League position: 16th This was Brighton and Hove Albion’s first win in the Premier League since their victory at Liverpool on 3 February 2021; longer than any other team currently in the division. The Seagulls avoided losing four consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since April 2019. Lewis Dunk became the fourth player to score ten or more goals for Albion in the Premier League.
