1. Ron Sanchez 7/10
Difficult to fault him for either goal, especially Foden's brilliant strike. Looked calm and confident as always and first Premier League match with fans.
2. Ben White 7/10
Up against the tricky Foden and other than the goal, defended well. One excellent sliding block in the first half to deny City. Another solid display against high quality opposition
3. Adam Webster 8/10
First goal of the season and what a header it was. Great display from the centre back and looks every inch a top Premier League defender. A leader in Dunk's absence.
4. Dan Burn 8/10
Finally got the goal his performances have deserved this season and surprisingly it came with his right foot. First ever goal for Brighton and what a time to do it
