Southampton picked up their first points of the 2019/20 Premier League season after a hard-fought 2-0 win at Brighton.

Brighton were reduced down to 10 men following a shocking challenge by Florin Andone on Yan Valery which could have easily been a leg breaker.

The hosts then had a goal disallowed a few minutes later after Lewis Dunk headed home from a corner before VAR ruled it out due to Dan Burn backing into Angus Gunn and knocking him over from an offside position.

Moussa Djenepo sparked the game into life early in the second-half just a couple of minutes after coming on by picking the ball up on the left, cutting inside and curling a superb effort into the far corner.

After Brighton were pressing for an equaliser, Saints sealed the win following a Sofiane Boufal run down the left, where the Moroccan played the ball across goal for Nathan Redmond to slot home.
