 The Singaporean man sent abuse to the Brighton striker after he scored the winner against the Gunners last June

A Singaporean man has pleaded guilty to sending death threats to Brighton forward Neal Maupay.

Derek Ng De Ren faces a fine of up to £10,000 or a two-year prison sentence after he sent the abuse to Maupay through Instagram following the Premier League game between Arsenal and Brighton in June 2020.

Brighton reported the messages to the Premier League through its online abuse reporting system, with the league then working with the club and authorities in Singapore to locate and prosecute the man.
