Brighton & Hove Albion ensured they would be in the Premier League for at least another season after upsetting Manchester United at the Amex Stadium on Friday night.
In truth, the Seagulls were the best team throughout and triumphed 1-0 courtesy of a Pascal Gross header.
And defender Lewis Dunk was ecstatic after the game.
“It’s obviously a great feeling, we finally done it after a hard season,” Dunk said. “We put everything into every game and thankfully we got there in the end.
“We got thrown in at the deep end against Manchester City on the opening day of the season – the Premier League champions and probably one of the best sides in history.
“I thought we did alright on that day, and that showed that if we can do it against them, then we can do it against anyone.
“We showed that again today, against a team like Manchester United with the huge history that they’ve got.”
DALE STEPHENS’ TWEET ABOUT PAUL POGBA
Each and every Brighton player deserves credit for their performance.
Dale Stephens had a marvellous game in midfield as he outshone Paul Pogba.
And a tweet the former Charlton player wrote about Paul Pogba in 2016 has been unearthed, and it’s absolutely quality.
“£100m for pogba? No chance he’s 10x better than me….” Stephens wrote.
Quality. Although it’s slightly inaccurate, (Pogba went for £89.3 million), the rest he said was true.
You would never be able to tell who the £89.3 million player was after last night’s performance.
In fact, if you had no clue and had to hazard a guess, you would probably say that Stephens was.
Regardless, Dale, last night proved that you were right…
And the fans that managed to unearth the tweet showed their appreciation to Stephens after he kept Pogba quiet for the whole game.
DUNK THINKS THAT BRIGHTON COULD BE A ‘MASSIVE CLUB’
And Lewis Dunk thinks that Brighton have all the tools to become a ‘massive club’.
“For me, it’s probably a little bit more special,” he stated. “I’ve seen the club rise from nothing really. I’ve seen it from the times where the University was our training ground.
“But to see where the club is now, it’s amazing. We’re in the Premier League again next season, and it’s only going to improve from here.
“We’ve got everything to be a massive club, and hopefully the chairman invests again and we’ll push on next season.”
