GROSS: WATFORD A TURNING POINT

7 October 2017

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Pascal Gross feels the Watford game has been a key turning point in the season so far.
 
The German explained how the positive performance at Vicarage Road gave the squad belief that they could go on and compete in the Premier League.
 
He said, “The first two games against Man City and Leicester were tough because they were my first two in the Premier League.
 
“From the third game we did much better, playing well in every game, with the chance of taking points.
 
“The performance in the Watford game convinced us that we can win games. We kept a clean sheet, took our first point and then we believed that we could win against West Brom. Since then we’ve played with more confidence, which was important.”
 
Gross reflected on Albion’s most recent match against Arsenal, and he is now focused on getting the right result against Everton next Sunday.
 
“We didn’t play too badly, but we could’ve played with a bit more self-confidence and scored a couple of goals.
 
“They had chances too, but we perhaps had to play the last pass a bit better.
 
“Now I only have the Everton match in my mind, and that’s the most important game.
 
“We have to take it game by game and we have to fight for every point, because we are not in a position to think about games that are too far away.”
