The lowdown: The Seagulls picked up their first ever win at Villa Park, deservedly edging a thriller which also had a dramatic ending.
Aston Villa, 1 Albion 2
Villa scorer: Konza 47
Albion scorers: Welbeck 12, March 56
Danny Welbeck netted his first goal for the club when he latched on to Adam Lallana’s delightful ball forward before cleverly lifting the ball over Emi Martinez in the Villa goal.
Defender Ezri Konza grabbed an equaliser shortly after the restart, sliding in from close range, before Solly March netted a superb goal when he curled home with his right foot from 18 yards.

There was injury-time drama when March challenged Trezeguet inside the box, and referee Michael Oliver pointed to the spot. However, he reversed his decision having consulted the touchline VAR monitor.
Graham Potter said, “We've had a few penalties against us this season so I'm not sure what is and what isn't a penalty these days. I know Solly touched the ball so we're just happy it went our way this time."
Solly March said, “My right foot is not the strongest, I just wanted to hit it well. It was a massive win. We'd not been in the best of form but had been playing well. We deserved the three points."
