Brighton star Yves Bissouma has been told he needs to improve the defensive side of his game to become a big Premier League success.

The Mali international has largely impressed since his move from Lille last summer, especially with his driving runs forward into the opposition box.

He has had questions levelled at him for his work-rate when he has not got the ball, and he has also been guilty of giving it away on occasion, and team-mate Gaetan Bomg says he should look at those areas.

Bong told The Argus: ‘He was doing well.

He is working hard.

He is a young boy who has just come into the Premier League.

‘Like we have said, we are a defensive team and he has to learn some stuff.

‘He is an amazing player with the ball, but he needs to learn where he needs to be, when to play it easy, when he can go forward.

‘We see his quality, but football is not only going forward and attacking.’
