Brighton are managed by Chris Hughton who in 2017 became the first manager in the club's history to lead the Seagulls into the Premier League, after ending their 34-year wait for a return to the top-flight.
Hughton was appointed on New Year's Eve 2014. Hughton came in and steadied the ship - following the departure of Sami Hyypia - saving the club from relegation after steering his troops to 20th place. Brighton improved significantly since Hughton's arrival, and went on to finish 3rd in 2015/16 (losing in the play-offs), before clinching promotion in 2016/17.
Brighton and Hove Albion have reaped 6 wins in the last 10 games, beating Wigan Athletic, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Queens Park Rangers, Birmingham City, Blackburn Rovers and Derby County. 1 draws against Aston Villa and defeats to Bristol City, Norwich City and Leeds United has seen them score 14 at an average of 1.4 goals per game while shipping 9.
