Brighton were looking to extend their winning run after a 4-1 victory against Chelsea. Wolves are currently 19th with 10 points from 15 matches, while Brighton sit in 6th, with 21 points from 15.

The Seagulls found the net first, when Adam Lallana gave them the lead on the 10 minute mark. However, their lead was short-lived, as an equalizer from Goncalo Guedes on the 12 minute mark, brought Wolves level. The momentum was again with Wolves, who then scored again courtesy of a goal from Ruben Neves, 35 minutes in to establish a 2-1 result. However, their lead was short-lived, as Kaoru Mitoma equalised for Brighton just before half-time and saw the first half out 2-2.
