STAT: The Seagulls won only one of their 17 Premier League home fixtures in 2020, beating Arsenal in June (D8, L8). Can they kick off 2021 with a late win to make it 1 out of 1 in the new year?

Trossard was fuming a moment ago as he raced onto a long ball and fired home. However, the whistle had gone much earlier for a supposed shove on a defender. It didn't look like much to be fair.

Nuno Espirito Santo was mumbling away to himself once that penalty was awarded. He would have spoken about avoiding silly errors early in the second period. Now Brighton are right back in this with their tails up!

Ki-Jana Hoever, who is back on the bench today: “We know we’ve been struggling a little bit recently to score goals, although we are creating some chances, but I think in training we are really working hard in trying to fix that. We want to attack a lot, but also defend well. It’s not a great stat with the goals we have conceded lately, but I think if we just keep focused and training hard, it will be better and you will see progression at both ends of the pitch; we will score more and concede less

Adam Webster: “It is a tough period for us, it feels like whatever we do we still don't get the rub of the green at the moment but we have to stick it at. I'm sure one result can turn it around for us. It would give us so much confidence and that belief to go on a run and pick up a couple of wins which can make such a massive difference in this league.”
