Brighton manager Chris Hughton has moved to quell whispers about winger Anthony Knockaert's slow start in the Premier League this season.
Knockaert was Championship Player of the Season as Brighton won promotion last term, scoring 15 times and assisting on 8 occasions from midfield. This season, he been unable to get that finished product, perhaps struggling to adapt to faster and better defences in the Premier League. He was substituted last weekend as the Seagulls beat Newcastle, meaning he has completed 90 minutes just once this term in the league. Hughton stressed that Knockaert is "fine", and praised the winger's contribution to the side's overall play. It was also pointed out the Knockaert may still be feeling the effects of a disrupted pre-season in which he missed a month. Knockaert is expected to keep his starting role for the visit to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. Sep 27 - 11:36 AM
