Brighton & Hove Albion 4 Portsmouth 0

Albion saw off League 1 Pompey with ease at the Amex and progress through to the third round of the Carabao League cup.

Alexis Mac Allister scored his first Albion goal just before the interval with a perfectly placed header to put Albion in front.

Then the man who only ever appears to score – the spectacular Alireza Jahanbakhsh – lashed a shot high into the roof of the net to double Albion’s lead on 54 minutes.

It really was just like watching Brazil as Bernardo finally got on the Albion scoresheet with another well-placed header four minutes later.

And the young Swedish international Viktor Gyokeres wrapped things up with a fourth on 71 minutes.

The Seagulls now go to Preston in the third round next week, with the winners facing Manchester United the week after – or possibly Luton Town.

The Seagulls travel to Newcastle in the Premier League on Sunday (20 September).
