Watford 0 Brighton & Hove Albion 3
Albion are third in the Premier League and have effectively attained their highest ever position in English football albeit after just one match.
An Adboulaye Doucoure own goal, followed by a Florin Andone second, just minutes after coming on as substitute, and a Neal Maupay debut goal, saw the Seagulls avenge last season’s opening day defeat with aplomb.
The Albion looked competitive, comfortable and capable in all areas and were worthy of their win, which equals their record away win at this level.
Matty Ryan was quick to react to efforts from Gerrard Deulofou and Will Hughes
Albion look strong at the back with Dan Burn continuing at full back as he did in pre season.
New Captain Lewis Dunk rounded off a fine performance as he slid the ball through to Maupay, who side stepped Ben Foster to fire home. Prior to this it was Martin Montoya who supplied the cross for Andone to beat Foster at his near post.
Albion face West Ham at the Amex next Saturday 17th August and astonishingly a win could see them top the Premier League and become one of the elite band of clubs who have occupied both 1st and 92nd positions in English football.
