Brighton welcomed back fans to the Amex Stadium with a stirring 3-2 comeback win over Premier League champions Manchester City on Tuesday night.

The stunning victory for Graham Potter’s Seagulls left Pep Guardiola and his staff rattled at the full-time as they shared heated words with Graham Potter on a raucous evening on the south coast.

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

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 Potter’s hosts was a first in eight Premier League attempts against the Champions League finalists.

It came at a cost for both sides, with Welbeck and Gundogan each limping off injured, although that could not dampen the spirit of the euphoric home faithful at full-time.
