Brighton defender Burn bouncing after being matchwinner against Man City

Brighton defender Dan Burn was full of pride after scoring for victory against Manchester City.

The defender capped a brilliant second-half fightback by Albion with the winning goal as his side came from 2-0 down to beat ten-man Manchester City 3-2.

It was also Burn's first goal for three years and he feared it might have been ruled out for offside.

He told the club's website, “I've been waiting a long time for a Premier League goal. I've had a few cancelled out by VAR and to be honest I thought I might have been offside when I scored so I was delighted it went over the line and I got my first one.

“It's a huge result for us and to do it with fans back was fantastic. I think City are the best team in the world and have proved that over the years. Credit to the lads, I thought it was a brilliant performance by everyone."
