Danny Welbeck scored his first goal for Brighton to give them an early lead over Aston Villa on Saturday.
What’s more, the former England man was set up by his old international teammate Adam Lallana in a brilliant move.

The match began with Villa suffering an early set back as Ross Barkley went off with what looked like a hamstring injury after only five minutes.
Things got worse for the hosts when they fell behind shortly afterwards.
The goal was against the run of play after 12 minutes as Welbeck was played in by Lallana and rounded off a strong run with a lovely lofted finish.
Villa responded well to falling behind but they were unable to make a breakthrough before half time. Welbeck’s goal separated the sides at the break as Brighton lead 1-0 at Villa Park.

Villa equalised right at the start of the second period.
Traore put a brilliant ball into the box from a free-kick and Ezri Konsa, timing his run to perfection, slid in to turn it home with an outstretched foot.
Brighton were soon back in front, though.
Pascal Gross switched play to the left flank, picking out March with a raking pass. March then curled a fine shot beyond Martinez and into the far corner of the net.
