Brighton took home a victory against Huddersfield 1-0 last Saturday. The former FA technical director, currently in the same role at AMEX, expressed his sentiments on their potential place in Europe. It may still seem like a distant possibility but there is definitely still a chance there.
However, Chris Hughton’s team’s top priority is to remain at the Premier League and generate more wins since their 1-0 victory is just their first win of the year. There’s certainly a long term goal in the unforeseeable future to join the FA Cup which would just be a perk in their line of attempts to perform well in the league
The Brighton coach is not taking it slow after just one win, Hughton is keen on taking the necessary steps to invigorate his team for the next few games. His players have also been particular with their execution on the field, with Florin Andone scoring a goal, along with Alireza Jahanbakhsh who gave Andone the final nudge before Yves Bissouma executing a winning goal.
“With Alireza, he is now back from the Asian Cup, he’s been with us for a while and he’s a player we value. We bought him for big money and I thought it was another good opportunity for him. I’m hoping we’re going to see more (from Jahanbakhsh) because he’s a goalscorer.” Houghton adds.
