Match Previews

Albion welcome Swansea City to the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Brighton & Hove Albion return to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon, when they come up against Swansea City at the Amex Stadium, kick-off 3pm.

The Seagulls will look to extend their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions, and also secure a second league victory over the Swans this season, after November’s 1-0 win at the Liberty Stadium.

Chris Hughton’s side currently sit one point and two places ahead of Carlos Carvalhal’s rejuvenated team, who have gone ten games without defeat to lift themselves out of the relegation zone.

Victory for either side will be another huge step in the direction of Premier League safety - with both clubs also still in the Emirates FA Cup, as the season heads toward its conclusion.


Steve Sidwell (ankle and back) and Jiri Skalak (ankle) remain the only two absences through injury, while Tim Krul is available for selection after picking up a neck injury in last week's Emirates FA Cup victory over Coventry City.

Swansea are expected to welcome back Alfie Mawson on Saturday, after the defender recovered from a knee injury that kept him out of last weekend’s FA Cup tie against Sheffield Wednesday.

Leon Britton is also in line to return for Carvalhal’s side, with the midfielder not playing since October due to a pelvis injury. Renato Sanches (hamstring) and Leroy Fer (achilles) remain sidelined for the Swans.


Glenn Murray’s winning goal off his thigh moved Albion into eighth position in the Premier League at the beginning of November, after a commanding display against Swansea in Wales.

It was also Albion’s second successive away victory, following their 3-0 win against West Ham United at the London Stadium - but the hosts came agonisingly close to spoiling the party in the closing stages.

Luciano Narsingh surged into Albion’s penalty area with little time remaining on the clock, but the substitute’s effort crashed back off the crossbar, which meant Hughton’s team held on for three points.


ALBION: The Seagulls have taken five points from their previous three Premier League meetings - a run which started against Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium, where Hughton’s men drew 1-1.

An impressive 3-1 victory followed against West Ham at the Amex, with goals from Glenn Murray, Jose Izquierdo and Pascal Gross sealing all three points against the Hammers.

Mathew Ryan produced a dramatic 90th-minute penalty save to secure a share of the spoils after Izquierdo’s wonderful team goal was cancelled out by Xherdan Shaqiri at Stoke City.

Albion reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup after beating Coventry 3-1 at the Amex last weekend - in a contest that saw goals from club-record signing Jurgen Locadia and Leonardo Ulloa.

SWANSEA CITY: The Swans are ten matches unbeaten and have turned their season around after spending the majority of the campaign deep inside the Premier League relegation zone.

The run began in the FA Cup against Wolverhampton Wanderers - but Carvalhal’s impact was most noticeable after the Welsh club sealed surprise back-to-back victories over Liverpool and Arsenal.

A 1-1 draw against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium came at the start of February, before an emphatic 8-1 success against Notts County to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Ki Sung-yueng then scored the winner in a 1-0 victory over Burnley at the Liberty Stadium, which was followed up by Swansea’s most recent result, a goalless draw against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.


Locadia 15
Goldson 34
Ulloa 61

Clarke-Harris 77

ALBION: Krul (Maenpaa 46); Bruno, Goldson, Huenemeier, Suttner; Knockaert, Stephens (Propper 46), Kayal, March; Locadia (Baldock 77), Ulloa.

Subs not used: Dunk, Rosenior, Izquierdo, Hemed.




SWANSEA CITY: Nordfeldt; Naughton, van der Hoorn, Bartley; Roberts, Ki, Carroll, Olsson (Clucas 79); Routledge; Abraham (Ayew 67), Narsingh (Dyer 64).

Subs not used: Mulder, Naughton, Fernandez, James.


The striker has featured in every league match for the Swans this season, and has played a big part in their recent turnaround in form - notching four goals in his previous nine Premier League matches.

The Ghanian international works extremely hard in both directions for Carvalhal’s team, showing pace on the ball and also the strength to hold off markers and bring his team-mates into play.

The 26-year-old scored crucial goals in 1-1 draws against Crystal Palace and Newcastle United, while also triggering Swansea’s late comeback against Watford at the Liberty Stadium in December.

Ayew continues to provide a wide threat for the Welsh club, but can also drift inside to link-up with Tammy Abraham in and around the penalty area.

