Highlights: Brighton 0-2 Southampton

By on 24th August 2019

Southampton picked up their first three points of the season with a 2-0 win away to 10-man Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Seagulls were reduced to 10 men after only half an hour when Romanian striker Florin Andone produced a nasty challenge on young Yan Valery.

Brighton thought they’d taken the lead before half-time when Lewis Dunk produced a bullet header from a corner. However, VAR ruled out the goal as Florent Hadergjonaj was in an offside position knocking down Angus Gunn.

Southampton finally made the extra man count when Moussa Djenepo fired home from 25 yards on a counter-attack.

Jurgen Locadia spurned a golden opportunity to equalise when he missed a sitter from four yards by striking the outside of the post.

The Saints wrapped up the three points in the first minute of stoppage time when Nathan Redmond tapped home from the goalline following an excellent assist from Sofiane Boufal.
