The 24-year-old midfielder admits that he has not yet reached an agreement that the seagulls suffered a defeat for Toffees at home

Mali landscape Yves Bissouma is yet to come to terms with how Brighton and Hove Albion suffered their first Premier League defeat of the season against Everton on Saturday.

The Seagulls’ unbeaten start to the season ended after goals from Demarai Gray in the 41st minute and Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the 58th minute, from penalty kick, sentenced them to a 2-0 defeat at Falmer Park.

Brighton, led by Graham Potter, had a bright start to the season and won their first two matches 2-1 against Burnley at Turf Moor before defeating Watford 2-0 at home.

But Everton’s first win at Brighton since April 1983 has left the 24-year-old midfielder in pain and disgust.

“I have a hard time digesting this defeat by what we wanted to win our third game in a row for a great club with incredible fans,” Bissouma explained on his Twitter handle.

“But unfortunately, as we say in football, nothing is planned in advance, but the best is yet to come, focus on the next Brighton.”
