Brighton player ratings vs Newcastle: Danny Welbeck stars as superb Albion take huge step towards Premier League safety
Brighton have taken a big step towards Premier League safety after a blistering 3-0 win over hapless Newcaste.
It was a perfect night for Graham Potter's side, who dominated throughout.
Leandro Trossard opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time with a superb curling effort to follow up his match-winner against Southampton last weekend.
Ryan Fraser hit the post as the visitors started the second-half on the front foot but Danny Welbeck's stunning strike - his third goal of the season - put Albion firmly in control.
Newcastle never looked like getting back into the game and Neal Maupay made sure of that when he finished off a slick team move, with a fine volley, for his first goal in ten games.
