Chris Hughton sees our away form as the biggest plus of the season so far.
We're unbeaten on our travels so far this term after tricky trips to Newcastle, West Brom and Chelsea.
Although still early days in the campaign, by way of contrast we only managed points from five of our 19 Premiership away games last season, three wins and two draws.
Sunday's excellent defensive display and point at Chelsea underlined a new toughness this time around.
"It's a great point for us and anyone going there this season, whoever they are, getting a point will be a very good point because of the quality Chelsea now have," commented coach Chris.
"The biggest improvement is our away form. Unfortunately if I look at the last couple of seasons we haven't got too much from our travels and although our away form has been okay at times, we haven't picked up points.
"At this stage of the season to have already gone to West Brom, Newcastle and Chelsea, three difficult away games and picked up points from each is a fabulous position to be in."
