Brighton on fire in four goal rout of Portsmouth

Brighton were in fine form as they dispatched Portsmouth with a 4-0 victory in the EFL Cup on Thursday night.

Alexis Mac Allister nodded in Alireza Jahanbakhsh's cross seven minutes before half-time to open the scoring for Albion.

Jahanbakhsh then scored with a superb 20-yard shortly after half-time before Bernardo made it 3-0.

Pascal Gross rounded out the victory which will see Brighton face Preston North End in the third-round.

Spoeaking after the gnae, Seagulls boss Graham Potter said: "I'm really happy, the application was first-class, we've trained well this week. There was a really good attitude in the group, it's nice to score goals, keep a clean sheet and win.

"[Alireza Jahanbakhsh] is getting better and better, pushing all the time, training really well, he's pushing, and you'll see from his performance tonight he's enthusiastic, he's got some quality and he'll play a part for us this season."
