Thank you for joining our coverage, we hope you enjoyed the game. Until next time, goodbye!
Both sides have FA Cup Third Round ties next, with Brighton travelling to face Newport County, while Wolves host Crystal Palace.
There goes the full-time whistle! What a game! Brighton took the lead through Connolly, but a Saiss header, a Burn own-goal and a Neves penalty saw the visitors 3-1 up at the break. Maupay converted a penalty in the first minute of the second half to get Brighton back into the game, and Dunk headed in from a corner to equalise with 20 minutes left. The hosts dominated for the remainder of the contest, but Wolves' substitute Otasowie had the chance to win it for his side with the last touch of the game, but headed over the bar! It finishes 3-3!
90' + 3' MISS! That was Wolves' chance to win the game! Traore gets down the right and floats a cross into the middle for young substitute Otasowie, who is completely free in the box, but he gets under the ball and heads over the bar from six yards out! That was the last action of the game and the Wolves players all have their heads in their hands!
Nélson Semedo
Yellow Card
90' + 1' Semedo picks up the ball to prevent Brighton from taking a quick free-kick and Maupay wrestles it off him. The right-back is then shown a yellow card before play resumes.
89' The ball is lofted over the top for Neto to burst into space down the left, but the winger's touch is heavy and he can't keep the ball in play. 
O. Otasowie
Fábio Silva
87' Nuno throws on young holding midfielder Otasowie in place of a striker in Silva as he desperately tries to hold on for a point. 
85' Zeqiri and Maupay both see shots blocked as Brighton batter away at the Wolves defence. The visitors don't even look a threat on the counter at the moment.
83' Wolves are penned in as they are forced to repel wave after wave of Brighton attacks. They have everyone back in their half and Brighton's centre-backs are stationed on the halfway line.
81' March marauds down the left and Dunk plays a raking ball forward to him, but the flag goes up for offside. The hosts are dominating at the moment.
79' March is frustrated as an over-ambitious ball in behind is played towards Zeqiri rather than the safer option to him on the left wing in space. Brighton are going for the spectacular in their search for a dramatic winner.
77' Brighton are in the asendancy now and Trossard looks inspired, driving his side forward and feeding Maupay on the edge of the box, but the Frenchman's strike is blocked away.
75' Each of Lewis Dunk's last four Premier League goals have been scored in the 70th minute or later.
73' NO GOAL! Trossard thinks he's thumped Brighton in front as he races onto a long ball forward and lashes emphatically past Patricio, but the whistle goes for a push on Ait-Nouri! 
L. Trossard
70' Trossard's deliveries have been dangerous all game, with plenty of pace on them, and Dunk benefits from meeting this one!
L. Dunk
70' GOAL!!! BRIGHTON ARE LEVEL!!! Trossard's corner is whipped to the back post and Dunk gets away from his marker to meet it with his head. The centre-half tries to nod back across goal but it strikes the head of Saiss and is redirected to the near post and in, wrong-footing Patricio! Somehow, Brighton have brought it back to 3-3!
A. Lallana
D. Burn
69' Potter replaces the struggling Burn with Lallana and shifts to a back four in an attempt to haul his side level.
68' CROSSBAR! March's left-wing corner is met powerfully by Webster at the back post, but his header across goal smacks against the crossbar and stays out!
66' Kilman is on the left of the back three now, with Saiss is in the middle and Coady on the right. Nuno will hope the change in shape makes his side more solid for the remainder of the game.
M. Kilman
64' Nuno brings centre-back Kilman on for Vitinha, reverting to a 3-4-3 from their 4-2-3-1 in an attempt to see out the rest of the game.
62' BLOCK! The ball sits up perfectly for Trossard in the centre of the box and he thumps a low volley towards the bottom-left corner, but Coady throws himself in the way and makes a goal-saving block!
60' A corner is cleared to the edge of the box and Neves tries to lash a volley home, but he catches it all wrong, skewing it well wide and hurting himself in the process. It's not serious, however, and there's no need for a break in play.
D. Burn
Yellow Card
58' Burn is really struggling to deal with Traore as the winger bursts past him, hauling him back by his arm just outside the box and earning himself a yellow card.
56' BLOCK! Traore takes Burn on and produces a few flicks and tricks before fizzing the ball into the middle where Vitinha tries to backheel it in, but a desperate sliding block sends it up into the air and Sanchez holds on!
