But Brighton took the lead after 28 minutes of play. It’s a fantastic team goal that puts them ahead, as Mwepu finished a great move by rolling the ball back to Trossard in the middle of the box.

The Belgian scored on the first attempt, placing the ball precisely in the top corner to give the visitors a 1-0 lead.

Martinelli thought he had leveled the game just before the halftime when he headed home a corner that Gabriel had nodded back across goal.

However, after a lengthy VAR review, the goal was disallowed because the Brazilian youngster was offside, and his team went into the halftime break down a goal.

Late in the game, the hosts hit the post twice in a matter of seconds before an Odegaard long-range attempt rebounded off Welbeck and over Sanchez and into the net.
