Comments:

League position: 14th This was Brighton and Hove Albion’s 50th home game in the Premier League (won 17, lost 15). Albion had now dropped 14 points from losing positions so far in this Premier League season; only West Ham United had dropped more (17). The Seagulls had now won one of their last eight games in the Premier League (lost three).

Comments:

League position: 18th Aston Villa remained as the only team that had yet to keep a clean sheet in an away game so far in this Premier League season. Villa had now already taken more points from their away games so far in this Premier League season (eight) than they did in their preceding season in the division in 2015-16 (six). Jack Grealish had now scored more goals against Brighton and Hove Albion in all competitions than he has against any other club in his senior career (four). Ahmed Elmohamady was originally named amongst the substitutes before suffering an injury in the pre-match warm-up. Neil Taylor took his place on the bench.
