Brighton defender becomes the oldest player to assist a Premier League goal since Jussi Jaaskelainen

38-year-old Bruno played a key part in his side’s 1-0 win today, while Isaac Success sealed Watford’s win.

BRIGHTON BEAT WOLVES 1-0 in the Premier League today, as Glenn Murray scored his 100th goal for the club.

Defender Bruno played a key part in the victory, becoming the oldest player to assist a Premier League goal since Jussi Jaaskelainen in 2014.

Bruno fired the ball across goal and Murray side-footed in from close range in the 48th minute.

Bournemouth closed on fifth-placed Tottenham with a 3-0 win away to Fulham.

Callum Wilson won and then scored a 14th-minute penalty after he was brought down by Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

David Brooks then scored his third goal in four games to double the Cherries’ lead in the 72nd minute.

Minutes later, Fulham’s day went from bad to worse when captain Kevin McDonald was sent off for a second bookable offence following a late challenge on Brooks.

Wilson rounded out Bournemouth’s victory when he scored his second goal five minutes from time at Craven Cottage.

Watford were far too strong for Huddersfield in a 3-0 win at Vicarage Road.

They were 2-0 up inside 19 minutes thanks to two well-struck goals.

Roberto Pereyra broke the deadlock in the 10th minute with a superb solo effort, collecting the ball out wide on the left and beating six Huddersfield defenders as he cut inside before shooting from the edge of the area.

The Hornets doubled their lead nine minutes later when more dire defending by the visitors allowed Gerard Deulofeu to dribble past Chris Lowe, beat another attempted challenge and then score from a tight angle 15 yards out.

The aptly-named Isaac Success sealed Watford’s win 10 minutes from time.

Defeat dropped Huddersfield to the bottom of the table after Newcastle, previously propping up the division, managed a point in a goalless draw at home to Southampton.

Leicester face West Ham in Saturday’s late kick-off.
