Ordination party is still not at full strength.
Brighton lost 0-1 to Chelsea in the third round of the 2023-24 English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) at 3:45 a.m. ET on Aug. 28 at Stamford Bridge in London, England.
Brighton, who are competing in the Premier League (PL) and UEFA Europa League (UEL), used a partial rotation. Facundo Buonanote, Carlos Valleva, and Igor Julio were rested, while the starting lineup included João Pedro, Kaoru Mitoma, Pervis Estupinan, and Tarip Lamptey. It was a statement of intent to win, even as they rested.
Pati got the start. One of Barcelona and Spain’s top prospects, Pati made his professional debut in the 2019-20 season. He broke all the youngest records and was considered one of the best prospects in Europe. He was touted as the next Lionel Messi and the next big thing in Spain’s offense. However, a knee injury sidelined him for a while, and a series of hamstring injuries halted his progress.
Coach Xavi Hernandez didn’t see him as a starter. Relegated to the bench, Pati was forced to show what he could do in short bursts of playing time, and each time he came up short. This season was no different. He looked for a loan and was even linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, but instead went to Brighton. At Brighton, he wore the number 31 shirt and dreamed of a resurgence.
Fatih made his Brighton debut against Manchester United. He started and played the full game in the UEL against AEK. He also started against Bournemouth. His performance did not meet expectations. It was the same performance he was criticized for at Barcelona. He had flashes of brilliance, but overall, he was disappointing. After starting against Bournemouth, Pati was substituted just after halftime.온라인카지노
His performance was better than before, with three key passes. He looked good creating chances, so it was a surprise when he was substituted at the start of the second half. The game ended in a 0-1 loss for Brighton. After the game, Roberto De Zerbi was naturally asked why he made the early substitution.
“He didn’t play many games for Barcelona and he played 45 minutes against Bournemouth. It would be a big risk for him to play 90 minutes. We spoke after the Bournemouth game and we decided it was right for him to play 45 minutes because we have a big game at the weekend and he needs to be in good shape.” Brighton will be hoping that Pati is fit for the upcoming game against Aston Villa.
