The Belgian explained there was even more motivation among the squad to spark an impressive recovery from 3-1 down to claim a point in East London, and hopes the result can give everyone more belief going forward.

He said, “It’s been a hard time for him and the group reacted well because of that. We did everything in our power to get a point or three points for him. Everyone stood by his side.

“Now we believe that we can take something from any game and we need to have the confidence to play.

“It’s a massive game now next Saturday [v Watford]. It wasn’t nice to go into the dressing room being 2-0 down at half-time, but we reacted well and could even have won the game.”

Trossard also paid tribute to Glenn Murray following his equaliser against the Hammers, and said the Seagulls frontman had no doubts about the legitimacy of his strike.

“He played a really good game, and it’s nice to play with Glenn because he can hold the ball up for you," added Trossard.

“I felt I linked up with him really well. I’m glad that he scored his first goal of the season and hopefully there are many more to come.

“He was confident and told me directly that he didn’t think it was a handball. It wasn’t and he made it 3-3.

“It’s a big point for us to take into the next game.”
