Potter enjoys dream Premier League debut as Brighton coach

Potter enjoys dream Premier League debut as Brighton coach”

"Maybe it is a good wake-up call for the rest of the season".

Although Watford was not in danger of being relegated last season, they'll surely be looking to improve on their 11th-place, 50-point finish.

"What I know is they played better than us and deserve the victory". It might have been only seven but Potter provoked considerable surprise by picking Pascal Gross instead of Leandro Trossard, the solitary change to the XI from the final two friendlies against Birmingham and Valencia. "We did well. It is our first time playing with five defenders", the Romanian added. All of us were disappointed today.

While there will be arguments from some quarters that the Seagulls have over-spent on certain players, the level of investment was required to give the club the best possible chance of avoiding another relegation battle.

With just 3 wins from their last 23 matches in the Premier League it seemed a new direction was needed and former Swansea City manager, Graham Potter was appointed.

He said: "We're very happy with the result, with the performance I thought the players were fantastic".

"I trust we will do better in the second game".

It is thought that Brighton are comfortable with the recruitment work they have already done this summer but should this opportunity arise on deadline day it could see further transfer incomings. "To score three goals and keep a clean sheet is something for us to build on and improve", he said.

"He's a great guy and a top goalkeeper. a top professional", Mooy said.

However, a change in philosophy at the Amex Stadium means that Brighton head into the campaign as somewhat of an unknown quantity, although it is hard to find anything to be critical about when assessing the club's transfer business.

"We had to defend as well, survive the moments which you have to expect in a Premier League game".
