Brighton and Hove Albion defender, Adam Webster, hasn’t debuted in the English Premier League because he knows the competition is fierce.

After playing in the lower English Premier League levels, center-back Adam Webster is ready for his first division debut.

But he knows the competition is fierce, and it will not be easy as Brighton and Hove Albion has great defenders.

“The three center-halves have been absolutely brilliant, so for me, it’s just about working hard every day and when that opportunity comes I’ve got to take it with both hands,” he told the club’s official website.

“They’ve [Dunk and Duffy] had a great partnership over the last few years; I remember watching them from the stands at Ipswich. Obviously, Burny has come in now and done really well too.”

“There’s great competition there. They’ve obviously started the season really well, it’s about learning as much as I can from them as they’re experienced players,” he added.

“In today’s game, defenders play a big part in how teams want to play.”

“Playing out from the back is huge now,” he said.

“It’s about right that teams are spending big money on defenders and not just the top end of the pitch.”

“Obviously they score the goals, but it’s just as important to get the right balance and defenders play a big part in that,” he concluded.
