Brighton recorded their first away Premier League win, with a 3-0 win over West Ham at the Olympic Stadium. Goals in the first half from Glenn Murray and Jose Izquierdo and a second-half penalty from Murray saw The Seagulls to a comfortable win. The win moves them up to 10th place in the Premier League.

Brighton players rated and slated in their comfortable win:

Matthew Ryan (7):

A comfortable evening for the Brighton keeper only had to come and catch a few corners. The only shot he saved was from Manuel Lanzini and that was straight at him.

Bruno (7.5):

Great again from The Albion captain, he made numerous blocks and tackles to help The Seagulls to a clean sheet. He Kept Marko Arnautović quiet.

Shane Duffy (8):

Another solid performance from the Irish centre-half. He made a number of great blocks and tackles to thwart West Ham. He also was again dominant in the air again.

Lewis Dunk (8):

Again was solid at the heart of the defence alongside Duffy. He made some brilliant blocks to throw himself in front of shots from the edge of the box. He also helped to keep Javier Hernandez very quiet.

Gaetan Bong (8):

The Cameroon full-back came into the side and had a terrific game at left-back. He got up and down the left flank well and kept Michail Antonio very quiet.

Anthony Knockaert (7.5):

The French winger was back to the form of last season that saw him terrorizing defenders. He ran at the West Ham defence and made Arthur Masuaku evening particularly difficult.

Davy Propper (7):

The Dutch midfielder was again very solid in the centre of the park. He got involved and made some great interceptions and tackles to rob Lanzini when he was getting dangerously close to the box.

Dale Stephens (7):

Solid from Stephens again in the centre of the park. He got involved and made some good interceptions and tackles. He also combined well with Propper well in what looks a very solid central midfield partnership.

Jose Izquierdo (7.5):

Exactly why Brighton paid £16 million pounds. He ran and terrorized Pablo Zabaleta. His goal just on the stroke of half-time was incredible. He cut inside of Zabaleta and curled his effort into the top right corner.

Pascal Gross (8):

Has turned out to be the signing of the season at just a few million pounds. Grabbed an assist for Murray’s first goal to mean he has only not been involved in one The Seagulls goals this season. Put in some real threatening deliveries into the box.

Glenn Murray (9):

Terrific from the Brighton striker. Opened his account for the season with a brace. A good header from him to open the scoring. He then won the penalty in the second half which he converted to make it three.

Substitutes:

Solly March (6):

Came on in the 65th minute for Izquierdo. Had a shot from outside the box which hit the side-netting. Apart from that didn’t really do an awful lot.

Izzy Brown, N/A:

Hard to rate as only got five minutes coming on for Gross with five minutes left.

Ezequiel Schelotto (N/A):

Came on with just a few minutes left of the game for Knockaert.
