Premier League: Brighton 3-1 Bournemouth

By Score More Brighton's manager, Roberto De Zerbi, masterminded a remarkable comeback against Bournemouth, offering a perfect rebound from their Europa League disappointment.

Premier League: Manchester United 1-3 Brighton: Historic day for Seagulls after win at Old Trafford

By Score More Manchester United had a forgettable start to this Saturday afternoon, continuing their disappointing season by losing to Brighton 1-3 at home, making it three defeats and only one victory in four games.

The game could have taken a different turn early on when Alexander Isak missed two uncharacteristic opportunities when through on goal. Unfortunately, Newcastle's traveling supporters had little to cheer about afterward. Newcastle's troubles began when Nick Pope mishandled a straightforward situation towards the right touchline, failing to clear effectively and putting pressure on the defense. Kieran Trippier and Sandro Tonali also failed to cover themselves in glory, leading to Pope ...
