Albion player of the season Shane Duffy is ready for more backs-to-the-wall defending at Arsenal today.

The Irishman and partner Lewis Dunk were outstanding when the Seagulls suffered a late 1-0 defeat at Arsenal's North London neighbours Spurs in their previous away game.

Duffy said of the Alamo-style defiance: "It's all I'm good at! I'm joking, but I said to Dunky afterwards ‘Did you love it?’ And he said ‘I loved it.’ It’s not that we wanted to play like that but as a centre half you want to be tested and we were.

"We had top-class players against us but on the day Dunky was an absolute monster. As long as we make it difficult for them (Arsenal) and play hard, that’s the thing.

"Listen, we’re centre halves, we're ugly and we don’t get all the plaudits of a Glenn Murray but at the end of the day I'm a defender and I'll never change the way I am."
