Brighton 2-0 Watford: Shane Duffy and Neal Maupay fire as Seagulls Soar to Second


Brighton moved to second in the Premier League after making it back-to-back wins with a 2-0 victory over Watford.

Brighton struggled offensively last season with their attacking stats a concern to Graham Potter but there are more positive signs this season with four goals in their two opening games. Both of their strikes in this impressive win came in the opening 45 minutes with Shane Duffy netting his first goal (10) for the club since November 2019 and Neal Maupay doubling the lead (41).

Maupay limped off with a shoulder problem at the break but Brighton’s first-half efforts were enough as Watford improved but couldn’t find the required quality in the final third to set up a comeback.

The win means Brighton have won their opening two games of a top-flight season for the first time in their history as they sit second in the Premier League, level on points with Liverpool.
