Alexis Mac Allister scores twice for Brighton in 5-2 win vs. Leicester City


Alexis Mac Allister scored twice for Brighton in their 5-2 win vs. Leicester City.

Mac Allister, who started the match with two goals in the season, should have had a hat trick. Prior to scoring his first goal against Leicester City, he had a strike from well outside of the penalty area which was called off by VAR. The goal was incorrectly called off.

With Brighton leading 3-2, they were awarded a penalty and Mac Allister has been the club’s penalty taker. He scored one against West Ham and one against Fulham for his two goals.

Against Leicester City, it was Alexis who took it and scored his third penalty of the season to give Brighton the 4-2 lead.

The Argentine would score a second goal. A free kick for Brighton, Mac Allister would take it and score to bring his tally to four goals.

  1. He has positional sense, read the game very well, keeps everything simple, can score goal, can cross, can hold the ball, can defend..more like an European midfielder than an Argentine…
    Currently he has become one of the most important players for the Brighton. Would you believe.. He sits 8th in the premier league’s stat…of most tackle per game.

  2. The one final spot for the 7th Midfielder seems like will go down to the wire. If Enzo doesn’t make it for the September friendlys then he is out 100%. Clubs will play 6 champions legaue first round matches before the WC and fortunately for Enzo, he is in the same group with PSG and Juventus. If he can give solid performance against these teams then he will force Scaloni & Co to think again. But so far Scaloni will most likely stick with Depaul, Paredes and Locelso as his starting Midfielders. Guido & Papu as backups to them and Paredes and MacAllister as subs.

  3. Horrible decision by the referee to cancel the first goal based on the speculation that the Leicester player would have cleared the ball better if the Brighton player was not there.
    By this logic, any player in offside position even if not involved in the play can somehow affect how the defenders clear the ball and it’s always offside.
