Brighton 1 Newcastle 2 – Watch official video highlights here including ‘The Diame’

Brighton 1 Newcastle 2 – Tuesday 28 February 2017 7.45pm

What a match.

A little bit of everything and enjoy once again all the key moments below.

Brighton had the best of the early stages but just look at that penalty decision.

Justice was best served cold and late though.

No doubt at this very moment millions of schoolkids around the world are attempting to replicate ‘The Diame’…

What a goal that winner was though, a brilliant 60 yard diagonal ball from Ritchie but what a take down by Christian Atsu.

The way he then looked up and waited for Perez to have that yard of space was also very impressive, then the finish from the Spaniard was exquisite.

Then just look at the crowd scenes at the end of this footage below.
