Brighton 2-2 Southampton

The referee has blown the whistle on a lively game between Brighton and Southampton with honours even after a 2-2 draw.

After two minutes, the hosts got off to a quick start as Welbeck tapped a Cucurella cross home.

After a lengthy delay for a severe injury to Livramento, the hosts’ lead was doubled as Salisu deflected a Trossard through-ball into the back of his net.

Ward-Prowse grabbed a goal back just before half-time with a superb free-kick before getting his side back on level terms with a brilliant drive after a Romeu backheel in the 54th minute, and that is how it remained.

Goals:

The hosts are in front!!! It’s a lightning-quick start for Brighton, who leads after just two minutes. Cucurella drills a low cross into the box, and Forster fumbles it. The ball sits up perfectly for Welbeck to tap into the empty net to make it 1-0.

It’s 2-0!!! It’s an own goal from Salisu, as he tried to cut out a Trossard through the ball. The centre-back attempts to intercept it, but the ball comes off his foot and goes into the far corner past Forster to double the home side’s advantage.

Ward-Prowse has done it again!!! He pulls a goal back for the visitors with yet another sublime free-kick as he curls his shot off the post and into the back of the net to make it 2-1.

What a goal!!! Romeu cleverly backheels the ball to Ward-Prowse just outside the area, and the midfielder adds his second of the game by rifling the ball first-time into the bottom left corner past Sanchez to make it 2-2.

So, what’s next?

The point for the hosts means that they move up a place to 11th, but they miss the chance to move into the top half.

They will travel to Wolves next as they look to get back in the winning column.

The draw for the Saints keeps them in 13th place, and they’ll host Crystal Palace next time out as they look for a solid finish to the season.
