Brighton player ratings: who shone and who struggled at Watford

How did the Brighton players rate during their superb 3-0 triumph at Watford on the opening day of the season?

It was a fine team performance from Graham’s Potter’s men but here’s our take on how they did individually.

Looked at ease in the back three. Defended well and comfortable on the ball. One crunching tackle on Deeney.