52' BLOCK! Brighton go straight down the other end on the counter and March feeds Zaqiri on the right side of the box, but his shot is charged down! March is then fouled by Ait-Nouri out wide to give Brighton a free-kick in a promising position.
51' NO PENALTY! Silva controls the ball in the centre of the box but is dispossessed with a clean sliding challenge. It comes out to Semedo just inside the area and he's bundled over, but the referee shakes his head and waves play on!
49' Since the start of last season, Maupay has scored 16 Premier League goals, 10 more than any other Brighton player during this period, with four of them coming from the penalty spot.
N. Maupay
Penalty Goal
46' GOAL!! BRIGHTON PULL ONE BACK!!! Maupay dusts himself down to take the spot-kick and smashes it high down the middle, with Patricio diving to his left! It's 3-2 now!
46' PENALTY TO BRIGHTON! Less than a minute into the second half, Maupay jinks into the box and Moutinho clumsily sticks a leg out that the forward goes over! The referee points to the spot!
46' We're back underway for the second half!
D. Pröpper
Y. Bissouma
46' Potter also makes a second change, with Bissouma - on a yellow card - going off for Propper in midfield.
A. Zeqiri
A. Connolly
46' Connolly, as expected, is replaced at the break and Zeqiri replaces him in the front line.
Potter will be furious with the manner in which his side have thrown their early lead away. Burn in particular will have to pick himself up ahead of the second half if the hosts are to have any chance of salvaging something from this game. 
There goes the half-time whistle! Brighton opened the scoring as Connolly turned Trossard's cross in at the near post, but Wolves equalised just six minutes later as Saiss powered home a header. Burn then had a 10-minute spell to forget, scoring an own-goal as Sanchez parried against him, before scything Traore down in the box to concede a penalty that Neves tucked away calmly. It's 3-1 to Wolves at the break!
45' + 3' Connolly has gone down off the ball clutching his right hamstring and it doesn't look good for the young forward. He trudges down the tunnel early and it's likely that he will have to be replaced ahead of the second half.
45' + 1' Burn is the first player to score an own goal and give away a penalty in the same Premier League game since Eliaquim Mangala for Man City against Hull in September 2014.
Rúben Neves
Penalty Goal
44' GOAL!! NEVES CONVERTS FROM THE SPOT!! The midfielder sends Sanchez the wrong way and fires calmly inside the right-hand post! That's a confident penalty and it's now 3-1 to Wolves!
44' PENALTY TO WOLVES! Traore surges down the right and gets past Burn and into the box at the byline, where the defender slides in and scythes the winger down! That's a clear penalty and Burn's day is going from bad to worse!
42' Bissouma clatters into Silva, conceding a free-kick. The Brighton midfielder has already been booked and has to be careful - too many more challenges likes that could see him sent off.
40' Neto has a bloody nose and it takes a couple of minutes to patch him up, but the youngster is okay and able to return to the pitch.
38' Neto is down and appears to be in some pain. The game is halted temporarily so the medical staff can attend to the winger. 
36' Since their promotion to the Premier League in 2017, Brighton have conceded more own goals than any other side in the top-flight.
D. Burn
Own Goal
34' OWN-GOAL!!! WOLVES ARE IN FRONT!! Neto works a yard with quick feet on the right and lashes a shot at goal from a tight angle. Sanchez can only parry onto Burn, however, and the pair watch helplessly as the ball trickles over the line! It's 2-1 to Wolves!
32' There's a mix-up in the box as Burn tries to head a left-wing cross back to his goalkeeper, but Sanchez can't get to it in time and it's out of play for a corner.
30' Both sides have been threatening from crosses, as they pepper each other's boxes with deliveries whenever possible. 
28' OVER! Moutinho takes a free-kick short to Neves on the edge of the box and the midfielder tries to find the top-right corner, but he doesn't catch it quite right and it's just over the bar!
25' SAVE! Webster carries the ball forward and dinks it to Connolly just inside the box. The striker tries a spectacular bicycle kick towards the bottom-right corner, but Patricio is down quickly to keep it out!
23' Five of Saiss' seven Premier League goals have been headers, including each of his last four.
22' BLOCK! Veltman crosses to March, who had made a run into the box, and the wide-man takes a shot at goal with his weaker right foot, but it's blocked away!
