Graham Potter said a moment of quality – and weeks of hard work – helped his side to a precious win.

Leandro Trossard turned home a precise Aaron Mooy cross to give Albion a precious 1-0 win at Norwich.

They had to be disciplined and organised around impressive skipper Lewis Dunk – and defend well when Norwich belatedly sent on their subs.

But Trossard’s first away goal in the Premier League settled the issue.

Head coach Potter said: "A moment of quality changed the match.


Trossard sweeps home!

Brighton get the turnover in midfield and punish Norwich in full! The Belgian caps a great move 👊

Trouble for the Canaries.

“The resilience, the ability to stick at it that has been evident for us since the lockdown.

"At this stage of the season, where we're at, three points is the most important."

Onel Hernandez offered most threat to Albion until the closing stages.

The visitors did not make the most of some good situations from which to threaten their former goalkeeper Tim Krul.

But Trossard left him with no chance on 25 minutes as his deft first-touch finish guided Mooy’s low cross inside the far post.

Yves Bissouma started the move by picking off a loose pass and laying the ball off to Neal Maupay, who sent Mooy racing away down the right.

Mooy almost turned creator again in the second half but Dan Burn turned his terrific free-kick wide from close range.

Potter’s shrewd use of his defensive substitutes ensured potential Norwich dangermen Teemu Pukki and todd Cantwell had little impact after going on for the final push.



But fellow sub Adam Idah was inches from an injury-time equaliser as his glancing header came back off the inside of the post before Burn cleared.
