Comments:

League position: 7th Brighton and Hove Albion had now scored eight goals in their last 14 home games in the Premier League. They were now without a win in their last seven Premier League games at the Amex Stadium (lost four). Three of the last four red cards shown in the Premier League by referee Kevin Friend had now been shown to Seagulls players (also Shane Duffy versus Crystal Palace and Anthony Knockaert versus AFC Bournemouth). Lewis Dunk 'scored' after 38 minutes but the goal was disallowed via a VAR decision due to offside.

Comments:

League position: 17th Moussa Djenepo's goal was his first in English club football and came 78 seconds after coming on as a second-half substitute. Southampton's only other clean sheet in their last 13 games in the Premier League came in their 1-0 win at Brighton and Hove Albion in March 2019. The Saints avoided losing their first three games of a league season for the first time since 2012-13.
