There is a detail that not everyone realizes: Brighton has only lost 4 matches after 21 rounds played in the Premier League this season, just more than the Top 3 leading the rankings (Man City, Chelsea and Liverpool). In return, the team nicknamed Seagulls drew 11 matches (the most in the tournament).
Anyway, for a club that is only in the average category of the tournament, the achievement of 29 points and 9th place in the rankings and 8 points behind the Top 5 (definitely participating in European Cups) is clearly too good. It should be recalled that last season, Brighton only finished 16th and were lucky enough to successfully stay relegated.
Now, teachers and Coach Potter are considered to have continued to stay in the top division of the foggy country even though the season has just passed half of the way (for many years, the “recipe” for a team not to be afraid of relegation is to touch 40 points and Brighton is only 11 points behind that mark – PV). They even have the right to dream of a “higher” position (entering the group to attend the European Cup).
Brighton’s competitive spirit is very good right now after forcing title candidate Chelsea to split points. In total, Brighton was unbeaten in 6 consecutive matches (won 2). At this time, Brighton is really a big challenge for Leicester, the team has always been in an unstable state from the beginning of the 2021/22 season until now.
In the middle of last week, the “fox” seemed to have defeated Tottenham, but within the last 2 minutes of injury time (90+5 and 90+7), Leicester had been conceded twice, so they had to hate. with a bitter defeat of 2-3 right at the King Power nest. Thus, in the last 5 rounds in the Premier League, coach Rodgers’ team lost to 3 and dropped to 11th, which is still below Brighton (4 points less) despite playing 2 games less.
