Adam Lallana scoring and assisting in the EPL match gave Brighton a superb victory over red carded 10-men Wolves
On the day former Spain and Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui was announced as their new manager, Wolves demonstrated tenacity by playing the second half a man down after Nelson Semedo was sent off just before halftime.
Despite Wolves scoring twice in a game for the first time, they were unable to hold off increasing Brighton pressure and lost for the eighth time this season.
Lallana refuted claims that the Red carded Wolves have struggled in front of goal this season, pointing out that their 22 goals are more than Manchester United and Chelsea.
Wolves took a 2-1 lead after a pulsating first period in which they responded to a rare Adam Lallana goal with goals from Goncalo Guedes and a penalty from Ruben Neves.
They then conceded an equalizer to Japan international Kaoru Mitoma just before halftime.
Winger Mitoma was a key figure in the game, and it was his run into the box that set up Gross’ winner.
Wolves are now second-bottom of the league with 10 points, while Brighton are sixth.
