Albion ended their nine-match winless run with a 1-0 win away at Leeds.

The only goal of the game came in the first half with Neal Maupay scoring his seventh of the season after a lovely passing move.

The Seagulls also hit the bar when Leandro Trossard’s cross was deflected onto the frame of the goal.

Head coach Graham Potter made three changes from their 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday.

Maupay, Solly March, and Pascal Gross came into the side for Bernardo, Davy Propper, and Percy Tau.

Yves Bissouma and Steven Alzate returned to the squad but were only on the bench.

Albion were given an early warning as Ezgjan Alioski found space down the left and he flashed a ball across the six-yard box, which Rodrigo could not get on the end of.

That early chance for Leeds seemed to spark Albion into life and they had an appeal for a penalty.

Alexis Mac Allister played a ball in behind to Maupay, who went down in the box after a coming together with Luke Ayling.

However, referee Kevin Friend waved away the appeals from the Frenchman and the replays showed there was very little contact from the Leeds defender.

Albion took the lead in the 16th minute after a superb passing move.

Mac Allister shaped to shoot from distance, but instead carried the ball and picked out Trossard inside the box.

He neatly flicked the ball back into the path of Mac Allister, who had continued his run.

The Argentinian then rolled the ball across the box to Maupay at the back post and he tapped the ball into an empty net.

Trossard nearly doubled their lead after Burn played a pass to him on the edge of the box.

The Belgian international then drove into the penalty area before seeing his cross deflect off Ayling and onto the bar.

Potter’s side continued where they left off after the break with Maupay playing a give-and-go with Mac Allister, but the striker fired wide from just outside the box.

The visitors then had a great chance to level the scores after Raphinha cut inside from the left and picked out Patrick Bamford, who was dispossessed.

But the ball fell to Jack Harrison who took a touch before curling his effort wide of the post.

Leeds almost gifted Albion a goal after overplaying the ball.

Alioski’s pass back to Cooper was intercepted by Maupay, who drove towards the right byline and cut the ball back to Trossard.

However, his first-time effort flew over the bar.

Leeds introduced Tyler Roberts and Pablo Hernandez and they started to make a difference.

Hernandez whipped in a cross which Bamford got the slightest of touches on with his head, but he could not direct it goalwards.

Leeds keeper Kiko Casilla made an error last weekend in their defeat against Crawley in the FA Cup and nearly made another.

Adam Webster drove forward with the ball and had a go from distance.

His effort was caught by Casilla and then spilled, but luckily he managed to react quickly and claim it.
