Craig Mackail-Smith, Ashley Barnes and Stephen Dobbie have not found the net in the Seagulls' last four outings.

Poyet said: "Someone needs to score. The strikers need to play for the team, understand the way we play and help the team, but at the same time score and help us win the game.

"These are the things we need to put into consideration and if they have the chance they need to play their game. If everything goes alright they are going to have more chances.

"In my group of players there are not many who are really ahead of the rest. They are very similar and if they are performing well they have the chance to be in the team in front of someone else. It's completely up to the players.

"I say to them 'show me what you can do, but show me for the team'.

Without playing for themselves they need to start producing because they are playing in very specific positions. They need to score goals."

o be fair, one of the reasons its so difficult for certain clubs to get close to Real Madrid or Barcelona is once they have a player who is good enough to compete against the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona, they f*ck off, usually to either Real Madrid or Barcelona.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.
