Knockaert to take responsibility
Brighton winger Anthony Knockaert says he will try and be the main creative influence in their plot to stay in the Premier League.
The Frenchman has been restored back to the line up in recent weeks following a sustained spell on the bench and has been generally impressive, playing his part in their winner against Huddersfield on Saturday.
The Seagulls travel to their fierce rivals Crystal Place on Saturday as they look to try and get their second successive win to further bolster their chances of a third season in the Premier League next year.
Knockaert has acknowledged that he is a frustrating player, but has vowed to continue trying things to create chances, with the 27-year-old fifth in the assist per minute table, only just behind the likes of Eden Hazard and Christian Eriksen.
Knockaert said: “As a winger, you are going to try some stuff and I think the fans have to accept that.
“My job is to try some stuff and at times it is going to work and at other times it is not.
“I think I’ve tried to bring something to the team and it worked at the end with an assist so I’m really pleased.”
