Neil Etheridge

Let down by indecision in the back four. Both Burnley goals followed errors, but the goal produced a massive personal display to make some outstanding saves 8

Lee Peltier

Solid defender who can offer a threat going forward. He must do more of that at Brighton, who are short on confidence and ripe for the taking 6

Sean Morrison (capt)

A leader who wins his individual battles and always gives everything he has. As a captain I’d want ‘Mozza’ on my side 6

Bruno Manga

An off day for a player I rate highly. He has composure and an assurance, but this was a day when he wasted possession far too often 5

Joe Bennett

Has the ability to make a major contribution at Premier level. Inconsistency holds him back, but he is not far away from being a leading full-back 5

Aron Gunnarsson

Love watching ‘Gunnar’. An experienced competitor who organises those around him, barking orders and trying to ensure everybody does their jobs. Don’t even question whether it was a penalty when he was tripped inside the penalty area. It was a spot-kick. 100 per cent 7

Harry Arter

Chased, harried, argued and made a nuisance of himself in midfield. A competitor who always give all he can 6

Man of the Match – Victor Camarasa

A Spanish playmaker with genuine ability at a top level. A gem in midfield who is helped by Arter’s unselfish running and workmate 8

Junior Hoilett

Tried to put Burnley on the backfoot with his trickery on the wing, but too often lost possession after gaining a hard. Fired over from City’s best chance after great work by Zohore 5

Josh Murphy

A man lacking in confidence. He has all the attributes needed to be a success at the top level, but he was wasteful in possession and has to believe in himself. He has pace, tricks and ability 5

Kenneth Zohore

I want to see the big man breathing fire and physically intimidating defenders. He worked hard without really causing Burnley too many problems. When he produced a moment of sublime quality to set up Hoilett the Canadian fired over when he should have hit the target 5

Subs: Mendez-Laing (for Hoilett 73), Oumar Niasse (for Zohore 78), Bobby Decordova-Reid (for Arter 81). Subs not used: B Murphy, Cunningham, Bacuna, Ralls.
