NEAL MAUPAY said he never had any doubt he would get back in the goals for Albion after netting in the draw against Sheffield United.

Seagulls’ top scorer Maupay had gone 631 minutes without a Premier League goal and had failed to net with his previous 21 shots.

But the Frenchman marked his first start since the defeat to Bournemouth at the end of January by scoring the 30th-minute equaliser when he nodded home after Aaron Mooy’s free-kick was headed down by Adam Webster.

It was the striker’s eighth in his debut season in the Prem - and a welcome relief.

He said: “For me it is a big bonus because I haven’t scored in a few games and the last two games I was on the bench as well.

“It was a really hard time for me as I know I can do better but I have this confidence in me and my game.

“I know I am a goalscorer and I know I will score goals.

“Even the top strikers in the world who play in the Champions League sometimes they go through struggles.

“For me there was nothing to worry about.

“I just keep working and kept believing in myself.

“I have got a manager who believes in me, my team-mates believe in me, and that gives me confidence.”
