Brighton v West Brom

Brighton & Hove Albion clinched a memorable maiden Premier League victory courtesy of a brace from Pascal Gross to end West Bromwich Albion’s unbeaten start to the season.

The German scored Brighton’s first top-flight goal since 1983, latching on to Solly March’s cross at the far post in the last action of the first half.

Gross sparked more jubilant scenes when his 25-yard effort flew past Ben Foster on 48 minutes.

The 26-year-old summer signing soon turned provider to enable Tomer Hemed to head in a third.

A close-range James Morrison strike could not spark a comeback from Tony Pulis’s side, who drop to eighth. 

Brighton climb to 13th with four points from as many matches.
