Brighton attacker Percy Tau gave Manchester City defender Oleksandr Zinchenko a taste of diski football when he left the left-back sprawling on the floor with some neat skill.

The South African made his full Premier League debut on Wednesday night and impressed as Brighton did well to keep Man City at bay for much of the first half.

Manager Graham Potter was pictured grimacing as his side conceded just before half-time in the 44th minute through a Phil Foden goal.

From a local perspective Tau looked comfortable and had a few impressive periods of play that left SA fans showing their support on social media.

Tau lasted 67 mins in an impressive debut as Brighton pushed Man City in a surprisingly tight contest.
