The 25-year-old was named the EFL’s Championship Player of the Year earlier this week, having scored 13 goals in 40 games for the Seagulls.
And while Knockaert has been consistently impressing those who are fans of the Championship for the entire season, the Frenchman’s double against Wolves has the entire country on notice.
In fact, after the former Leicester City player put Brighton 2-0 in front, Twitter stood up and celebrated the player who could make his mark in the Premier League next season if Chris Hughton’s side get promoted:
Anthony Knockaert should stay with Brighton even when they're in the EPL. He can carry them to safety imo if he carries on his form.

Close call, but I think Anthony Knockaert is probably my favourite footballer whose surname looks like a Countdown conundrum.

Take a bow Anthony Knockaert. If there's a man that deserves to play in the Premier League it's him. Currently 2-0 up vs Wolves. https://t.co/E2K5yvhJvE

Anthony Knockaert is a baller I've said it time and time again, deserves to be a Premiership footballer

Anthony Knockaert will be a great addition to the Premier League next season, brilliant player #WOLvBRI

Is Knockaert good enough to make a splash in the Premier League and can he push the Championship leaders to safety in England’s top flight next season?
Or has the winger simply found his level in the second tier of English football?
