And it may have resulted in them opening the season with six points instead of four.
Gross made clever combinations with substitute debutant Koaru Mitoma in a frustrating 0-0 draw with Newcastle.
But he dragged a late chance wide after dazzling work from the Japan international.
Graham Potter has praised his side’s attacking options and there’s every chance they’ll be part of their squad soon.
Gross wasn’t surprised by Mitoma’s performance, telling The Argus: “He’s fast, he’s a good one-on-one player.
“A great character who works really hard.
“He came on and I talked about that – our group is so good, in this form, because everyone is working hard in training.
“You know whoever comes is going to be good because we train at a level, we push each other.
“He came and was really good.
“He showed his quality, which I see every day.
“That’s why I was in the pits because I know he’s really good one-on-one and I was trying to prepare.”
Gross believes the Seagulls will take a positive view of their start to the season as they prepare for Sunday’s visit to West Ham.
He said: “Thanks to the Newcastle defense and the goalkeeper, they did a good job but it felt a little disappointing.
“My feeling was if anyone scored, it would be us.
“But the Premier League is ruthless.
“You see, that’s when they get a chance and there were times when you could lose those kinds of games too.
“That’s the dangerous thing in the Premier League.
“There might be a bit of quality and you’re even more disappointed.
“It was one point, four points from the first two games.
“It could be six, but we’re going on.”
