. The Goldstone Ground served as the home of Brighton & Hove Albion for the next 95 years. The stadium was put up for sale in 1997 by the board of directors.

Withdean Stadium – Following the sale of the Goldstone Ground, the club shared Priestfield Stadium with Gillingham FC for a while. The team returned to Brighton in 1999 to play at Withdean Stadium, which served as the club’s home for the next 12 years, from 1999 to 2011.

Falmer Stadium – the stadium is located in Village Way, Brighton. It is also known as American Express Community Stadium, Amex Stadium due to sponsor reasons. Brighton FC shifted to Falmer Stadium in 2011 and it is the home of the Seagulls to date. The stadium has a seating capacity of 31,800.

Brighton & Hove Albion Club Owners

Brighton and Hove Albion was founded in 1901 by Edgar Everest, former official of Sussex Football Association. In 1972, a British businessman Mike Bamber became joint chairman of the club. He made few significant changes in the management of the club and brought Brian Clough and Alan Mullery to the club. Bamber helped the club to get promotion to the First Division in 1978.

In 1997, the club faced a turbulent period when a financial crisis brought the club near bankruptcy. The club was at the bank of losing its football status. An English businessman Dick Knight who was a lifelong fan of Brighton & Hove Albion, took control of the club in 1997. He not only paid the club’s debt but also restructured the club’s management.

The current chairman of the club, Tony Bloom took over the club by purchasing 75% of the club shares in 2009. Bloom provided £93 million funding for the new Falmer Stadium of the club. In 2011, Brighton had a home stadium of their own.  In the 2016-17 Championship season the club performed well and was promoted to the Premier League for the first time.

Club Net Worth

Tony Bloom, the current chairman of Brighton & Hove Albion, is widely regarded as one of the best club owners in English football. He has been a lifelong admirer of the club and has amassed millions of pounds in the gambling sector. As a chairman he invested his vast personal wealth into the club. According to the club sources, Bloom reportedly invested around £350 million in the club’s Amex stadium and playing side.

According to the club’s statistics, Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club’s net value in 2022 is $1.2 billion, with an annual revenue of $433 million and a gross profit of $213 million. Brighton & Hove Albion’s valuation has continued to rise due to their promotion and tenure in the Premier League.

Club’s Rivalry

Every Premier League club has a long-standing rivalry with its neighboring clubs. Brighton is located in East Sussex, and the club lacks a major professional team in the area, resulting in the lack of a well-established local derby. On the other hand, Brighton’s matches against south coast clubs such as Portsmouth and Southampton, are occasionally referred to as local derbies by the media, but there is no established rivalry between supporters and teams.

Crystal Place is the nearest club to Brighton in terms of distance, at a distance of roughly 64 km. Both clubs have an unofficial rivalry, which could be the result of a feud between Brighton manager Alan Mullery and Crystal Palace manager Terry Venables in 1976. Despite the fact that this rivalry is not formally recognized by the media, both clubs face each other with aggressive approach.
