Adam Lallana lashed out at claims Brighton was stuck in a “goal drought” before their late 3-2 win away from 10-man Wolves.
The 34-year-old opened the scoring for the Seagulls after 10 minutes of Saturday’s game, and although they trailed 2-1 in 25 minutes, goals from Kaoru Mitoma and Pascal Gross saw the visitors leave with all three points. after the match. hosts were diminished by the resignation of Nelson Semedo.
In the match Danny Welbeck also made his comeback at Brighton, coming in for Lallana in the 65th minute.
Brighton scored 19 goals in their 12 league appearances for the win over Molineux. After the game, Match of the Day spoke to Lallana about their so-called goal drought – and immediately questioned the validity of the claim, especially with players like Welbeck on the squad.

‘Can I say something about that? I think that’s complete nonsense,” said the former Liverpool player. “Especially with the way we play, I think we’re reaching great areas.
“It’s about all of us contributing a little bit more. If we want a striker as good as Danny Welbeck, then I think we need to spend £80-90million in the UK market. They don’t exist, they don’t exist.
“We just have to get better and we all take a little bit of responsibility in the last third. It was nice to contribute a little more today.’

Lallana’s goal came from the second wave of attack formed by a corner from Brighton, with the midfielder scoring the first time from Leandro Trossard.
Lallana told Match of the Day: ‘I don’t get many these days! I like a little form, a little rhythm. I’ve played the last few games in a pleasant role. I feel I can find good spaces and it’s always nice to contribute.”
About the result, the England striker told the BBC: “Three points in a Premier League game is huge. A little relieved in the end. When they went to 10, it turned out to be more difficult. I thought we hit the ball a lot instead of moving the ball and we sometimes sat in our own way.

‘But we persisted and Pascal [Gross] came up against trumps again with the goal that gave us three points.’
Lallana added: “Back-to-back wins in the Premier League is great and we will continue.”
Brighton’s next challenge is a trip to high-flying Arsenal in the League Cup on Wednesday night, for a Premier League home game on Sunday in their last game before the World Cup break.
