Hello and welcome to a new weekly article from AllOutFootball with myself Will Beesley. Each week I will analyse the premier league games and choose one player to be labelled with the title of “Hero of the week”
As the international break comes to a close the excitement of the premier league is back with many great fixtures for us fans to enjoy.
Getting straight into it this weeks Hero of the week which goes to Pascal Gross, where new premier league side Brighton and hove Albion had a lot to prove at this time of the season. Losing their first two games and drawing their third it was time for a win.
The performance the team and in particular Gross put in was outstanding, the reason I have chosen Gross this week and have given him the respect of Hero of the week is as follows….
The German player held his own the against a good West Brom side,
His first goal which he provided a lovely cross over to the far side then being patient and on his toes to get the return ball into the box. Keeping his composure he strikes the ball past the West Brom’s keeper giving Brighton the lead just before half time. In doing so also lifting the Brighton fans with their first ever premier league goal in history.
The second half begins and Gross is still in the attacking mindset looking for another, just a couple of minutes into the second half he finds the space and dribbles though the West Brom’s half. Gross then shoots with power and great accuracy keeping it low and driven to score his second of the game.
Scoring goals wasn’t the only thing he did that game he also picked up an assist for his fellow teammate Hemed. From Gross continuing to pile on the pressure he wins it on the left side and crosses a pin point ball in for Hemed and with some luck off the post the ball goes in.
The final score being 3:1 to Brighton and hove Albion I’m proud to say Gross deserves this weeks Hero of the week.
Do you agree?
Who do you think should have been crowned Hero of the week?
