Percy Tau's Former Club Brighton Finally Finds A Top Spot After Back-To-Back Wins

Percy Tau's former club in the English Premier league, Brighton and Hove Albion finally found a top spot after back-to-back wins in the Premier league, considering their position on the table last season drowning near the relegation zone.

Brighton and Hove Albion who Percy Tau last played for before he made his way to Egypt to join up with Pitso Mosimane Al Ahly, now sits above Manchester City, Everton, Tottenham, Arsenal and Leicester City. Brighton and Hove Albion claimed the 4th place spot on the English Premier League table after they won their latest fixture against Leicester City 2-1 at full-time.

Brighton is on 12 points after 5 matches just one point behind Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United who are all on 13 points after 5 matches played. Brighton and Hove Albion's journey to reach the fourth place spot was not an easy task, as they had to win 4 out of 5 matches to reach the top four.

On matchday 1, Brighton and Hove Albion won 2-1 against Burnley for their first three points which got them on the map, as they impressed away from home. On matchday 2, Brighton took on Watford at home and stood victorious for a 2-0 win as they won back-to-back. On matchday 3, Brighton suffered their first defeat against Everton 2-0 at home.

On matchday 4, Brighton turned their fate around as they got back to winning ways with a 1-0 win over Brentford away from home. In their latest fixture which was matchday 5, Brighton won 2-1 against Leicester City as they made it into the top four as they sit in the 4th place spot.

Brighton claimed the victory against Leicester City as Neal Maupay scored in the 35th minute from the penalty spot, and Danny Welbeck in the 50th minute for a 2-0 lead until Jamie Vardy scored for Leicester City in the 61st minute for a 2-1 full-time score.

Percy Tau played with Brighton last season even though he had limited game-time, he had to play with the club who struggled to stay clear of the relegation zone, but finally this season Brighton and Hove Albion are top of the table as they are already on 12 points after just 5 matches, which will make their run for the season easier than last season. It is just a pity that Percy is no longer with them to enjoy the top of the table for once.
