Brighton strengthened their top-six spot and secured European football with an emphatic win against Southampton, who were relegated. Theo Walcott could have leveled early on but missed Carlos Alcaraz’s pass wide before Kaoru Mitoma created space on the edge of the box before shooting narrowly wide from range.
Albion’s 18-year-old then wrote himself into its history books with an outstanding strike that doubled Albion’s lead. Mohamed Elyounoussi tried to rally a comeback attempt but Pascal Gross finished off victory with another brilliant strike to seal victory and ensure Albion would stay unbeaten this season.
Evan Ferguson scored twice
Evan Ferguson has made waves at Brighton with an outstanding debut season as an 18-year-old player, helping the Seagulls into the top six and earning selection for Ireland senior squad.
Ferguson took the opportunity to prove his mettle against top-level opposition despite Southampton’s threat of relegation, escaping his marker easily before unleashing a low shot that gave Brighton an early lead at Amex Stadium. Alex McCarthy could do nothing about it!
Brighton thought they had scored again moments later when Theo Walcott’s finish was disallowed due to VAR. However, Brighton were able to achieve historic victory when Pascal Gross sent in a shot from distance which beat McCarthy and tied Glenn Murray and Neal Maupay’s club record of 26 Premier League goals with one shot on target.
Karou Mitoma doubled Brighton’s lead
Karou Mitoma once again demonstrated why he is such an integral player at Brighton as he led them to a top-seven finish. The 18-year-old scored two first-half goals to put Brighton in charge before Mohamed Elyounoussi got one back for Cardiff City.
Mitoma used his pace and strength to set up Ferguson for an easy finish in the second half. Mitoma then had an opportunity to extend their lead via Solly March’s pass; unfortunately his shot went over the bar.
Theo Walcott thought he had scored, only for it to be disallowed due to offside. Pascal Gross then secured their victory with a low strike past Alex McCarthy ensuring Brighton qualified for Europe for the first time ever in their history.

Mohamed Elyounoussi pulled one back
Brighton FC’s 18-year-old sensation, Lewis Young was an absolute pleasure to watch at the Amex. His second goal of the afternoon ensured their first European competition spot: when he played an inviting cross into the box for March to head past Bazunu for their winning goal.
Kaoru Mitoma sliced an attempt wide before Jurgen Locadia forced McCarthy into making an impressive save with his close-range shot.
Saints began to struggle after Tino Livramento fell with what appeared to be an injury that required hospitalisation, followed by Theo Walcott’s strike being disallowed due to offside rules – only for Pascal Gross to restore a two-goal advantage with a superb left-foot dribble and low shot into the far post from just outside his own penalty area.
Pascal Gross scored a third
Gross, an adaptable player capable of operating both defensively and midfieldally, has been one of Brighton’s unsung heroes this season in the Premier League. While rarely making headlines himself, Gross remains one of their most crucial members and his new contract that runs to 2025 is well deserved.
Gross is an integral component of Brighton but stands out due to his talent for creating chances. Solly March and Leandro Trossard have caused havoc for opponents with their wastefulness but Gross has excelled at ensuring Brighton don’t miss those opportunities when they arise. He excels at using Cruyff turns with teammates as well, creating 13 big chances during this campaign alone – an integral reason why Brighton will be ready for European competition next season.
