BERAM Kayal believes the next big breakthrough for Albion in the Premier League is a result against one of the giants away from the Amex.

The 3-1 defeat at Everton at the weekend continued the Seagulls' struggles on their travels against the elite clubs.

They have lost all eight clashes with the 'Big Six' since promotion and have now been beaten twice at Goodison Park by an Everton side regarded as the best of the rest.

It has been a different story at home, where Albion have beaten Manchester United twice and Arsenal, as well as holding Spurs to a draw last season.

Israeli midfielder Kayal told The Argus: "You could see the difference when we got the first win against the top six last year. Every step takes you forward.

"We beat Manchester United again this season. You've built something and the confidence is still there.

"It is the next step to do it away from home. We've had the belief and the desire. Every game is winnable, we know that, but it's not sometimes just about us.

"When you face these quality teams and players, on a good day you cannot do anything.

"If you catch them on a bad day and you do everything properly, you need a lot of elements together to get that but we are in a good way."

Albion have to wait until the January visit to Manchester United for the next chance to end the sequence as manager Chris Hughton weighs up whether to make changes to the starting line-up for the first time in four games at Cardiff on Saturday (12.30).

Anthony Knockaert, Yves Bissouma and Florin Andone, all used as substitutes at Everton, could come into the reckoning along with Martin Montoya, the 19th man at Goodison Park.

Meanwhile, a report claiming Albion chief executive Paul Barber is favourite to succeed Martin Glenn in the same role at the FA has been dismissed by a club source.
