Can't ignore the fact that Brighton made us look like a non league outfit. The difference between both sides was there to be seen. Olise and Eze are not defensive players they come alive in the opponents half and need strong experienced players around them to get the best out of them. Potter has done wonders for Brighton they are only a couple of players short of being top 6.

Too much pessimism - we set out to let them have the ball then frustrate, so of course they looked like the were making all their passes. Facts are that we scored to take the lead and only an 11th hour own goal rescued a point for them. I honestly see this as 2 points lost.

How did Br*ghton not get any bookings? If Wilf swears at the ref like Burn did, or deliberatly handles it because he feels it is a penalty as Lampety did then he would have at least one yellow?

I bumped into a Brighton fan, who I used to work with, at the beginning of December and he was saying how dreadful they had been and that the fans were beginning to get fed up of all the possession Football and no end product.

Potter was under a bit of pressure, at that stage.

We played them at a decent time from our point of view, missing their best player, no Dunk either.

They played us at a good time from their point of view. We really miss McArthur, not to mention the three at AFCON. We could have used Tomkins as that last sub but he wasn't about, hindsight may show that Kelly was a better call for our final change. Or even Clyne with Ward at DM or CB.


Olise and Eze are still learning. 120mins for Ebz and 180mins for Michael in intimidating derby atmospheres has worked a treat. We were poor last night but still grabbed the point. We really have to learn how to preserve leads away from home, how to start matches well and we are doing it all without Kouyate, Tomkins, often Benteke, Zaha, Ayew, McArthur and often Luka's caps on the pitch.

As for Ramsey, not sure that he is the answer - perhaps just a loan until June. We need a proper holding mid. Ramsey is another connector and too much like Hughes, Macca or even Conor. Kouyate is the only premier standard one we have. Luka needs to get his form back quickly, I hope he does it after a tought time but the club and fans have been very, very patient with him.

Br*ghton are a decent team but not invincible. Potter and co are a season or two ahead of us in the transformation from relegation battlers/mid-table to an upper half team. Our progress seems a lot more rapid at the moment.

The ref didn't help but we showed them too much respect. With that said in the second half, they didn't look like scoring until we did it for them.

Looking at the positives, own goal aside, our centre halves actually defended properly

Patrick still hasnt learnt that Eze is not a winger and how to integrate him in the team. Still he may have found out that Schlup is best wide left . Patrick left ward exposed on the right when he brought on benteke , ultimately cost us

A draw was about right. Thought we played for a point. If midfield had been shored up ( CK, Luka,Jimmy) weíd have seen different tactics from Patrick. He gets the need to not lose this one. That is really good imo. He knew we would be on the back foot and organized accordingly. PV understands Palace, thatís my big takeaway from the last two matches. Liverpool will see different tactics again. Who knows what weíll see then? Weíll be competing, thatís for sure.

Yes, as is Edouard. 3 young players who have not played together much (first time all 3 have started?), getting used to the league, one only a couple of games back from a serious injury and lacking match fitness. We all know their potential and our patience will be rewarded in time. Brighton have a settled side, I think theyíve almost reached their ceiling and they still canít beat us.

Brighton are a good side as much as I hate to admit it. Last night we were lightweight in midfield and could not get a grip on the game. We knew that before the game however so it was a credit to the defence that we held out for so long. Oh could we have done with Viera at his peak on the pitch. A good result.

We had an off day and still drew and we are missing some big players at the moment. 4 guaranteed starters and not having Tomkins to bring on didn’t help.
I agree with what others have said, if you going to sit why start Edouard through the middle. He’s been playing well when we have been pressing from the front but we were desperate for a big man up top tonight, made him sense.
I like Schlupp but never in a midfield three again. That was the main reason we got overwhelmed in there tonight. Luka should have started and can hopefully play himself back into form. We need Jimmy back desperately.
Brighton are a decent team but have scored many late late goals to be where they are, that won’t continue for ever. Potter is clearly a good tactician but they lack some quality for me. Didn’t create as many clear chances than we did against them at home, especially after we gave them the midfield.
Two bad performances in a row and we didn’t lose, and hopefully PV will learn that the midfield tonight doesn’t work.
We are going through a bit of a lull performance wise but I think we’ll come good again, especially when we have some players back. We’ve also been a little unlucky with how our Covid absentees happened, the timing of losing important players separately.
They still can’t beat us when we play our worst!!

We were poor last night , midfield and going forward in particular . Highlights the squads lack of depth we need a couple of midfielders to improve on Luka who is best in deep block only and jairo.

Clearly a Brighton fan but I will reply.

We outplayed them at Selhurst and should have got all 3 points. They outplayed us last night and probably should have got 3 points. Thatís football. Theyíre a decent side but so are we. We just didnít perform last night. Not surprising when we have 4 key players unavailable.
