Gonna buck the trend - I felt we picked them open quite regularly, but often played the wrong pass or failed to make the right run having exposed them.
balbuena's won the header - Rice and Yarmy both being fouled, but who is in the Nolan/Ayew position? the ball ran all the way through to Obiang. Brighton are defending exactly the way Burnley do - look at the bodies clustered by the goalline.
Marvellous pick out by Anderson - our best player on the night - great run by Zab's, good block on Arnie - but obiang still gets a free hit from about 15 yards from the rebound but puts it over the bar
Anderson's murdered the full back, but no one's attacking the back post and the goal is wide open.
Anderson has worked a smart free kick to Arnie in space - he drills the ball low to Balbuena at the near post, look at the space at the back, especially the on rushing Yarmolenko
We attempted to cut it back to Antonio - it could have been slid across, and again(just out of shot) another player is arriving unmarked at the back
Noble's slid it across the six yard box, no one has attacked the area...Arnie actually pulled back into the same area as Perez, when a run the other way would be a tap in.
We should have won comfortably; they created very little until we opened up late on and most of their efforts were outside the area.
