Follow live coverage as Brighton & Hove Albion face Fulham in the Premier League today.

Fulham’s top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic was absent for his side’s clash with Brighton due to a “minor injury”. The Serbia striker, who has hit 11 of the Cottagers’ 34 Premier League goals this term, was replaced by Harry Wilson.

Evan Ferguson returned to lead Albion’s attack as sixth hosted seventh at the Amex Stadium. The Republic of Ireland striker, who has scored three goals in his last five top-flight outings, replaced Deniz Undav in the only change made by Seagulls boss Roberto De Zerbi.

We will bring you all the action and updates from today's game in the live blog below:

That snatch-and-grab victory from the visitors sees them leapfrog Brighton in the table, rising to sixth at the Seagulls' expense. They're now just a sole point behind fifth-placed Tottenham having played a game more, and Brighton are three points behind them with at least a game in hand on each of the two London sides above them.

Brighton were their own worst enemies in front of goal, but if they had found a breakthrough, there would've been no Seagull more deserving than Solly March. The wideman managed three shots from inside the box, totalling 0.28 xG, as well as 19 final-third passes, creating five big chances in the process. He contested a game-high 14 duels, winning eight with four successful dribbles from five, and also won possession six times with three tackles, albeit committing three fouls and winning one. Solly'd.

It's all over, and Fulham's late flourish sees them take all three points from a wasteful Brighton! The second half had all the chances, verve and drama that the first lacked, with a plethora of chances at both ends. Brighton were by far the dominant side though, calling Leno into action on several occasions to deny Mac Allister and Mitoma, with Lamptey and Dunk also going close to no avail. Fulham made their rare chance count though, as substitutes Vinicius and Solomon linked up for the latter to slam home the winner which sends Fulham above the Seagulls and firmly into European contention!

WIDE!!! What an equaliser that would've been!!! Mac Allister steps up to strike the free-kick from 27 yards, which beats both the wall and Leno before curling inches to the wrong side of the post! That'll be the last action of the game, as Brighton go oh so close yet again!
