Brighton & Hove Albion Squad 2018/19 – First Team 2018/19
Brighton & Hove Albion squad – new players in and out 2018/19. Here is the Brighton & Hove Albion FC Squad 2018/19 (First Team).
Brighton & Hove Albion have been improving their squad last summer ahead of the 2018/19 season. It was a very busy summer for the Seagulls, manager Chris Hughton after spending over £36 million on new players. However, they made only three signings in the January transfer window to add more strength to their squad for the rest of the season.
Albion finished second in the Championship in 2016/17, losing out on the title on the last day as an injury-time goal from Jack Grealish saw them drop points to Aston Villa and hand first place to Newcastle United.
However, they enjoyed an excellent year still and are deservedly now at the top level. In Hughton, they have one of England’s most positive managers and attractive brand of football that should win many admirers this season. They have plenty of quality too with players such as Anthony Knockaert, Lewis Dunk and World Cup star Jose Izquierdo.
Brighton play at the Amex Stadium, moving in 2011 from their former home the Withdean. The place will be packed out week in week out this season as they host Premier League football for the second time. The question now is can they maintain their top flight status and establish themselves among the country’s elite for years to come?
Brighton & Hove Albion Squad 2018/19
We take a look at the Seagulls’ squad below. The Brighton & Hove Albion squad line up 2018/19 season will consist of these players.
Brighton & Hove Albion FC Goalkeepers 2018
- Mathew Ryan
- Jason Steele
- David Button
Brighton and Hove Albion brought in two experienced stoppers over the summer, with two English goalkeepers coming in- Jason Steele and David Button. It looks as if Matthew Ryan will be the first choice goalkeeper this season after a fine debut season in the Premier League last season.
Brighton & Hove Albion squad Defenders 2018/2019
- Bruno Saltor
- Gaeten Bong
- Lewis Dunk
- Shane Duffy
- Markus Suttner
- Leon Balogun
- Martin Montoya
It was Brighton’s defence that played a real key part in their promotion last season. Captain Bruno Saltor is a cult hero amongst fans and has top-level experience in Spain with Valencia, whereas the likes of Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy excelled in the Championship for a number of years. In summer 2018, Brighton signed Brazilian full-back Bernardo and Nigerian Super Eagles centre-back Leon Balogun. They also brought in a quality right back in Martin Montoya who has been giving the veteran Bruno healthy competition this season.
Brighton & Hove Albion FC Midfielders
- Dale Stephens
- Beram Kayal
- Max Sanders
- Anthony Knockaert
- Pascal Gross
- Solomon March
- Davy Propper
- Yves Bissouma
In midfield, Brighton are not short of good players. French playmaker Anthony Knockaert was instrumental in their promotion campaign with 15 goals and is the star man for Chris Hughton’s side. Dutch international Davy Propper had an excellent first season in the Premier League for Brighton last season. Meanwhile, Brighton signed Yves Bissouma from LOSC Lille for a club record fee of £17 million. They have also brought in Max Sanders from their Reserve side to add depth to their squad.
Brighton & Hove Albion FC Forwards
- Glenn Murray
- Jose Izquierdo
- Jurgen Locadia
- Florin Andone
- Alireza Jahanbakhsh
The form of strike pairing Tomer Hemed and Glenn Murray played a big part in Brighton’s promotion in 2016-17. However, with Hemed now plying his trade for Queens Park Rangers in the Championship on loan, Murray is having to shoulder the responsibility of scoring the goals for the Seagulls and he is doing a good job. In Jose Izquierdo, they have another exciting option, the Colombian joining for a club record fee during the summer transfer window 2017 from Belgian side Brugge. In summer 2018, Brighton signed Florin Andone for £5.25 million. The Seagulls have also brought in young Viktor Gyokeres from the U23 side to increase squad depth in the attacking department.
