Brighton boss Potter upbeat despite boos after Norwich stalemate



Graham Potter insists “there were lots of positives” to take from Brighton’s 0-0 draw at home to Norwich City.

Albion are going through a terrible spell and are now 13th in the Premier League after six losses in their last seven games.

Gerrard, Rodgers and Moyes will be furious with rule change

Boos from a section of the home crowd greeted the Brighton players after the full-time whistle.

The stalemate makes it just one goal in their last seven matches. Furthermore, they have not scored at home since mid-January.

“It is a frustrating one, that is for sure,” Potter told BBC Match of the Day.

“There were lots of positives in terms of our intent and how we went about things. The all important goal alluded us today and that is the only disappointing bit. We have to keep positive, keep going, and hopefully it will turn for us.

“I don’t like to talk about luck. We need to keep working, keep giving the players opportunities. They performed well, they only had one chance at the end so we restricted them in that sense.”

A point doesn’t do Norwich much good either. Dean Smith’s side are currently bottom of the league, seven points behind 17th-place Everton, who have three games in hand on the Canaries.

Elsewhere, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was happy with his players after they strolled to a 2-0 victory against Burnley in the Premier League.

Responding to Liverpool’s 2-0 lunchtime victory over Watford, first-half goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan put City back on top of the league.

“We’re many years playing in these types of games,” Guardiola said after the win at Turf Moor. “We scored early on so that helped us a lot. But the game is never finished until you score the third or fourth.

“The pitch was so difficult because the grass was high, no water and everything was so slow. But we did well and won the game.

“The next Premier League game we will play against Liverpool so we know they are going to win almost all the games – hopefully not the next one – but we will try to do the same. It’s Atletico Madrid next, then Liverpool.”
