MAN of the moment Alireza Jahanbakhsh has been told he is getting better all the time The Iran international conjured a fabulous overhead bicycle kick to secure the Seagulls’ first ever point against Chelsea.

Jahanbakhsh followed his first Premier League goal against Bournemouth on Saturday by securing a 1-1 draw at the Amex in stunning style.

He had not previously featured in the Premier League under Graham Potter.

Now the head coach has revealed how he has seen Jahanbakhsh improve in training sessions this season even while out of the side.

Potter said: “When you come to a club and you have got this price tag (£17 million) and you want things to go well, sometimes you want to try and do too much, force that goal too much.

“He has improved. His ball retention and decision-making are better.

“Then it is about playing to his strengths, maybe a bit wider and higher so he can affect the goal because he has got that knack of scoring.”

Jahanbakhsh was cheered off by fans and Potter said: “The credit must go to Ali.

“It’s not just that it hasn’t happened for him with me. He was here last year and didn’t contribute as much as he would like to the team or to the scoreline.

“For him to carry on and not get too frustrated to the point where you can’t be yourself has taken a lot.

“He has just focused on the training, focused on working hard, doing the things we have been asking him to do.”

Asked whether Jahanbakhsh tries such overhead kicks in training, Potter said: “I can’t say I have seen too many of those! But it was wonderful execution.”

Potter labelled his team’s display as they cancelled out Cesar Azpilicueta’s early goal as “incredible” and added: “The level of courage from the players was amazing.”
