Brighton failed to find the back of the net for the sixth time in a row as they produced one of the goalless football scores of the weekend in the Premier League. Brighton had 31 shots but managed to work Tim Krul just four times. It is the most shots a team has had in a match in the league this season. The main action of the game came when Neal Maupay fired his penalty over the crossbar.

Managers Reaction 

Brighton boss Graham Potter: “We’re frustrated we didn’t score but there were lots of positives in terms of our intention in the game. We were the dominant team and created chances. It’s a step in the right direction. I thought the crowd appreciated the performance – it was a good day but a frustrating day. I hope he doesn’t mind me saying this but better players than Neal will miss penalties. That’s the game. It does show the strength of character to take them and sometimes you miss them but you bounce back. Today wasn’t his day but he’ll have a day in him – that’s for sure.”

Norwich boss Dean Smith: “When we finally put some passing moves together and showed what we could do, unfortunately on the back of two goals for his country, Milot [Rashica] puts it over the crossbar. It wasn’t a great game, I didn’t think. I thought there were an awful lot of unforced errors. We are a group of players who are good footballers, but they are making some poor decisions at the moment on the ball.”
