Brighton & Hove Albion registered their biggest-ever Premier League win by thumping Wolverhampton Wanderers 6-0 at the Amex Stadium on Saturday. The Seagulls were on fire from the start, with Deniz Undav scoring the opening goal in the sixth minute after a clever backheel from Danny Welbeck. Pascal Gross doubled their lead seven minutes later with a side-footed finish from Julio Enciso’s cross.
Gross scored his second in the 26th minute, volleying home another assist from Enciso. Welbeck scored Brighton’s fourth just before half-time with a header, and added his second early in the second half with a well-placed shot. Deniz Undav completed the scoring with a chip over Wolves’ goalkeeper in the 66th minute.
The result leaves Brighton in eighth place in the Premier League table, just a point behind Liverpool in seventh and two points behind Tottenham in fifth. The Seagulls are now in a strong position to secure a place in Europe next season. For Wolves, the defeat was their heaviest of the season and leaves them 13th in the table, eight points clear of the relegation zone.
Brighton’s attacking and defensive strength
Brighton’s attacking display was a delight to watch, with the players showing excellent teamwork and creativity. The movement and passing in the final third were exceptional, with Enciso providing three assists and Undav and Gross each scoring twice. The Seagulls were also solid defensively, limiting Wolves to just two shots on target throughout the game.
The win will be a huge boost for Brighton, who have been in good form recently, having won four of their last six games in all competitions. Manager Roberto de Zerbi will be pleased with the way his team is playing and will be looking to continue their winning run in the remaining games of the season.
