Summary of Fulham's 0:1 victory over Brighton from Manor Solomon's goal (Sport 1)
Manor Solomon has done it again - and this time in a big way.
Last week he came off the bench for the final minutes and scored Fulham's second goal in the 88th minute in a 0:2 win over Nottingham Forest, today (Saturday) he came on in the 82nd minute and six minutes later, in the exact same minute, scored the only goal in the game that he gave Fulham 0:1 in Brighton, in a match between two teams that are fighting for one of the tickets to the UEFA factories and that on the evening of the 24th round in the Premier League were close to each other.
Solomon actually scored two goals in 23 minutes on the grass in his last two appearances in the Premier League and the enthusiasm in England was at its peak. Solomon , as I remember, was injured in August after making only one appearance as a substitute and only returned last month after a number of months, but is quickly positioning himself as a prominent player - even if only as a substitute so far.

At the end of the game Manor Solomon
: "It's an amazing feeling. To be honest, it was not an easy game for us, against a very high-quality opponent and we didn't even get the three points, but we're so happy that we won and that we're going home with the points, that's the most important thing. I always want to help the team and contribute to it and I'm very happy that today I was able to do that."
About the goal he said: "I had free space and I knew I had a good chance to score, so I'm very happy that I was in a good position and that's all. It's an amazing feeling. As a soccer player I always want to be on the field and start in the team, but I just came back from a long injury and the team is playing great so It's not easy to get into the lineup. I'm getting back to myself, my confidence is improving, and of course I hope to start soon, but I'll be happy with everything I get from the coach."

Finally, Solomon was asked about the fact that coach Roberto de Zerbi beat Brighton, who coached him at Shakhtar Donetsk: "He hugged me, we were together in Ukraine and spent a lot of time. He is a coach at a very high level, I am happy for him that he is successful at Brighton and I am sure that they have a bright future ahead of them and I wish them well Successfully".
By the way, the Ukrainian media is also following Solomon, he is on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk, and while we praised him for his two goals, they compared his contribution to that of Mykhailo Modric - Chelsea's new star, who was acquired in a deal that could reach around 100 million pounds - But he is having trouble fitting in and today he just came off the bench in another Chelsea loss, this time to table-topping Southampton.
The comparisons between Solomon and Modric began
Goalkeeper Brend Leno saved Fulham time after time and was named the fans' man of the match, but it was Solomon who grabbed the headlines.
In "The Guardian" it was written that "Solomon stunned Brighton and kept Fulham's dream of qualifying for a European competition next season. And he did it precisely against De Zarby."
The Daily Mail wrote: "De Zarby gave Solomon a hug before entering the field as a substitute, after six minutes he beat him with a dramatic goal."
