Brighton manager Chris Hughton has blamed the quality of the Premier League as the main reason for the poor performance of his side in recent times. The Seagulls have won none of their last seven matches in the top tier and faced a 1-3 defeat in their last outing against Burnley at the Amex Stadium.
Speaking to the media after the match, the English gaffer said, “We don’t want to speak that way [about a relegation battle] but we are a level of club that is going to have ups and downs. People said we were comfortable in the league but we never felt that. Everything is not going to be smooth for us. We know how difficult this league is and the quality their are teams below us who can all win games. This is a time to make sure that we are aware of that and we need to get points. That will be no different to any other stage of the season.”
He added, “The last two homes games were a really good performance. Last time out, here, against Watford, we came up against a very good goalkeeper and again we haven’t managed to sure despite getting into some very good positions. “We need to be better in front of goal. We need goals from our forward and contributions from elsewhere as otherwise, like today, you leave yourself vulnerable.”
