FULL TIME: 7:55pm: Whistle blows. Good half for Brighton, positive ending for Norwich’s attack. My man of the match is Leandro Trossard. I thought about this as Lewis Dunk has played well today too. Leandro Trossard got a goal and an assist. He won Brighton the match when he came on. Next game for Brighton is against United and Norwich play Watford.
