Brighton vs Fulham match review

on

Brighton will rue their missed chances against Fulham at The Amex after drawing 2-2. However, they will pleased after going two nil down to come back and rescue a much-needed point.

The Seagulls were straight out the block and all over Fulham and had the first chance to take the lead in the 24th minute. Pascal Gross played the ball to Glenn Murray just inside the box and Luciano Vietto failed inside the box.

Gross stepped up and took it, but Marcus Bettinelli got down to his right to pull the ball out of the bottom left corner of the goal.

Just before half time Fulham put their only effort on target in the half in the back of the net. Jean Michael Seri played a lovely through ball which found its way to on-loan winger Andre Schurrle, who then slotted his effort into the bottom left corner. 

Brighton then found themselves 2-0 down in the 63rd minute, when Lewis Dunk slipped and let in Aleksandar Mitrovic, who then had his first effort saved by Matthew Ryan, but then tucked away the rebound. 

In the 67th minute, the Seagulls pulled one back as Anthony Knockaert picked up a loose ball and ran at the defence before squaring the ball to Murray, who then put his effort into the bottom left corner. 

Then with seven minutes left Mitrovic handled inside his own box and Murray stepped up and slotted an effort into the bottom left corner of the goal to level.Brighton line-up

Brighton will rue their missed chances

The Seagulls had plenty of good chances to score more, however they did not make the most of them. The biggest one was Gross’s penalty, which he never looked like he wanted to take let alone score. 

Solly March had a great chance three minutes into the second half when he played in by Davy Propper and he put his effort over well over the bar. 

Brighton could have scored two or three more on another day if their finishing has just been that little more clinical.

 Murray put in a great performance

Murray put in a great performance today. He earnt the first penalty thanks to a great spin inside the box. He then had a glancing header from the corner following the penalty that went across the face of goal. 

Then in the second half, he converted an effort to make it 2-1 after peeling off at the back stick to make space for the shot. Then with seven minutes left he added his second of the game to secure a point.
