Wonder goals from Leandro Trossard and Neal Maupay secure Brighton’s first win in 12 against Brentford

| News Today | Local News

Superb goals from Leandro Trossard and former Brentford striker Neal Maupay helped Brighton secure a first Premier League win in 12 after a 2-0 win.

Albion’s top scorer Maupay – who cost the Bees £ 20million in August 2019 – launched an unstoppable effort in the upper right corner just before half-time to light up an Amex stadium below capacity.

Maupay came back to haunt his old club

Leandro Trossard set the Seagulls on course for their first top-level success in over three months with an instinctive volley in the 34th minute.

Brentford had the chance to save something in the second half but were denied by some superb saves from Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez, while Marc Cucurella brilliantly cleared a header from Ethan Pinnock on the line.

The Graham Potter hosts’ victory ended a fruitless streak that stretched back to a 2-1 victory over Leicester on September 19, lifting them to ninth place in the table.

Belgium international Trossard made the initial breakthrough, deftly guiding a skillful first time over Fernandez who advanced after Enock Mwepu’s perfectly weighted ball above the summit.

The Seagulls claimed their first win in 12 games on Boxing Day

Brentford was seeking back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time and soon had a mountain to climb thanks to a former hero.

Maupay – who has scored 41 goals in 95 games in two seasons in West London – recovered the ball from Jakub Moder before setting off an unstoppable run past Fernandez just inside the D.

The stunning finish was Maupay’s seventh strike of the season and the third in as many appearances after saving late points at West Ham and Southampton earlier this month.
