Safe to say the top of the table clash between Newcastle United and Brighton lived upto all it’s expectations. Newcastle have been a top side throughout the season but Brighton had already caught up to them by the time they faced off last night.
In the end, Brighton fell victim to two late goals scored by the Magpies and succumbed to a 2-1 defeat. As a result, Newcastle now have a two point lead over them at the top of the table.
The winner came after an absolutely delicious 60 yard pass from Matt Ritchie for Atsu. Ayoze Perez then slotted home from close range with barely a minute of normal time left.
The goal naturally left the Newcastle fans and players very happy, but none more so than star midfielder Jonjo Shelvey.
He was so pumped up, he got right into the face of Brighton captain Bruno, who himself seemed incredulous at the goal that his side conceded.
