Have you ever had one of those evenings when you were single where you went to Shoosh and talked to as many girls as possible See how you feel just ending up in buddies alone at 3 a.m. and wait for the first train home? That was Brighton 0-0 Aston Villa

The Albion recorded 26 shots against Villa, the most they have ever had in a Premier League game. While the problem has met goals over the past few months, on that occasion nine of those efforts have been focused on what prevented this massacre an impressive goalkeeping show by Emiliano Martinez

Brighton was linked to Martinez over the summer before completing a £ 20m move from Arsenal to Villa Park, The Albion likely wish they’d done more to get him if Martinez was for no other reason than that Aston Villa and Brighton would have scored three or four wins instead of going 0-0

The Argentine’s performance is up there with Ben Foster at Amex a few seasons ago, which single-handedly took Watford a 0-0 and 47-year-old Neville Southall with 27 stones when Torquay United won 1 -0 at Withdean in 1999 as the best we’ve seen from an opposing goalkeeper

Martinez saved unreal from Alexis Mac Allister, Dan Burn, Joel Veltman and Danny Welbeck Brighton could have played six hours instead of 90 minutes and they still would not have found a way past villa number one This is not a criticism of the Albion, but a praise for Martinez’s ability to stop the shot at night

In order to dominate a Villa team who are no slouch, Albion’s recent good form continued Villa should make it into the top 10 this season, with Ross Barkley, Jack Grealish and Ollie Watkins over an impressive number of Players in the offensive feature Brighton was so good, however, that none of them could sniff

Robert Sanchez has been clean for the fifth time in six games and he won’t claim an easier shutout as Burn, Lewis Dunk and Ben White’s last three have been stellar

Steve Alzate did a good job on the left too, but the real star of the show – other than Martinez – was on the opposite page

The best way to describe Joel Veltman this season has been solid but spectacular.He never makes a mistake but because he’s compared to Tariq Lamptey on the right, Veltman doesn’t get the praise he deserves

Well, that seems to be changing now, the Dutchman was the best Brighton player on the pitch in the 0-0 draw with Aston Villa, marking Grealish out of the game like it was a gritty Netflix crime drama about a brummie with a shitty haircut in the pocket of a polite and sophisticated Dutchman

Grealish took a booking for the first half for a tough challenge against Veltman when the villa captain’s frustrations overwhelmed him

Not even Grealish, who performed and acted his normal scuba diving tricks on par with Tom Daley that would impress the woman who plays Sally on Coronation Street, couldn’t break Brighton’s dominance

The only hairy moment Albion fans had to go through throughout the evening came before the game, when Graham Potter did his pre-game interview without his lucky old lady’s scarf

After Potter lost 1-0 in Leicester City mid-week when he controversially avoided his ties, there were fears the Brighton boss would ruin another 90 minutes of football by not wearing a scarf that was designed for the Arguably the Albion’s last run was responsible for consistency in selection, players in their correct positions and better defense

Potter knows, however, how important the scarf is, thank God he was sure to have it on display at kickoff. Just as many Brighton supporters, who have all bought their own as a tribute to the Albion manager’s new fashion look and are proud shared their photos on Twitter

Oh, being a fly-on-the-wall in Paul Barber’s office on Monday morning when our profit-obsessed vice chairman goes crazy after realizing the opportunity to make money the club missed out on by turning 30 Potter Scarf could request pounds for a fee through the club shop if everyone has already bought for £ 15 from ASOS

If Barber is reading this and looking for other moneymakers, how about a Brighton on TV Bingo Card? Fans at home can check off the stock phrases any Sky Sports or BT commentator plays for Albion games, such as: B. Burn is big, White plays for The Leeds United and Mac Allister with Scottish heritage

We all got 0-0 in Brighton in the first 10 minutes. Aston Villa We also had our first two chances of that period, both of which had run off target when Burn and Mac Allister one in promising positions from Leandro Trossard and Veltman Long shot scored

Veltman pulled the first save of the evening out of Martinez when the Flying Dutchman jumped forward and cut inward, only to see the Villa goalkeeper parrying his little effort

By now Villa was beginning to realize that their only chance to stop a Brighton team in such fluid form was to mess them up that gave the Albion a couple of free kicks in promising positions Mac Allister shot across and Pascal Gross saw Martinez fend off his efforts

Neal Maupay’s early shot took the Villa goalkeeper a bit by surprise, but he still managed to distract him. Trossard was next to be denied when his shot, which shot into the top corner, was pushed over the bar

It was followed by Martinez’s best save of the evening, a breathtaking full-stretch dive and the delicacy of the fingertips that twisted Burns’ header around the post

The second half was similar to Martinez showing he could play both unconventional and spectacular goalkeeping as he had to stick a leg out to block Mac Allister’s ranged strike after John McGinn deflected the knee slightly

It was spectacular again for Martinez ‘next flying stop trick to push another Veltman ride over the bar. Trossard hit the side net and there were questions about Maupay’s decision making when he tried to go it alone and the Ball ran from the field of play when a simple pass would have brought Gross unmarked and aimed at targeting

Sure, Martinez would probably have saved it with the night he had, but it might have been nice to find out instead of seeing Maupay unfortunately give Villa a kick

That was Maupay’s last post when he was picked up for Danny Welbeck 10 minutes before the end of the game. Dat Martinez would have made an immediate impression if Martinez hadn’t shown brilliant reactions to keep Welbeck’s shot off a cross from Adam Lallana

Although Brighton couldn’t find a way past Martinez, they still managed to hit some key milestones in the 0-0 draw against Aston Villa

The Albion now have 26 Premier League points in fewer games than ever before. Six unbeaten is a new top club record and while Sanchez is not a record as such, they deserve a lot of credit for being on the streak from games without defeat have only cashed once

Next, the little thing about the Crystal Palace at Amex Palace is terrible right now Brighton is in the middle of a patch of purple and is delivering the best results and performances we’ve seen in their time in the Premier League which could possibly go wrong

Brighton scored 26 shots against Aston Villa, nine of which went into goal, but couldn’t find a way past Emiliano Martinez in the 0-0 draw at Amex

Aston Villa, Brighton v Aston Villa
