Pathetic that a professional footballer can't get a penalty on target.

Despite Sterling missing a late penalty, City see it out 1-0, they made heavy weather of that though. Is that 1 win in 16 now for Brighton.

Now it's over to Spurs to do the business, and last night's defeat won't be too damaging.

Cos we always sit back deep playing long balls back out to relieve the obvious pressure we put ourselves under

Brighton play some good, forward passing football

Imagine if they had a Wood or Barnes up front and they would be challenging for Europe ;)

Oddly, Potter decided not to play Maupay from the beginning as they didn't have a regular striker on from the start.

No wonder Brighton are below us in the league with two games more played.

Brighton are below us because Maupay plays most games ;)

Brighton managed 4% more possession against City than we had but only had 5 shots with 1 on target, whereas we managed 9 with 1 on target.
City's finishing tonight was very poor whereas, against us, they only had 3 more shots than tonight and had 6 on target, just as tonight, however, they scored 5 against us. That's football.

Maybe but they still came away with nothing, just as we did.

For all the talk about Brighton playing well, they can't win games, hence why they are trailing behind us having played more games.

Let's hope they continue to 'give teams games' - who needs to be capable of picking up points?

One win in 16 games. But at least they have their dignity.

They're welcome to their dignity, I'd rather be collecting points like we've been doing over the past 10 games.

Eric Dier will never be a half decent CB. Holding midfield is his only position where he helps his side and he’s not close to Hjoberg there.

They are being allowed to by a Spurs side playing like they expected to win, as did City against BHA.
We never get that because opposition managers instil it into them there are no easy games against Burnley.

Fulham create a chance or two and put it away. On current form Wood mistimes that jump and sends the header flying over the bar.

No way that Fulham will go down? They’re 2 points away from being above the drop zone having won just 2 games all season. How can you discount them from being relegation contenders?

Can't see Palace getting dragged in, Newcastle on the other hand are dropping like a stone, and could find themselves in a 4 way battle with us, Brighton & Fulham for that last spot, the bottom 2 can't be totally written off, but it's looking grim for both.

To say Fulham won't go down is a bit odd considering we are almost at the halfway point in the season and they are still in the bottom 3.

You’re in trouble if you keep not winning when you’re playing well. Fulham are playing well and look decent but they don’t know how to win. Same with Brighton.

We’ve won as many as those two combined!

But yes, we have to score more goals, no doubt.

My maxim at present is that we equal or better
the results/points either Fulham, Brighton, West Brom, Sheff Utd. and possibly Newcastle
manage to get and particularly better in our home games against Fulham, Brighton,
West Brom and Newcastle.

From what I've seen of them (especially Fulham and Brighton) then I'd have to say
I'm worried about them. They both play good football, seem up for the fight
and score goals. Defensively we might be a notch better but we all know goals
wins games and we're really struggling to score.

There's still 20/21 games to play so a lot of points at stake but 35 or 36
might just be enough this season.
So looking at it another way 6 more wins and 2/3 draws might be enough.
Let's hope so.

I, too, wondered this tonight. In fact I’d pretty much forgotten they had him. Has he been injured? Thought him, Son and Kane could have been quite some front 3.
