Bruno is convinced Albion could have caused an upset – if they had taken a second half chance.

The Seagulls had a flurry of pressure in the second half of their 2-0 defeat by Manchester City.

Sergio Aguero and a Lewis Dunk own goal, inside a six-minute period in the final quarter sent them spinning to defeat.

In a hectic period early in the second half, Shane Duffy shot narrowly wide, Lewis Dunk had a couple of efforts blocked and Davy Propper's header deflected on to the top of the net.

Seagulls skipper Bruno said: “We knew how tough it was going to be but I thought we had good moments in the game – and we had our chances.

“Football is about small details. If we had scored a goal when we had a few chances in the second half, it would have changed the game.

“After a couple of mistakes and they score. That’s football.”

Bruno said he was not affected by the nervous tension around the city He added: “I tried to keep focus in my job, approach the game the same way.

“That is how we need to manage things.

“We know for the fans and the club it is a really big thing to be in the Premier League.

“It was a party but we need to keep focus on our jobs.

“We had to do the same thing – and with our moment, we score a goal.”
