We asked these Albion fans for their thoughts on the win over Leeds.

We also canvassed some opinion on the role being played by Danny Welbeck - and whether he will stay beyond this season.

What were your thoughts on Albion’s performance?

Colin Beales: We’re best set-up to play teams who attack us like Leeds.That was certainly true in this game too, more than matching Leeds energy and had some quality play. We should have scored one or two more, but it wouldn’t be Brighton these days without a sitter being missed.

Tim Ayling: Just the reaction we wanted. Completely stress-free and thoroughly deserved victory.


James Heasman: This was a very professional display by Brighton. They made Leeds look ordinary and a four or five-goal margin would have been a more accurate reflection. Credit to Graham Potter, who set the team up perfectly.

Who was your pick of the Albion players?

Colin Beales: The headlines will all be about Welbeck for earning the penalty and the awesome turn for his goal, but my pick was Dan Burn who I though was key defensively and put in some decent offensive moves that could have given us more rewards.

Tim Ayling: Difficult, yet for the opposite reason to last week. Dunk, White, Bissouma, Welbeck and Veltman especially good.

James Heasman: Bissouma was outstanding, as were Welbeck and Gross to a lesser extent, but Lewis Dunk showed why he is the best central defender in the country, great use of the ball and calm throughout. It is quite mystifying as to why he is not an England regular.

Has Welbeck added more than you expected – and how important is to keep him for next season?

Colin Beales: I don’t think Danny has exceeded my expectations as we know players like him and Lallana have quality but we have to keep them fit and playing. That said, I’d like to see him sign again he definitely adds something to the team.

Tim Ayling: I expected very little so yes. That role on the left seems to suit him well. I hope we keep him but let’s not overplay his importance. Good player, I would like him next season, but my son won’t cry if he doesn’t stay!

James Heasman: Welbeck is a very good player and there was never any doubt from an ability perspective. Unfortunately injuries in the latter part of his career have proved problematic, and it may come down to wages in the end. I would hope the club targets forwards in the summer, as we need to improve in this area. Hopefully Welbeck will stay, but I’m not sure he will.
