Brighton boss Hughton pleased with Bissouma debut in Liverpool defeat

Brighton boss Chris Hughton was pleased with Yves Bissouma's debut in defeat at Liverpool.

The summer signing from Lille was caught in possession by James Milner in the build-up to Salah's decisive strike but otherwise impressed.

Hughton told The Argus: “It's a learning curve but we shouldn't have got to that stage in the first place.

“They are a very good pressing team, arguably the best, and if we put ourselves in that position it becomes very difficult for us.

“Overall I was pleased. He's trained really well since he's arrived.

“He's still only young, he's getting used to the way that we play, but he's a talented player.

“He will improve I think with each game.

“The reason I played him was because it gave us that little bit of a different dimension in midfield."
