Bad blow for Roberto De Zerbi's Brighton in today's first match of the English championship.
Engaged on the field of Aston Villa, the 'Seagulls' have taken six coming out defeated 6-1 by the team in which he played from the beginning, in the role of attacking winger on the left, Nicolò Zaniolo, then replaced by Ramsey (author of one of the goals of his) at the 12 'st.
It was since April 2012 that Brighton had not scored 6 goals in a league match, regardless of the category. For Aston Villa it was instead, including last season, the tenth consecutive victory at home. Villans scored, as well as Ramsey, Douglas Luiz and Watkins, the latter scoring a hat-trick. An own goal by Estupinan also benefited the home team, while Ansu Fati scored the Brighton flag.
"When you lose like this, when you lose 6-1, the coach is primarily to blame, but for Brighton it should be an honour to play in the Europa League, and it should be an honour to fight to become a top-level team. An honor, not something that puts pressure - he says -. Last year we wanted Europe, but playing once every three days is another sport than one game a week as it had been until now. We either decide that we want to compete every three days and fight to do it, or we settle for playing once a week.
We have to accept that the rhythms have changed, that's the only thing to do. We suffer so much for this defeat, but sometimes it happens to lose like this, especially if you are not mentally ready."
