Talking Point – Patience Rewarded

It was an entirely different set of Seagulls – psychologically at least – that ended the first part of their campaign than the one that started it. In October, Brighton would have perhaps been elated to get a home point against Marseille and finish second in their UEFA Europa League group. In December, And also after doing the double over Dutch giants Ajax. And also they believed they belonged and were not going to settle for anything less.

That self-belief applied to the manner in which Roberto De Zerbi asked his team to play. Even as Marseille stifled and stymied the creativity of Pascal Gross, Kaoro Mitoma, Joao Pedro and the rest, they kept their heads and continued plugging away. No major tactical changes were made in the closing minutes, even as some personnel gave way. Crucially those first three, who looked good throughout but lacked cutting edge, stayed on the pitch before finally finding a way through, as finally it clicked.

Player Of The Match – Kaoru Mitoma

A sympathy selection? Perhaps. But the Japanese international was involved in everything Brighton did bar the goal, and along with Simon Adingra offered them so much width that stretched Marseille from minute one, and made the space for Pedro and Gross to take advantage. Mitoma may not have scored for some 15 games now, and needs to, but he is an inspiration. And also as vital to their success as any of the 11.
