There are a few talking points from Brighton’s 0-0 draw with Norwich City on Saturday at Carrow Road.
Brighton are in the top four of the Premier League but put on an uninspiring display away to Norwich City.
Neal Maupay and Leandro Trossard went close for Albion but opponents Josh Sargent and Teemu Pukki got better chances for their team.
Sky Sports’ Jeff Stelling and Brighton defender Dan Burn thought it was a penalty while boss Graham Potter said there was contact, he was less sure on what the right call was.
Replays showed that there was contact between Maupay and goalkeeper Tim Krul, but Peter Bankes didn’t give it and Video official Adrian Holmes did not advise him to take another look.
“I’ve not looked at it really closely. It looked like there was a bit of contact,” said Potter.
“But obviously we are back into that realm of if the referee on the pitch doesn’t give it does the VAR over-rule?
“I’ve not seen it closely enough. It is what it is. We had a good chance with Neal [Maupay] but they had some opportunities as well.”
However, since Jurgen Locadia has been back in Brighton matchday squads, the Dutchman seems to have been in high spirits.
The 27-year-old looks like he is happy to be back at the club.
He may not play a lot this year and Locadia could leave Brighton next summer when his contract expires.
But for now, he is all smiles. In the first half, he was seen joking with Enock Mwepu, bumping into him along the sideline.
