Brighton v Fulham player ratings
Albion fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Fulham in the Premier League this afternoon.
Glenn Murray starred for the Seagulls with both goals, after Andre Schurrle and Aleksandar Mitrovic had given the visitors a two-goal lead.
Here's how we rated the players of both teams:
Mathew Ryan - 7
Important late save to Ryan Sessegnon. Saved Mitrovic's first effort for Fulham's second goal but could not do anything with the rebound.
Martin Montoya - 7
Solid defending in the first half and blocked a lot of crosses. Over-lapped down the right when he could and fired a late volley wide.
Shane Duffy - 6
Some strong headed clearances. Had his hands full with Mitrovic.
Lewis Dunk - 6
Uncharacteristic mistake led to Mitrovic doubling Fulham’s lead. Did well to win possession back on several occasions.
Gaetan Bong - 7
Worked well down the left flank with Solly March. His crosses were well defended by the away side.
Anthony Knockaert - 7
Worked well down the right-hand side. Laid the ball off to Murray, who won the first penalty. Traditional jinking run before playing in Murray for the Seagulls' first goal.
Dale Stephens - 6
Spread the play well to find Albion’s wingers. Booked for a foul on the stroke of half-time.
Davy Propper - 6
Booked early in the second half after chasing down Denis Odoi. Set March on his way but the winger skied his shot after being put clean through.
Solly March - 7
Almost weaved his way through the Fulham defence in the first half. Missed a one-on-one ten minutes into the second half, blazing a golden chance over. Always a threat.
Pascal Gross - 6
Required treatment on his ankle in the first half. Missed a first half penalty after Marcus Bettinelli dived to his right to push the ball past the post. Subbed on the hour.
Glenn Murray - 9
Won penalty in the first half but Gross’s spot kick was saved. Gave Albion a lifeline when he swiped home Knockaert’s pass. Equalised from the spot with a thumping strike into the top left-hand corner.
Yves Bissouma -7
Did well to connect defence to attack at times.
Jurgen Locadia -6
Sent on late on, a pacy threat but was caught offside when he got behind the Fulham defence.Alireza Jahanbakhsh - 6
Won possession to stop a Fulham attack late on but did not have much joy going forward.
Unused subs: David Button, Beram Kayal, Leon Balogun, Bernardo.
Marcus Bettinelli - 8
Saved Gross’s penalty when he dived to his right-hand side and turned the ball round the post. Also caught several crosses into the penalty area.
Timothy Fosu-Mensah - 6
Had his work cut out with March and Bong doing well down his side.
Alfie Mawson - 6
Premier League debut for Fulham. Good battle with Murray.
Denis Odoi - 7
Strong run through the middle of the pitch resulted in the defender winning a free kick.
Maxime Le Marchland - 7
Did well to contain Knockaert in the first half.
Kevin McDonald - 6
Fired a shot over the bar in the second half after being given time and space.
Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa - 6
Looked lively before being subbed in the second half.
Jean Michael Seri - 7
Summer signings looks an excellent player. Flicked a through ball into the path of Schurrle who tucked it away to give the visitors the lead just before half-time.
Luciano Vietto - 6
One nice run in the first half. Fouled Murray in the box to concede the first penalty.
Aleksandar Mitrovic - 8
Headed early chance over. Capitalised on Dunk’s mistake and fired home at the second attempt after Ryan made a save. Conceded penalty for handball late in the second half.
Andre Schurrle - 8
Gave Fulham the lead just before the break with a tidy finish past Ryan. Looked bright in the first half.
Ryan Sessegnon - 7
Lively. Late shot saved by Ryan after weaving run.
Calum Chambers - 6
Brought on as a defensive tactic to hold Fulham’s lead, not involved with the equaliser though.
Stefan Johansen - 6
Booked after late introduction.
Unused: Fabri, Cyrus Christie, Joe Bryan, Aboubakar Kamara.
