The new boy from Brighton, Bernardo, is confident that they can recover from their defeat on the first day against Watford.

Two goals from Roberto Pereyra gave the Seagulls a disappointing 2-0 reverse at Vicarage Road.

The next two Brighton games are against Manchester United and Liverpool, but Brazilian side Bernardo, a summer signing of RB Leipzig, insists they can score points.

"If we are able to leave this result behind and get a point or three points in each of the next matches, it would be a good thing for us," he said on the club's website.

"The Premier League is one of the strongest leagues in the world, and especially against these teams, it is very difficult to get a point or three points.

"We'll be looking for that, getting points after this loss to Watford would be a very good thing."

The Hornets midfielder, Pereyra, came to fill the void left by Richarlison, who later scored twice for Everton against the Wolves.

The Argentine was not marked inside the area when he found a corner of Jose Holebas with a sweet volley 10 minutes before the break.

In minute 54 Pereyra hit again, receiving the ball from Holebas and entering behind Bernardo.

Pereyra still had a lot to do as he drove into the area, and with the angle that narrowed, he made an excellent strike past the seagulls' goalkeeper, Mat Ryan, to double the lead.

Hornets boss Javi Gracia said: "We played very well, not only with the ball but without the ball, with quick reactions after losing it, we played as a team.

& # 39; We need to improve many things. It's only three points, but starting in this way is very important for the club, the players and the fans. "
