Bruno has targeted the festive prize of a first point off one of the Premier League elite.

But he knows Albion will have to be more clinical than in recent games if they are to take some reward from their Boxing Day trip to Chelsea.

The skipper was delighted with how his side performed in back-to-back home fixtures against Burnley and Watford, which brought four points and two clean sheets.

But they night need to grab their chances more hungrily if they are to profit at Chelsea.

Bruno told The Argus: “Chelsea are a great team with great players.

"They are not in their best moment but it will be a really hard game.

“We see it as a challenge and look forward to it. We have real desire to get something there.

“We want to get a point against one of the giants.

“They are extra points, which people don’t expect us to get, but, at the end of the season, they could make a difference.”

Albion were unable to find a killer touch at Manchester United in one of their best performances of the season.

Solly March hit the inside of the post when they were 1-0 down at Arsenal and Tomer Hemed blasted straight at the keeper at a key stage of their 2-0 defeat at Tottenham.

Shane Duffy was inches from scoring at a corner in the 2-0 opening-day defeat to Manchester City when the scoresheet was still blank.

Even when hammered 5-1 by Liverpool, Albion had a chance at 0-0 and again to get back into the contest at 3-1 down.

That was the only time the Seagulls have been put to the sword as Liverpool’s attacking players ran riot.

Bruno said: “We have put up a good show in almost all our games against top teams.

“We have to make the most of chances we know we will get.

“You always get one or two chances. The difference is converting them.”

Albion were not at their most clinical against Watford but Bruno was convinced they deserved their win.

He said: “It’s a really good win and we needed it.

“The team played really well from first minute to last.

“We deserved to go 2-0 or 3-0 up in the first 20 minutes.

“That was a shame but that’s the only thing we have to improve, the end product.

“We had the same against Burnley when we had chances to go 1-0 up and calm things down.

“It has happened in other games so there are always things to improve on.”
