Half chance

Grealish fires into the direction of Morgan Sanson, but it takes a deflection before it reaches the new recruit so he can't direct it towards goal.
22:366 months ago

Another sub approaches

Danny Welbeck is being prepared. The English forward has a good record against Villa, scoring the last three times he has played them.
22:346 months ago


Trossard goes into the book for hacking down Trezeguet.
22:336 months ago

Barkley has been replaced by Sanson. No water bottles were kicked this time.

20 minutes remain

22:276 months ago

Luiz has gone into the book for a succession of fouls. The midfielder is complaining, but the referee isn't listening.
22:246 months ago

Villa slowly improving

The visitors are finally starting to show signs of life, with Grealish especially finally finding some space down Brighton's wings.
22:226 months ago


Bertrand Traore is replaced by Trezeguet
22:216 months ago

The Cash-Elmohamady substitution is confirmed. Steven Alzate is replaced by Adam Lallana for the hosts.
22:176 months ago


Leandro Trossard has an effort go into the side netting. Brighton continue to be on top with Villa offering little goig forward.

Matty Cash is receiving treatment and Ahmed Elmohamady is being prepared to come on.

22:146 months ago

Poor stuff from Grealish

The Villa skipper is having an unusually poor game tonight. His first touch has been heavy and dropped his defenders in trouble on a few occasions, while he has been marshalled excellently by Veltman in the other direction
22:106 months ago


Dan Burn completely misdirects a back pass to his 'keeper and Sanchez has to scramble across goal to prevent an own goal.

22:046 months ago

22:026 months ago


Can Brighton make their dominance count in the second half?
21:476 months ago

HALF TIME: Brighton 0-0 Aston Villa

Brighton are in control at the break. They have pressed aggressively and dealt with what little attacking threat Villa have had resolutely. 
21:466 months ago

One minute added

Dan Burn fires a good header from a corner, but Martinez makes yet another great save to deny the defender.
21:386 months ago


Leandro Trossard fires a wicked shot from the edge of the box, forcing Martinez into an acrobatic save. Brighton are getting closer.
21:366 months ago


Ezri Konsa softly gives the ball away to Trossard and the ball eventually finds its way to Neal Maupay. He looks to fizz a ball across goal, but Tyrone Mings blocks well.
21:336 months ago

Brighton in control

Brighton's aggressive pressing has Villa pegged back into their own half, with their only option to break being lumping the ball forward to Watkins or Grealish. The hosts are in total control.
21:286 months ago

Villa out of character

Villa have spent much of the first half so far on the back foot, with an uncharacteristic shaky defensive performance with very loose passing. Concern for Dean Smith.
21:246 months ago

Not bad

Alexis MacAllister takes the free kick, but fires just over his compatriot's bar.
21:236 months ago


Grealish gives the ball away softly to Trossard, who is brought down around the edge of the Villa box. Decent chance for Brighton.
21:216 months ago

Grealish is booked for pulling back Joel Veltman.
21:206 months ago

First booking

Steven Alzate is booked for a late foul on Jack Grealish.
21:196 months ago

Villa growing in confidence

Ross Barkley cuts his pass back to Douglas Luiz, who's shot is blocked and goes out for a corner.
21:186 months ago

Concern for Villa

Ollie Watkins has stayed down following a clash with Lewis Dunk. He is back up on his feet, but he surely won't be able to take many more knocks
21:156 months ago

Poor retention

Some typically silky footwork from Grealish lays it off to John McGinn, but the Scotsman overhit his return pass and its out for a goal kick.
21:136 months ago


Joel Veltman fires a low effort towards Martinez's near post, but the Argentine collects easily. Brighton looking in control.
21:116 months ago


A good cross is fired in towards Emi Martinez's back post by Joel Veltman, but Alexis MacAllister heads just over. Let off for Villa.
21:086 months ago

Concern for both sides

Ollie Watkins and Yves Bissouma looked in pain after a collision, but the pair are good to carry on.
21:046 months ago


Lewis Dunk plays a soft defensive header back to Rob Sanchez. Bertrand Traore has a stab at it, but the Brighton 'stopper collects.
21:036 months ago

Opening two minutes

Brighton looking good in the opening stages. They tried to force a chance by passing it around the edge of Villa's box, but the defence stood firm.
21:006 months ago


The game is underway at the AMEX!
