Goals by Florin Andone and Neal Maupay help get Graham Potter's reign off to a winning start

Graham Potter can scarcely have wished for a better start to his reign as Brighton & Hove Albion head coach as his side ran out 3-0 winners at Watford

Brighton went ahead on 28 minutes when Abdoulaye Doucoure diverted Pascal Gross's cross past his own goalkeeper. 

Florin Andone converted Davy Propper's cross to double the visitors' advantage 20 minutes into the second half. 

Mat Ryan preserved his side's lead with a fine save from Watford's Craig Dawson before substitute Neal Maupay marked his Premier League debut with a goal to secure the Seagulls' victory with 13 minutes to play.
