Favour Fawunmi got on the scoresheet twice as West Ham returned to winning ways with a 5 – 0 demolition away win at Brighton Hove Albion. He opened the scoring for his team in the 11th minute. He was able to overturn possession for his team before finishing smartly from close range. For his second and his team’s fourth goal, he pounced on a defensive error before placing his shot into the bottom corner. Despite usually being deployed on the wing, Fawunmi started in a front two at top alongside Ryan Battrum. This role change paid off as the 16-year-old capped off a very good performance with a brace to open his account for the season.

Samuel Amo-Ameyaw – Southampton U18
