LOANEE Armando Broja described his first few months at Saints as "crazy", adding: "I'm just trying to improve every day."

Broja, who is at Saints on a season-long loan from Chelsea, is currently the club's top scorer this term.

That is after his impressive opener during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Brighton, taking his tally for the campaign to five.

The 20-year-old scored twice on his debut, in the 8-0 Carabao Cup win at Newport County, before also netting against Leeds United and Burnley in the Premier League.

Broja has been largely restricted to a role as substitute this season, with Che Adams and Adam Armstrong often preferred.

However, the Albania international grabbed his chance from the off against Brighton, in just his fifth start for the club.

His goal looked like it would be the winner, until Neal Maupay popped up with an equaliser in the eighth minute of second-half stoppage time.

Assessing his time at Saints so far, Broja told the Daily Echo: "I’m really enjoying it.

"It’s obviously my first season in the Premier League. It’s been crazy.

"I’m a young player and it’s amazing for everyone to be able to have this opportunity to be in the Premier League and gain experience and become a better player and work with better players.

"It’s a dream come true. I’m just trying to improve every day and just learn."

He added: "Of course there’s always competition. It’s the Premier League, it’s the most difficult league, there’s always going to be competition in the team.

"It’s good. I’ll just keep my head down and try and help out the team as much as possible and I was thankful that I got a goal (on Saturday), but the main thing is the team. It was just a shame that we couldn’t take the three points."

Reflecting on the late Brighton equaliser, Broja, who had already been replaced by Armstrong when Maupay found the net, said: "Of course it’s disappointing. It’s a big blow to concede to a goal like that.

"It’s obviously not the best thing for us, but I think our overall performance was really good.

"I think we controlled the game, we dominated the game, it’s just unfortunate to concede a goal right at the end.

"It’s not what you want. We just need to keep pushing forward, improving and working hard."

He added: "It’s the Premier League, anything can happen, it’s the best league in the world.

"One chance and it’s a goal. It’s not ideal for us.

"We dominated the game and that’s the thing, when you concede a goal like that, basically the last kick of the game, it was a shame obviously after what I think was a dominant performance from us.

"But we’re just going to keep pushing forward and onto Arsenal next week."
