Player to watch – Evan Ferguson

Evan Ferguson made a real name for himself last season in the Premier League, scoring six goals in 19 appearances. This season, the Irish international has scored six times in 24 appearances but is going through a goal drought that spans his last 17 games in all competitions for the Seagulls.

Hoping to end his goal drought on Saturday

Ferguson's last goal for Brighton arrived back in November during the 3-2 victory over Nottingham Forest but the striker scored against Fulham in the pair's reverse league fixture back in October and we're backing the 19-year-old to find the back of the net against Fulham this weekend.
