It promised to be a baptism of fire as they travelled to the Etihad. They played away to an in-form Manchester City at their own stadium.
However, Brighton showed no fear as they limited Manchester City to very few clear-cut chances in the game. Their bright spark was the performance of Percy Tau.
The South African was mesmeric in the first half. Littered with quality touches, passes, runs and dribbles.
None more so than after Tau drifted past defender Oleksandr Zinchenko and made him fall! He was a very influential figure for Brighton and Hove Albion in the game.
South Africans were extremely proud of his performance. They were also left frustrated when he was substituted for Neal Maupay after the hour mark.
People felt that Frenchman Leandro Trossard should’ve been taken off, not Percy Tau. However, if his debut is anything to go by, he is set to play a pivotal role for Brighton this season.
