Brighton had 19 efforts on goal against Nottingham Forest
Brighton’s winless run under new boss Roberto de Zerbi continued with a frustrating Premier League draw against strugglers Nottingham Forest.
The Italian is the first Brighton manager to fail to win any of his first four league games since Barry Lloyd in 1987.
The results sees Brighton stay seventh after stuttering in recent weeks, picking up just two points from four games since the departure of Graham Potter to Chelsea.
However, quite how the hosts did not manage to win will mystify and exasperate the new man at the helm.
De Zerbi’s side were dominant throughout and spurned several gilt-edged chances against a Forest side that appeared happy to try to contain their opponents.
Leandro Trossard saw a powerful effort cannon back off the crossbar and was twice denied by good saves from Dean Henderson.
Both Adam Webster and Joel Veltman missed glaring opportunities from close range and Henderson came to Forest’s rescue again late on, his superb save from Pascal Gross ensuring that Steve Cooper’s men climb off the bottom of the table.
Brighton’s old flaw returns
Having seemingly solved their problems in front of goal earlier in the season, Brighton’s last four fixtures have delivered a reminder of their major flaw over the last three campaigns in which they averaged just above a goal a game.
Just as in their recent defeats against Tottenham and Brentford, their dominance of the ball did not translate into goals or points with 54 efforts on goal providing a return of just one point.
Forest’s on-loan Manchester United goalkeeper Henderson can claim a considerable share of the credit for holding them at bay in this contest.
He bravely scooped the ball away from Danny Welbeck’s feet during the first period and athletically saved two stinging efforts from Brighton’s Belgian forward Trossard.
However, tipping Gross’ mis-hit effort to safety when it appeared destined to bounce into the top-left corner was arguably his best moment of the night.
