Chris Hughton delighted with "outstanding" Brighton & Hove Albion win

Chris Hughton is delighted with Brighton & Hove Albion's "outstanding" performance in their 3-0 Premier League win at West Ham United on Friday night.

Chris Hughton has paid tribute to Brighton & Hove Albion's "outstanding" performance in their 3-0 win at West Ham United on Friday night.

A Glenn Murray brace either side of Jose Izquierdo's stunning strike on the stroke of half time gave the Seagulls their first away win this season.

The result also marks Brighton's first top-flight victory away from home since March 1983, as well as their joint-biggest away top-flight win, equalling their 3-0 victory at Crystal Palace in April 1981.

"I thought we were outstanding," Hughton told Sky Sports News. "A huge part of the game is how you defend and I thought we defended the crosses and made a lot of blocks.

"We certainly made the most of it. I'm as pleased with the clean sheet as I am with the goals. We used the ball well and nullified the qualities West Ham have got."

The result sees Brighton edge up into 10th place in the Premier League table.
