Brighton will play top tier football next season, for the first time in 34 years and may just take a few established Premier League teams by surprise.
As is the nature of football, plenty will already be aware of the attacking flair of Anthony Knockaert and the prowess of Glenn Murray up front. Their seemingly title-winning efforts this season though have been the result of great teamwork.
Brighton have a great spine and two central players who stand out and will do well at a higher level are:
The 25-year-old has stayed loyal to Brighton, having been the subject of various overtures from clubs at the top level. His patience and loyalty have now been rewarded and he will be a Premier League player at last.
Dunk’s best years are ahead of him and there’s no doubt that he can come into England contention over the next year. Only Knockaert has more man-of-the-match awards than Dunk this season, which is quite a feat for a defender. His average of 3.1 interceptions and 7.2 clearances per game is absolutely outstanding.
With Dunk, you don’t get simply an out-and-out defender either. His passing accuracy of just under 80% is one of the best at the club and this, allied with his 2 goals and 2 assists make him a full part of Brighton’s attacking threat. The local lad can only get better from now and will attract big bids come next January.
