Percy Tau put in a memorable performance, but a performance Manchester City’s Ukrainian left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko would like to forget!

Tau gave Zinchenko a first-hand taste of diski football at its finest when in the 32nd minute he turned him inside-out (watch below) and left the defender sprawling on the Etihad Stadium turf.

Post-match, Brighton coach Grahm Potter lauded Percy Tau for his performance.

“It is a difficult game for him [Tau] to start for a forward because they make you defend as a team. So that takes away a little bit of his attacking qualities, along with Leo [Trossard],” Potter said.

“They both work so hard for the team, they work so hard and were fantastic in that regard. They grew and grew. He [Tau] has only been with us for a week, we have to make sure he is available for the coming games, good first game, he will get better and he will get a better understanding with us.”

Following Wednesday’s defeat, Brighton are now just two points above the relegation zone.

Brighton are next in action in a clash away against Leeds United on Saturday, 16 January.

Kick-off is at 17:00 SA time.