Y. Bissouma
Yellow Card
22' Bissouma is shown the first yellow card of the game for a heavy challenge on Ait-Nouri.
Nélson Semedo
19' Semedo produced a neat touch to keep the ball alive and showed great awareness to loft the ball into a dangerous area for Saiss to attack.
R. Saïss
19' GOAL!! WOLVES ARE LEVEL!!! Wolves have plenty of men forward for the corner and Semedo keeps the ball alive on the right before standing it up to the back post, where Saiss meets it and loops a header into the top-right corner! Sanchez wasn't getting anywhere near that! It's 1-1!
18' BLOCK! Moutinho fizzes the ball into the feet of Neves on the edge of the box and the midfielder has a go from range, but his dipping strike hits Bissouma and flies over the bar before dropping just behind the goal! It's a corner to Wolves.
15' Trossard has now assisted in both of his Premier League home apps against Wolves, helping Connolly to his first Premier League home goal in 16 appearances since netting a brace against Spurs in October 2019. 
L. Trossard
13' Trossard's energy and intent on the ball helped him craft an opening to deliver a chance that Connolly could hardly refuse!
A. Connolly
13' GOAL!! BRIGHTON TAKE THE LEAD!! Trossard drives at Ait-Nouri down the Brighton right, twisting and turning. The winger loses his footing momentarily, but still manages to work a yard and crosses towards the near post for Connolly. Saiss inexplicably fails to react and the young forward prods the ball in at the near post! It's 1-0 to Brighton!
11' Brighton press high as Wolves play out from the back, but Veltman is overzealous as he challenges Silva near the touchline and the young striker gets his body in front of the ball and wins the foul.
9' Wolves win two subsequent corners after their contentious first, but can't test Sanchez despite a couple of threatening deliveries.
7' Burn is furious with the decision to award Wolves a corner, believing the ball to have come off Traore last. It did appear to be a goal-kick, but the visitors have a set-piece.
5' WIDE! Neto takes over from Silva on the left and shifts effortlessly through the gears, bursting away from three Brighton defenders and surging into the box before lashing a shot at goal with his left foot, but he fires wide of the near post!
3' SAVE! Wolves work the ball into the final third with purpose and Vitinha drives to the edge of the box before squaring for Moutinho on his left. The midfielder sweeps a shot at goal from distance, but it's a little tame and Sanchez holds on!
1' The referee blows his whistle and the game is underway!
Wolves have won just one of their six Premier League games since Jimenez's injury (W1 D1 L4), scoring just four goals with an average expected goals total of 0.81 per match. Prior to this, Wolves had won five of their 10 Premier League games this season with the Mexican playing (1.02 xG per game).
In their top-flight history, Brighton have played more games against Wolves without losing than they have against any other opponent (10 – W7 D3). The Seagulls have kept eight clean sheets in these 10 matches, shipping just three goals in total.
Meanwhile, Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo makes two alterations to the team that lost 1-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Fernando Marcal, Raul Jimenez, Jonny, Leander Dendoncker and Willy Boly all miss out with injury issues.
Brighton boss Graham Potter makes five changes to the side that were beaten 1-0 by Arsenal last time out. Propper, Gross, Bernardo, Mac Allister and Jahanbakhsh are all dropped to the bench, with White, March, Trosard, Connolly and Maupay coming into the starting line-up. Tariq Lamptey, Jose Izquierdo and Florin Andone are all absent through injury.
Wolves substitutes: Luke Cundle, Maximilian Kilman, Lewis Richards, Taylor Perry, Ki-Jana Hoever, Andreas Sondergaard, John Ruddy, Theo Corbeanu, Owen Otasowie.
Wolves XI (4-2-3-1): Rui Patricio; Nelson Semedo, Conor Coady, Roman Saiss, Rayan Ait-Nouri; Joao Moutinho, Ruben Neves; Adama Traore, Vitinha, Pedro Neto; Fabio Silva.
Brighton and Hove Albion substitutes: Davy Propper, Jason Steele, Alexis Mac Allister, Pascal Gross, Alireza Jahanbakhsh, Andi Zeqiri, Jayson Molumby, Bernardo, Adam Lallana.
Brighton and Hove Albion XI (3-4-3): Robert Sanchez; Adam Webster, Lewis Dunk, Dan Burn; Joel Veltman, Ben White, Yves Bissouma, Solly March; Leandro Trossard, Aaron Connolly, Neal Maupay.
