Ansu was able to prove that it is complicated to be the undisputed owner here Brighton so attractive, and the competition in front of us is really tough. However, the multitude of games that the island team has to play – including the Europa League – means that there are a few minutes Ansu who can find a permanent place in the team due to his talent and versatility.
In front of him United He played inside, behind the striker, and all indications are that he will play that role for most of the season.

Exactly the former WatfordEdit He will be his main competition in midfield behind the striker. The Seagulls’ most expensive new signing this summer has landed on its feet in the plan From Zerbi and he has already scored two goals in five games. Also Adam Lallanaan experienced footballer who played 270 duels during the season premier, will be important this year. We must not forget Julio Enciso.

The big question will be his adaptation to the hardness of the Premier League, as well as that his physical condition allows him to exploit his range of offensive resources, of which there are quite a few. Watch him form forward Mitomes, march And Evan Ferguson It’s a stimulating scenario to say the least. Will it happen next Thursday, in the “Seagulls” debut in the Europa League against AEK Athens?
