Brighton striker Pascal Gross: Very hard start for me

Brighton striker Pascal Gross says he's still adjusting to Premier League life.

The German appeared in all three of Albion's games in August, and explained the differences between playing in England's top flight as opposed to the Bundesliga.

He said, “The first few games have been very hard and we were against big teams. We had big opponents, but we played better in the third game against Watford, in a game that we should've won.

“Right now we have one point and we have to take more going forward, but we will keep going and try our best.

“It's different to the Bundesliga because it's more physical and the referees don't whistle so often. In Germany, it's easier to get free-kicks and the referees will let more stuff go here.

“You have to learn fast and get used to the English mentality. That's what I want to do and I train hard to improve every day."
