How Brighton & Julio Enciso made history in rampant win over Wolves

A series of head-turning statistics have come to the fore on Saturday evening, aptly highlighting the impressive nature of Brighton & Hove Albion’s win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Brighton, of course, have taken their place front and centre in the English media headlines tonight.

This comes after the Seagulls, fresh off a pair of successive defeats over the course of the last week, bounced back in the most remarkable of fashion.

After welcoming the aforementioned Wolves to the Amex Stadium, Roberto De Zerbi’s troops ran riot, en route to an eventual 6-0 triumph.

All of Deniz Undav, Pascal Groß and Danny Welbeck were at the double, as Brighton climbed back up to 8th in the Premier League table.

On the back of the action coming to a close on England’s south coast, it should therefore come as little surprise to hear that Saturday’s victors have secured for themselves not one, but two new all-time club benchmarks.

First, De Zerbi and co. clinched the record for the biggest top-flight win in Brighton’s history, with their haul of 52 points also marking the most that a Seagulls outfit have ever pieced together.

After teeing up two of the club’s goals against Wolves, youngster Julio Enciso, meanwhile, also established himself as the youngest South American to ever notch two assists in a single Premier League fixture.
