Brighton and Hove Albion player ratings vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

Glenn Murray’s 48th-minute strike ensured that Brighton and Hove Albion registered three back-to-back wins in the top flight for the first time since 1981.

Wolves enjoyed more possession and dominated proceedings in the midfield but were unable to convert their territorial domination into something fruitful. Matt Doherty had the best chance of the first half but fired his shot agonisingly wide of the far post.

Doherty once again called Matt Ryan into action with a perfectly placed effort from range in the second half and the Australian international pulled off a brilliant reflex save in the dying stages of the game to deny Ryan Bennett.

Matt Ryan registered his third clean sheet in a row as Nuno Espirito Santo’s men just seem to be losing momentum with two consecutive defeats.

The Seagulls climbed up to 11th in the standings and will be facing Everton away from home next week.

Matt Ryan (8/10)

Pulled off a brilliant save to deny Matt Doherty from range and followed it up with a sharp reflex save to keep out Ryan Bennett’s effort from close range; looked very confident with his handling.

Bruno (7.5/10)

Making his first start of the Premier League this season, the 38-year-old Spaniard looked in great touch. He was not at all rusty and assisted Glenn Murray for the first goal; made some crucial blocks in the second half and dealt brilliantly with the threat of Adama Traore and Helder Costa.

Lewis Dunk (7/10)

Looked a bit awkward at times but kept things tight at the back and put in a solid shift; made some important blocks and wasn’t afraid to stick his foot out when needed.

Shane Duffy (7.5/10)

Had a great chance to open the scoring from a corner but fired his header tantalizingly wide of the post; put his body on the line to make some crucial blocks in the second half as Wolves pressed for the equalizer.

Gaetan Bong (6.5/10)

The Cameroonian international looked solid and composed at the back and did not allow the likes to Helder Costa and Matt Doherty too much space to work with.’

Alireza Jahanbakhsh (6/10)

The Iranian had a decent game down the right and played some good crosses into the box but struggled to get into the game at times and did not look too threatening.

Dale Stephens (6.5/10)

He showed a lot of tenacity in central midfield and won back possession with some sharp interceptions; did not offer too much going forward but added stability to the midfield.

Beram Kayal (7/10)

He cut out the attacks from the midfield and carried the ball forward with purpose; tidy with his passing and a good performance overall.

Jose Izquierdo (6/10)

Tracked back and helped out his defenders with his pace; found himself in promising positions in the attacking third with Wolves pressing for an equalizer but wasn’t up to the mark with his decision making.

Solly March (6/10)

Not his best performance by any means. Got into promising positions down the flanks but let the team down with his final ball.

Glenn Murray (7.5/10)

The 35-year-old scored his sixth goal of the season to propel the Seagulls to their third consecutive victory. Looked good with his link-up play and always posed a threat in the final third.
