Pascal Gross at the double as Brighton end Premier League goal drought in style

Brighton broke both their Premier League duck and goal drought in style by thumping West Brom 3-1 at the Amex Stadium.

Midfielder Pascal Gross bagged a brace and laid on the third for Tomer Hemed as the Seagulls stunned Tony Pulis’ usually robust Baggies.

German star Gross cost Brighton just £3million from Ingoldstat and the industrious 26-year-old offered a quick-fire return on that smart investment on the south coast.

The former Ingoldstat midfielder scored twice before teeing up Hemed for the third. On a day when Brighton badly needed to assert some kind of top-flight presence, the German delivered.

Stat of the day

Veteran West Brom midfielder Gareth Barry faced his 45th different team in the Premier League, equalling the record set by Ryan Giggs.
