Brighton boss Graham Potter said: “It was a very satisfying performance and result and an important three points for us to finish the season.
“I told Yves in vestuario’que’s a miracle we’ve seen ‘. It has quality and we are very happy with it. He has been working hard and has the ability to score from there. ” “We wanted to end it strongly and we here come three points against a team that are not easy to take points off.
“I am very happy for the players. It is the reward for the work they have done and it’s nice to finish ahead of the break with a win. “
After a slow start from both teams, who both had little at stake in terms of outcome, Bissouma opened the scoring after 20 minutes.
The midfielder initially lost the ball in a good position 30 yards from goal Burnley, but eventually recovered and reached an incredible long-range effort that flew into the top left corner of the goal from Papa Nick. Burnley came back and tied the halftime edge (44 ‘) with their first clear chance of the game through striker Chris Wood.
A ball high above the defense by Erik Pieters Brighton saw Wood bring the ball down with a lovely touch first on the right leg and coolly slot home with his left beyond Maty Ryan 1-1.
After the break, Aaron Connolly got his third goal in the Premier League this season – the first since a double against Tottenham in October – the minute 50 after a trademark and chasing breakneck pace.
The 20-year-old latched onto a ball down the left, leaving Burnley Back Kevin Long for dead, and then found his composure to open his body in the housing and tightened in an effort from a tight angle on the corner farthest from the goal of the Pope. Brighton goals for Nick Pope lost to Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson for the Gold Glove award on the last day of the season, after he finished the season in 16 clean sheets and the former 15.
Burnley manager Sean Dyche said: “He [the Pope] had the opportunity to get a share of the gold glove and a worldie is his first goal and was a second-soft of us on the defensive against him.
“I would have liked to have seen get a part of that and that has not happened.”
