Brighton & Hove Albion came from two goals down to beat 10-man City at Amex Stadium.
The champions went ahed after just two minutes as Ilkay Gundogan arrived at the back post to head in from Riyad Mahrez’s cross. But Man City were reduced to 10 men just eight minutes later when Joao Cancelo was shown the red card for bringing down Danny Welbeck thus denying him a goal-scoring opportunity.
However, Brighton quickly halved the deficit through Leandro Trossard’s sublime strike and Adam Webster headed past Ederson Moraes to restore parity. The winner came in the 76th minutes as Dan Burn’s shot was saved but he pounced on the rebound to score his first ever Brighton Goal.
Brighton have now ended City’s record run of 12 successive Premier League away wins and now climb to 15th place.
