Brighton Surge Towards Safety with Leeds Win

 

Brighton eased any fears of relegation with a convincing 2-0 win over Leeds that took them 10 points clear of Fulham in the drop zone.

With only two wins from their past 20 home Premier League matches, Brighton needed a fast start to settle the nerves and got it when Welbeck was fouled inside the area by Ezgjan Alioski. The penalty was coolly converted by Gross.

Leeds, without Kalvin Phillips to injury, lacked the attacking spark to seriously trouble the hosts and Leandro Trossard and Neal Maupay both wasted huge opportunities to take the game away from Marcelo Bielsa’s men.

Brighton’s failure to convert those chances didn’t cost them though as Welbeck popped up with the second goal, skilfully making a chance for himself before firing into the bottom corner.
