Brighton keeper Sanchez: This season exceeded expectations

Robert Sanchez admits this season with Brighton has exceeded expectations.

Since coming into the side Sanchez has kept ten clean sheets in his 23 appearances for the Seagulls, of which nine have come in his last 15 matches.

But the Spanish international has surprised himself by how well he has performed in the top flight so far this season.

He told The Argus: “I am really happy with it (my season so far).

“Since I started playing in goal it was all about going game-by-game and doing the best I could.

“But to be honest it has been even better than I expected, and I am really happy about that.

“Now I need to keep going and playing at this level."

But with four games left to play, what is Sanchez targeting to achieve in the remainder of the campaign.

He said: “I want to try and keep as many clean sheets as possible, maintain the level that I am playing at and stay safe and take it game-by-game."