Match Reports


24 February 2018

Glenn Murray celebrates scoring from the penalty spot.
  • Glenn Murray bags a brace
  • Anthony Knockaert nets third of the season
  • Jurgen Locadia registers first Premier League goal
  • Seagulls record highest ever top-flight victory at the Amex Stadium

Brighton & Hove Albion ran out 4-1 winners against Swansea City in Saturday’s Premier League game at the Amex Stadium. 

A brace from Glenn Murray, who put Albion in front with a first-half penalty before adding a second after the break, was added to by goals from Anthony Knockaert and Jurgen Locadia as Albion recorded a record-breaking top-flight win. 

Man-of-the-match Murray now has 10 goals in the top-flight campaign and 12 overall and his double helped seal back-to-back home victories in the Premier League for the second time this season. 

Chris Hughton made one change to the side that drew 1-1 away to Stoke City in the Seagulls’ previous Premier League encounter with Anthony Knockaert replacng Solly March on the right-hand side.

For the visitors, Carlos Carvahal named the same side that defeated Burnley 1-0 at the Liberty Stadium a fortnight ago.

The first chance of the game fell to the hosts after seven minutes when a good counter attack led by Knockaert saw the Frenchman find Jose Izquierdo on the edge of the area.

Izquierdo returned the ball to Knockaert, who got to the line and fired across goal, finding Pascal Gross who saw his shot blocked. 

The Seagulls went close again from the resulting corner, as Gross’s clever ball to the back-post was only half-cleared to Izquierdo on the edge of the area, but the Colombian fired over the bar. 

Albion continued to look dangerous on the counter attack and Knockaert combined with Ezequiel Schelotto to begin another move forard which ended in Davy Propper shooting wide after 14 minutes. 

Hughton’s men would be rewarded for their positive after 18 minutes when Murray notched his ninth goal of the Premier League campaign.

The forward got into the area and was brought down by Mike van der Hoorn. Referee Mike Dean pointed to the spot and Murray stepped up to slot his spot-kick down the middle of the goal and past Lukasz Fabianski to give the Seagulls the advantage.

Maty Ryan had to be alert to claim a deflected van der Hoorn effort just before the half-hour mark when the Dutchman’s shot spun off Shane Duffy and towards goal, before Andre Ayew replaced Nathan Dyer for the visitors ten minutes before the interval.

Gross delivered another trademark set-piece two minutes before the break that Shane Duffy crashed against the bar with a powerful header and in a frantic end to the first period Jordan Ayew struck the foot of Ryan’s right-hand post.

Luciano Narsingh replaced van der Hoorn at the interval as Carvahal made a second switch for the visitors and Gross forced Fabianski into a routine stop three minutes after the restart with the first chance of the second half. 

Ki Sung-yueng forced Ryan into a superb stop soon after as the Australian dived full-strength to his right to keep out the midfielder’s drive from the edge of the box.

Albion had the ball in the net again on the hour when Murray converted Knockaert’s centre from the right-hand side – but the goal was ruled out as the forward strayed marginally offside as he put the ball in the net.

Murray was then inches away from turning Izquierdo’s cross into the back of the net after the Colombian broke free down the left after a neat exchange between the pair and Gross and produced a dangerous cross.

The trio combined then combined again superbly to allow Murray to swivel and fire just wide, before Tammy Abraham entered the action with 25 minutes left to play as Tom Carroll made way for Swansea.

Murray gave the Seagulls a two-goal advantage with 20 minutes left to play. 

The trio of Izquierdo, Gross and the striker linked up yet again and this time the former laid the ball on a plate for Murray to calmly slot the ball low into the net.

Two would soon become three when Knockaert got himself on the scoresheet for the third time this season. Gross found space between Swansea’s defensive lines and fed the winger, who sped into the area and stylishly poked the ball past Fabianski with his left foot.

Solly March replaced the goalscorer moments later and Murray was given a standing ovation when Locadia took to the field for his Premier League debut inside the final 10 minutes. 

Abraham got Swansea on the scoresheet late on when his effort deflected off the leg of Lewis Dunk to make it 3-1, but Albion responded by restoring their three-goal cushion in the last minute. 

Izquierdo raced away down the left again and cut the ball all the way across the area for Dale Stephens and his square ball was tapped home by Locadia from a few yards out.

Beram Kayal replaced Gross in the closing stages before the home fans were able to acclaim an outstanding display by their side at the final whistle.
