Wolverhampton has continued their impressive run of form where they are yet to lose in 12 games on the stretch and on Sunday they were involved in an interesting game that had four goals in ninety minutes.

It was Wolves who took the lead in the four-goal thriller as Diogo Jota gave the Nuno Espirito Santo-led side the lead just two minutes before the half-hour mark after an assist from Raul Jimenez who laid the ball to him as he side-footed the ball into the goal.

However, the Seagulls scored just four minutes after and it was two quickfire goals in just two minutes as they equalized and took the lead for the first time in the game. French forward Neal Maupay scored to make it two goals in two games in the 34th minute after his goal against Arsenal in midweek.

He hit a first time shot from a lofted ball from Stephens, and his goal was quickly followed by another, and this time it was Davy Propper who found the back of the net from a Leandro Trossard pull back.

However, just when the Seagulls thought they would go into the break with a lead, Diogo Jota netted his second of the game from Jonny’s assist who benefitted from a Propper’s weak side pass to put an end to an interesting half.

The second half was interesting albeit without goals as VAR was checked for a Lewis Dunk infraction and Pedro Neto failed to maximize a Patrick Cutrone’s pullback. Up next for Brighton in the four remaining games of 2019 is an away game to Crystal Palace and they welcome Sheffield United and visit Spurs before having Bournemouth as their last visitor for 2019.

Wolves will host Besiktas in the Europa League on Thursday while Spurs will visit next weekend as well as a journey to the Canaries and they host Manchester City and travel to Anfield in the last games of 2019.

Wolves are fancied at 1.53 to beat Besiktas in the Europa League, while Besiktas are pegged at 6.19.
