​Brighton winger Knockaert welcomes Jahanbakhsh challenge

Brighton winger Anthony Knockaert is not afraid of facing competition for his place.

Knockaert has looked very impressive since the start of the season. He was particularly good against Manchester United in a 3-2 win last weekend.

But he knows that record signing Alireza Jahanbakhsh will challenge him for his position. And he is ready.

He told The Argus: "We are a group, we are all together and that is how we need to march on together.

"If you see the big teams, at Manchester City they have got three right-wingers at an unbelievable level and that's how football is.

"I'm not scared of it but the most important is to have a good relationship with Ali and we have that."
