João Pedro scored a late winner for Brighton & Hove Albion, guiding them to a narrow 1-0 win over Aston Villa at the Amex Stadium.

The Seagulls had the better chances in the closely contested first half, with clear opportunities being scarce.

Robin Olsen made some important saves to keep the game goalless at half-time and kept his side in the game.

Despite both teams having goals disallowed for offside in the second half, it seemed like the match was destined for a goalless draw.

However, Brighton had the opportunity to snatch victory when Ezri Konsa fouled Simon Adingra in the box.

Although João Pedro's initial penalty was saved, he headed in the rebound, ending Brighton's six-game winless streak.

With this result, Roberto De Zerbi's men climbed to 11th in the table, while Villa remain in fourth place, seven points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur, who will play Liverpool later on today.

As a Brighton fan, I am beyond grateful for Joao Pedro's late winner against Aston Villa. It was a tough game and we were struggling to find the back of the net, but his goal gave us the much-needed victory. Big thanks to Robin Olsen for his important saves as well. This win breaks our winless streak and puts us in a solid position in the table. Can't wait for the next game!
