Jonathan Pearce: "Living 10 minutes away from the Amex Stadium, I've witnessed at close hand the Sussex buzz since promotion".

Bernardo was part of the Monaco side that knocked City out of the Champions League at the last-16 phase of last season's competition.

Anthony Knockaert was directly involved in more league goals than any other Championship midfielder in 2016-17, with 15 goals and eight assists.

"I don't [think] there's extra pressure on me", he said.

While the former Tottenham Hotspur man may not, intrinsically, appear worth the £50 million that last season's Premier League runners-up were only too happy to accept, the Premier League has once again redefined the market values of European football.

"The teams that arrive, in the first four, five, six games they are so complicated". The Argentine has scored against 29 of the other 30 clubs he's played against, only failing to score versus Bolton Wanderers. It's a first time in the Premier League for Brighton and Huddersfield.
