Brighton 3-2 Man City: Percy Tau’s Brighton stun Champions Manchester City

Leandro Trossard, Adam Webster and Dan Burn each scored in the second half for Brighton to complete an unlikely turnaround against champions Manchester City

Brighton staged a remarkable second-half comeback to stun 10-man Manchester City with an astonishing 3-2 Premier League victory on a raucous evening at the Amex Stadium.

Almost jubilant 8,000 fans were in attendance on the south coast to see Dan Burn sweep home a 76th-minute winner against Pep Guardiola’s shocked champions.

An early header from Ilkay Gundogan and a superb individual effort from Phil Foden just after the restart put City in control before Albion came roaring back courtesy of Leandro Trossard and Adam Webster.

City, who succumbed to a first top-flight away defeat in 13 outings, were forced to play for 80 minutes a man down after Joao Cancelo was dismissed for denying Danny Welbeck a goal-scoring opportunity.

A sensational success for Graham Potter’s hosts was a first in eight Premier League attempts against the Champions League finalists.
