Brighton is the 53rd club to finish first in the English Premier League (EPL).
In the 2023-2024 season, the EPL went through two rounds. At the top of the leaderboard is none other than Brighton. The Seagulls faced Luton Town and Wolverhampton in the first and second rounds, respectively, winning both games 4-1. They scored 8 goals and conceded 2 in those 2 games, which puts them at the top of the table. They are ahead of Manchester City and Arsenal, who both have two wins along with Brighton, on goal difference.
The Seagulls are likely to remain atop the table through the weekend, at least. They are the 53rd club to top the EPL, according to European soccer statistics provider Opta. Brighton is in its 11th EPL season. They have played 398 games in the EPL and this is their first time at the top.
“Opta” additionally identifies the team that has been in the top spot the longest. At the top of the list is Manchester United. According to Opta, the Red Devils have held the top spot for 2362 days. Although they have faltered somewhat since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club, United have been one of the EPL’s powerhouses. Since Ferguson’s departure, United has only spent 78 days in first place. 온라인카지노
