Roberto De Zerbi says Albion will not be “a top team” until they win games they dominate.

The Seagulls boss said he was “disappointed and frustrated with a 1-1 draw at home to Burnley.

They had to come from behind to level through Simon Adingra but had numerous good chances to secure the win.

De Zerbi liked the match to those at home to Fulham and Sheffield United, which also ended in 1-1 draws.

He is concerned those dropped points could cost his side another European qualification.

De Zerbi said: “I consider my team a very good team. I have a big, big confidence.

“I think there is no one who believes in my players more than me.

“We are a very good team but we are not a top team yet.

“A top team won today, won with Sheffield, won with Fulham.

“Winning the three games we would be third place in the table.

“In these three games we played very, very well and better and better than the opponent.

“I think we deserved to win these three games.

“Then the question is why didn’t we win these three games.

“Maybe because we are not a top team yet.

“Maybe the coach of Brighton is not a top coach yet.

“Today we shoot 29 times on goal.

“Against Fulham we suffered six, seven, eight minutes, not more, and we concede a goal from “Palhinha from 23, 25 metres.

“Today we concede a goal from 20 metres.

“We conceded two shots today and Sheffield, 11 against 11, I think was another completely different game.

“I am really disappointed and frustrated and I go home thinking what we need to do more to win the game.

“We want to keep this level, we want to keep our dream.

“Last season no one thought we could reach the Europa League but we reached it.

“This season, with these three wins – Fulham, Sheffield and Burnley – we would be talking about a different position in the table.”
