Brighton were already surprising the Premier League with Graham Potter, but Roberto De Zerbi turned them into a machine to produce beautiful football. The Italian coach’s Seagulls again managed a collective and offensive demonstration this Saturday afternoon against Wolverhampton, which was shattered (6-0).
While he had never scored with Brighton since his arrival from Union Saint-Gilloise, German striker Deniz Undav scored twice (6th, 66th) and freed himself from this pressure. His teammates Pascal Gross (13th, 26th) and Danny Welbeck (39th, 48th) followed suit.
The Seagulls are now 8th in the Premier League with 52 points in 31 days, already two more than at the end of last season. Above all, they are only one unit away from Liverpool (7th), who have played one more match, and two lengths from Aston Villa (6th) and Tottenham (5th), who already have 33 Championship games. With two matches in a row to come at home against Manchester United (May 4) and Everton (May 8), Brighton can dream of Europe, and not just the Europa League Conference…
Brentford overthrow Forest
In the other match of the afternoon, Nottingham Forest (17th) believed for a long time to do the right operation of the day in the race to maintain. Keylor Navas’ teammates led 1-0 on the Brentford lawn thanks to Danilo (45th), but Toney (82nd) then Dasilva (90th + 4) came to destroy their hopes at the end of the game. Steve Cooper’s men are only one point ahead of Leicester, the first to relegate.
