The Villans thought they had an opportunity to equalise in the 95th minute after Solly March appeared to clip Trezeguet, leading to Oliver pointing to the spot. They had taken the lead in the first-half through Danny Welbeck, only to be pegged back by an equaliser from Ezri Konsa shortly after the interval.

Aston Villa were denied a stoppage time penalty against Brighton after Michael Oliver overturned his original decision.

Sixth-placed Villa's patchy form continued as they suffered their third successive home defeat, the setback against Brighton coming after a 3-0 win at Arsenal following losses to Leeds and Southampton.

Welbeck, who endured a hard year at relegated Watford last season with only two league goals in 18 appearances, was delighted after opening his account at Brighton.

"We've had some good performances but today we got the result as well". I'm obviously happy to get off the mark with the goal.

Bertrand Traore's free-kick reached Konsa at the far post and the unmarked Villa defender slid in for a clinical finish.

The referee was asked to consult the pitch-side monitors before making a final decision, and having noted that March kicked the ball against his opponent before making contact, chose to reverse his call.

"For a moment I had my heart in my mouth but I got a bit of the ball", he said to the BBC.
