Albion maintained their unbeaten run at Norwich - with far tougher tests to come next.

The Seagulls drew 0-0 at Carrow Road and are fourth in the Premier League.

Next up come Manchester City at the Amex, followed by a trip to Liverpool.

We asked four long-time fans for their thoughts on the Norwich game.

Then we sought opinions as to whether there is an immediate route back into the side for Adam Webster, if fit and ready, after this fourth clean sheet of the season.

What were your thoughts on Albion’s performance at Norwich?

Tim Ayling: We weren’t at our best, especially in midfield, and a point is a decent return given that. The Lallana/Gross midfield doesn’t seem to be firing at the moment, even with Moder in there too. The penalty decision was never going to be overturned by VAR - just not clear enough in real-time. All in all, a point away from home is good in any Premier League game, even against the bottom team.

Colin Beales: A great away day at Norwich spoilt by 90 minutes of dull football. On another day we could have won it but equally Norwich had some great chances to take all the spoils. Guess I should be happy with the point.

James Heasman: Overall, I felt Brighton played some good football particularly in the first half, but seemed to lose their way a little in the second. The referee will be very disappointed when he sees Maupay’s penalty incident. I honestly do not understand why this wasn’t overturned and once again it brings the point of VAR into question.

Alan Brownings: A good performance. We started well and had the better of exchanges in the first 40 minutes, despite our best efforts to give Norwich a goal in the final five of the half, we probably deserved to lead. The second half was more even, and the odd choice of March for Cucurella instead of dropping Moder back for Burn and bringing on Bissouma, seemed to drain us of any remaining appetite we might have had.

Who was your pick of the Albion players?

Tim Ayling: Burn, Dunk and Duffy clearly our best players, and they had to be. Given two of those wouldn’t have been named in our first choice back three pre-season, it’s impressive to see them performing so well.

Colin Beales: If you make me pick I’m going to go with Dan Burn for a few crucial tackles.

James Heasman: Nobody really stood out, Trossard and Moder started well but Dan Burn made a couple of outstanding challenges, so I would probably give it to him.

Alan Brownings: Trossard had another good game and was unlucky not to score. I thought Moder had a good game too.

Does Graham Potter face a big decision at the back if Adam Webster is fit to face Man City?

Tim Ayling: It’s Burn or Webster. The issue is that Webster is usually a slow starter when returning from injury and Man City aren’t the team to allow that to happen. Burn will more than likely retain his spot.

Colin Beales: Webster is now our best defender. If he’s fit, he plays.

James Heasman: Given City’s strength is good movement, I think it would be sensible to play Webster at the expense of Duffy, as he is faster and reads the game a little better. I would also start Lamptey as, given the speed of Foden, we will need to ensure we match up well.


Alan Brownings: It should be a pretty straightforward decision based upon Dan Burn’s overall performance on Saturday. While he saved us just before half-time, he seems to be constantly exposed and gives the ball away too easily in dangerous positions too often for my liking. Webster in for me if fit.
