Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Swansea City  4 - 1

General Game Stats Chart


Minute   Description
90' +3 March races clear and pulls it back for Locadia, but he can't get his feet sorted out and Swansea win the ball back. That looks like it will be that.
90' +1 B. Kayal enters the game and replaces P. Groß.
Gross is replaced by Kayal for the final few minutes.
90' J. Locadia has scored a goal for Brighton & Hove Albion! Assist by D. Stephens.
Stephens is credited with the assist, but he seemed to be going for goal himself! It turned into an excellent pass, though, and Locadia couldn't miss from there.
GOAL! Locadia scores on his league debut! Izquierdo has been a menace down the left all afternoon, and he gets the better of his marker before fizing the ball across the face of goal. It looks to have run a little too far, and Stephens tries a speculative first-time effort that Locadia turns in from close range! This is turning into an emphatic win!
85' L. Dunk is unfortunate, scores an own goal!
Schelotto has a speculative effort from distance, but it's miles wide of the target. He sees the funny side though - the game is won.
GOAL! Swansea have one back! Stephens can't win it off Abraham, and the Chelsea loanee drives to the edge of the area and releases a rasping drive that nestles in the far corner past the diving Ryan via a deflection off the unfortunate Dunk! It's an excellent strike, but the hosts were perhaps guilt of a little complacency there.
82' J. Locadia enters the game and replaces G. Murray.
Murray gets a standing ovation as he comes off. He's been excellent for Brighton this season. New signing Locadia makes his league debut after scoring on his full debut against Coventry in the FA Cup. The club have plenty of options up front now.
79' S. March enters the game and replaces A. Knockaert.
Knockaert is substituted to warm applause from the home crowd after a good performance today. He's struggled at times to adapt to the Premier League after winning player of the season in the Championship, but he looked back to his best today. March replaces him.
77' Swansea look shell-shocked. Fabianski comes out to claim a Knockaert cross after Naughton took it down, but then the keeper throws possession straight back to a Brighton midifelder! They just can't keep the ball at the moment - nobody looks like they really want it.
73' A. Knockaert has scored a goal for Brighton & Hove Albion! Assist by P. Groß.
GOAL! Gross plays it through to Knockaert and Mawson just can't get a foot to it, before the Frenchman pokes it into the far corner to make it 3-0! That's surely game over for Swansea now! Fantastic goal from the Seagulls!
Gross' slid through-ball was excellent and just behind Mawson, who couldn't make the interception and Knockaert had all the time in the world to pick his spot.
72' Swansea waste a free-kick situation as Mawson gives away a silly foul as he tries to challenge for the ball. The visitors look deflated after going 2-0 down. That could be it for them in this game.
70' Murray's vigorous celebration saw him dive into the crowd, and considering he's already on a booking, he might count himself lucky not to be given his marching orders straight after scoring a la Diego Costa!
