EPL: Brighton stunned Manchester City, Chelsea beats Leicester City

Manchester City surrendered a two-goal lead as Dan Burn’s first Premier League goal secured a thrilling 3-2 comeback win for Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Premier League champions led early through Ilkay Gundogan but had to play for over 80 minutes without Joao Cancelo, who was sent off for a foul on Danny Welbeck. Buoyed by an 8,000-strong crowd, Brighton eventually made their numerical advantage count.

 

In other matches, Chelsea boosted their hopes of Champions League qualification with a vital 2-1 victory over Leicester City in the penultimate game of both sides’ Premier League seasons.

Thomas Tuchel’s men avenged their defeat in Saturday’s FA Cup final with a win secured by Antonio Rudiger and Jorginho goals in front of 10,000 fans at Stamford Bridge.

Three points saw the Blues leapfrog their opponents, who netted late on through Kelechi Iheanacho, into third place in the Premier League to keep a top-four finish firmly in their hands going into the last day.

Also, An Edinson Cavani wonder strike was not enough to earn Manchester United three points as they laboured to a 1-1 draw against already relegated Fulham.
