Adam Lallana only managed 44 minutes of action for Brighton yesterday before having to come off injured against Chelsea but, in that time, he showed what he might be able to bring to the Seagulls.

The hope will be that he can leave behind the injury-hit days that struck his career at Liverpool because, as he showed on Monday night, when on form and fit he can still be a really creative force in the midfield to attacking phase.

Indeed, some of his numbers made for impressive reading:

He made the joint-most key passes out of any Brighton player on the field last night, notching two in his 44 minutes on the pitch, whilst the accuracy of those passes was at 88.9% which is perhaps the most outstanding of all, especially when he tasked with playing those risky through balls that generate the most reward.

He was fouled once and completed one dribble when on the field, whilst he also recorded an interception, something Graham Potter will want more of as Brighton look to win the ball higher up the field.

It was, of course, only a real sighter of what he could do for Brighton in the coming season but, providing he can stay fit, Seagulls will feel there is still plenty to come from the former Liverpool man.
