Jota has now scored 11 goals in the Premier LeagueDiogo Jota scored twice as Wolves stretched their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 11 games with a 2-2 draw at Brighton.All four goals were scored in an entertaining first half, with Jota putting the visitors ahead following a quick counter-attack, playing a one-two with Raul Jimenez before slotting in.Then came a crazy couple of minutes as Brighton turned the game on its head.
First, Neal Maupay equalised after latching on to a long ball from Jack Stephens before thumping a strike beyond Rui Patricio's reach.Then, just 96 seconds later, the Seagulls took the lead when Davy Propper headed in Leandro Trossard's cross.Brighton went close to adding a third when Aaron Mooy swept an effort just wide of the far post, before Jota equalised a minute before half-time. Jonny pounced on a defensive mistake before finding Jota inside the area and the Portuguese forward turned and tucked a shot in at the far post.The second half failed to match the high tempo of the first, with Brighton's Maupay going closest to finding a winner when he fired a fierce shot that was held by Patricio.The point moves Wolves up to sixth in the table, while Brighton remain 12th.
Fearless Seagulls keep up attacking intent
The late afternoon Sunday game may not have featured one of the Premier League's traditional big guns but it nevertheless offered the prospect of an entertaining game, with both these teams having shown plenty of willingness to attack this season.They certainly delivered in a fast-paced first half in which both sides scored twice - only the third time that has happened this season after Norwich's 3-2 defeat by Chelsea and Liverpool's 5-2 victory over Everton.Fresh from beating Arsenal 2-1 last-time out, Brighton showed no fear against a Wolves side that had not lost in their previous 10 games and could easily have been out of sight in the first half, with Maupay's energy and Mooy's creativity proving a constant menace for the visitors' backline. But Wolves' attacking flair is a lot for many Premier League teams to handle and in the end a draw was perhaps a fair result.However, if Brighton continue to play with this level of positivity they are unlikely to be looking too nervously over their shoulders in the second half of the season.
Wolves' unbeaten run continues
It is already hard to believe that relegation looked a serious threat for Wolves this season but that was certainly the case after they failed to win any of their first six Premier League games and appeared to struggle with juggling domestic and Europa League commitments.But Nuno Espirito Santo's side have roared back impressively since recording their first Premier League win of the season on 28 September, when they beat Watford. They had won three of their four league games prior to the trip to the Amex and another win would have taken them back above both Tottenham and Manchester United into fifth in the table.Like Brighton, they lacked that bit of extra energy in the second half as a third game in seven days perhaps took its toll.But an 11th game without defeat means they are now on their longest unbeaten run in the top flight since 1962 and are looking well placed to challenge for a top-six finish.

After going 11 games without scoring this was a welcome return to form in front of goal for Diogo Jota, who looked sharp throughout and linked up superbly with Raul Jimenez
