Funny reading comments from Scottish football fans towards Duffy, questioning EPL standard when it's clear as day that.. 

A ) Duffy was having a personal crisis that deeply affected his football and

B) Celtic were (and still are) sh!te.

Say what you want, it's a substantially substandard league compared to EPL.

He was very good and will probably be disappointed with himself that he didn't score.

His passing has improved compared to the last season or 2, and he seems to be quicker than before too.

I found for Ireland last month he had noticeably improved on the ball compared to previous. He's still not perfect on it but is a lot better then what he was. Wonder had he worked on this a bit on his days off. He's fitter too he mentioned this. 

I genuinely think that's why Potter is more trusting of him now he's back in form. Now if White was there he wouldn't be starting perhaps and wed be saying something different.

He's playing very well and his passing has very noticeably improved, but Lamptey is back fit again and will take the RWB role that Veltman (who has also played as the RCB) is currently playing, so while everything is currently looking rosey, there's no guarantee Duffy keeps his place over the course of the season. Dunk is a shoo-in, Webster also when he gets back fit, so Duffy is fighting it out with Burn and Veltman for the third CB role. Playing well though, so it's his to lose and he's looking undroppable atm tbf, but he has further challenges to overcome.

In previous campaigns, I was really critical of his distribution, especially the attempted 50 yard diagonal balls that always went out of play. His improvement in his general passing has been brilliant though. He was even finding his target with those diagonal balls against Arsenal on Saturday.

He's definitely slimmer and has found an extra bit of pace too. In the Brighton backline, it's Dunk who seems to be the liability instead of Duffy, which is not something we could say in previous seasons. 

Great to see him turn his career around. No better sight seeing him attack set-pieces.

Another solid defensive performance from the comeback King. I had to double take when he missed his header such is the aerial threat.

Could have had 2 goals today but good to see other players are in and around the goals for a change

Can we just take a second to appreciate Duffy. This is the same fella hitting the ball out of play like a fly half against Bulgaria. He has improved so much on the ball its scary and it's definitely come from relentless practice on the training ground. 

He's genuinely a decent ball playing defender now by anyone's standards and it's not hard to see why Potter trusts him more. Fairplay to him and when Coleman retires Duffy is our next captain.

He was always a top player. The personal pressures that affected him at Celtic are well known now and despite the lapse in form that those events inflicted, he still managed to win a Scottish Cup medal with them and he is now back to his best with Brighton and Ireland. Terrific to see and he's going to be a big player in every sense of the expression for both for quite some time to come.

It was very good the two towering defenders coupled with the amount of dead ball specialists in the team Hourihane Cullen Mcgrath is a huge asset and despite all the great football it must be cherished. Astonishing the amount of decent dead ball players in our squad so many teams can't find one. 

On Duffy he was always a top defender but Potter put him out the side initially when he came in for a reason he wasn't good on the ball. He's improved an astonishing amount on that even compared to Hungary in June. He's clearly practised a huge amount on the training ground it's evident.

He is the best Duffy we have seen full stop, his form hasn’t just got back to what it was he is like a new man altogether with how he is playing. His performances are up there with great CBs of days gone past lately while always having the aerial threat.
