Moder holds off the challenge of Paul Pogbas last weekend.

Jakub Moder says he felt ready to make the step up to Premier League football when Graham Potter gave him his first start last month. 
The midfielder played in the 3-0 win over Newcastle United month after a handful of appearances from the Albion bench.

He said, “My involvement in the first-team group has come at the right moment for me. I needed some time to adapt to my new club and country.
“It’s a new league with different intensity and a different way of training and I think it’s all worked really well.
“I feel I have played well, but I think I can show more and that my best will come.”

The 22-year-old, who celebrated his birthday last week, spoke about playing wide on the left in recent weeks and also praised Graham Potter’s input into his development.
“I have played out wide in recent matches as well as towards the back. That’s new for me as I am used to playing more in the middle. But I feel comfortable there, I don’t have any problem with that.
“The head coach is a really nice guy who has helped me a lot, I think he’s got great ability and we are well prepared to face every opponent.
“The most important thing is we keep trying to play good football and create chances, this is the most important aspect for me personally and I feel the way we play suits me well."

Moder is grateful to everyone at the club for helping him to settle in his new surroundings following his January switch from Lech Poznan.
“I’m starting to feel at home, everyone was great from the first day. If I had any questions or any problems, there was always someone who tried to help.

“I only took a day to decide to come to Brighton, it was an easy decision to make."
