Brighton are the best away side in the Premier League according to new statistics.
Graham Potter's Seagulls got their season off to a flying start after stunning Manchester United at Old Trafford on the opening day, though it shouldn't have come as much of a surprise.
Last season, Brighton were one of just five Premier League teams to have fared better on the road than at home, earning seven more points on their travels (29) than they did at the Amex (22), making them the deadliest away side in the division.

Watford were equally as effective away from home, earning seven more points (15 in total) on the road than they did at home, though because of the Hornets' measly points total, Brighton's achievement earns them the plaudits.
The three other sides with a superior away record last season were Chelsea, who won six more points on their travels than they did at home, Wolves, who won three more, and Leeds, who won two more.
The team with the best home advantage last season was Everton, who earned a whopping 29 of their 39 points at Goodison Park. Leicester followed closely behind, with 34 of their 52 points being won at the King Power.
