If that player replaces someone who is doing something wrong throughout the game and is okay then that has to be an improvement surely?

How many games is that now when the opposition has had somebody sent off?  Is it three or four?

Are Grealish McGinn being targeted or are they just very (very) good at drawing fouls?

Trez was fine, he didn't change the game but his energy did stretch the Brighton defence a little bit more than we'd managed earlier in the second half.

We were out passed until they got Mooy sent off. We were giving them acres in midfield and no pressing. They could pass it out from the back and that bloke with the beard for them had about 10 yards all round him to receive the ball - madness. Wesley seemed to have one of his tantrum games - didn't get much of a sniff, but didn't make their defence work. When Davies came on he did more with the ball in 20 mins than Wes' 70. I think Wes still needs to start against Man City as they might play 2 midfielders at centre back again.

Decent win and VAR is being run by morons. Brighton I was very impressed with the passing - if they had a decent striker they would be a real threat.

I thought that Brighton were the best of the 5 teams we've played at home in the league so far this season. Their passing and movement was excellent although it was surprising that we didn't press them from the front and they were able to play through us too easily as a result.

Still, we kept at it and that last minute goal is huge for us with a really tough 3 games coming up.

11 points from the first 9 games is a decent return and we've shown that we can compete at this level. No-one has outplayed us.

What is really great though is the number of players that I actively look forward to watching every week. Grealish, McGinn, Mings in particular have been a revelation.

Good times.

I like his energy. I still think he'll be a star for us, maybe playing off the main striker?

We certainly haven't seem the best of him yet while playing on the wing so I wouldn't rule that out. Might be a decent shout if Wesley's hold-up play doesn't improve (soon) within the current system

Trezeguet has got more skill and control than El Ghazi, but not nearly as much attacking intent, and at this stage, he has zero eye for goal.

Couldn't disagree more Risso.

Trez is completely one sided and as a result much easier to defend against . Puts a shift in but I haven't seen much quality from him so far, maybe the assist for McGinn aside I don't remember another one?

For all his faults, AEG has pace, two good feet and a fine shot on him. Still has a decent haul of goals and assists already plus was key to the red at Arsenal. Biggest problem is his poor workrate without the ball. I've been disappointed with him so far this season as I thought he would thrive at a higher level.

So not really disagreeing at all then?

On the point of skill and control, yeah I am

I saw the highlights and I still don't know why our goal was disallowed. No way is that a clear and obvious foul. And coaches should be able to challenge, like in NFL. That way we could have challenged the ludicrous free kick that they scored from.

Wesley's arm was raised when he jumped, even though it did not impede the keeper the stupid VAR official was always going to disallow!

Really don't think it's fair to be judging Trezeguet on the basis of what we've seen so far. He's only had 5 starts with us and has yet to play an entire match. In his last 3 games, he's played less than 30 minutes in every single one. Red card aside I've not been overly disappointed with him yet, I felt he did fine on Saturday and I'll reserve judgement until he's been given a proper chance again.

It seems most would agree that at least 3 of our players (AEG, McGinn & Wesley) had off days and yet we still managed a win against a well drilled Brighton side, when all 11 are on their game we are unplayable.
