Analysis: Brighton 1-1 Sheff Utd

Michael Beardmore, BBC Sport

Brighton have enough problems at the moment without adding self-inflicted ones to the list.

Balancing the demands of domestic and European is a tightrope at the best of times but a seemingly never-ending run of injuries is plaguing Brighton too.

Despite that, they appeared to have plenty in reserve to beat Sheffield United after a totally one-sided opening hour that should have yielded more than one goal.

But their wastefulness in front of goal and, at times, a lack of urgency in such positions, perhaps believing the game was already in the bag, was compounded by Mahmoud Dahoud's awful challenge on Ben Osborn.

In the end, they were grateful for a point but three successive draws against Everton, Fulham and, now, the Blades, feel like a backward step for Roberto De Zerbi's side.

They do have the international break coming up which should help in terms of bringing players back to fitness but there's no guarantee of returning to winning ways with a trip to a Nottingham Forest side very strong at home next up.
