FULL TIME: Brighton 0-0 Aston Villa

It was far from a classic, but both sides pick up a point with a goalless draw. Villa hung on for much of the game, with Martinez putting in a brilliant performance, but they ground out a point.
22:4719 days ago

22:3719 days ago

Sub confirmed

Neal Maupay is replaced by Danny Welbeck.
22:3719 days ago

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.
22:3619 days 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.
22:3419 days ago


Trossard goes into the book for hacking down Trezeguet.
22:3319 days ago

Sub confirmed

Barkley has been replaced by Sanson. No water bottles were kicked this time.
22:3219 days ago

20 minutes remain

Both sides have 20 minutes to break the deadlock. Brighton are still looking the likeliest. 
22:2719 days ago

Luiz booked

Luiz has gone into the book for a succession of fouls. The midfielder is complaining, but the referee isn't listening.
22:2419 days 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.
22:2219 days ago


Bertrand Traore is replaced by Trezeguet
22:2119 days ago


Emi Martinez makes another great save from a Joel Veltman effort. Villa are hanging on here.
22:1819 days ago

First subs

The Cash-Elmohamady substitution is confirmed. Steven Alzate is replaced by Adam Lallana for the hosts.
22:1719 days 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.

22:1419 days 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
22:1019 days ago


Dan Burn completely misdirects a back pass to his 'keeper and Sanchez has to scramble across goal to prevent an own goal.
22:0819 days ago

Much the same

Brighton have continued their dominance of possession, with Villa still mostly content to sit back.
22:0419 days ago


MacAllister has a strong effort from range, but Martinez makes the save.
22:0219 days ago


Can Brighton make their dominance count in the second half?
21:4719 days 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. 
21:4619 days ago

One minute added

There will be a single minute of added time in the first half
21:3919 days ago


Dan Burn fires a good header from a corner, but Martinez makes yet another great save to deny the defender.
21:3819 days ago


Leandro Trossard fires a wicked shot from the edge of the box, forcing Martinez into an acrobatic save. Brighton are getting closer.
21:3619 days 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.
21:3319 days 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.
21:2819 days 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.
21:2419 days ago

Not bad

Alexis MacAllister takes the free kick, but fires just over his compatriot's bar.
21:2319 days ago


Grealish gives the ball away softly to Trossard, who is brought down around the edge of the Villa box. Decent chance for Brighton.
21:2119 days ago

Second booking

Grealish is booked for pulling back Joel Veltman.
21:2019 days ago

First booking

Steven Alzate is booked for a late foul on Jack Grealish.
21:1919 days 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.
21:1819 days 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
21:1519 days 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.
21:1319 days ago


Joel Veltman fires a low effort towards Martinez's near post, but the Argentine collects easily. Brighton looking in control.
21:1119 days 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.
21:0819 days ago

Concern for both sides

Ollie Watkins and Yves Bissouma looked in pain after a collision, but the pair are good to carry on.
21:0419 days ago


Lewis Dunk plays a soft defensive header back to Rob Sanchez. Bertrand Traore has a stab at it, but the Brighton 'stopper collects.
21:0319 days 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.
21:0019 days ago
