Brighton boss Graham Potter insists he will prepare for Burnley in precisely the same way as he prepared for Liverpool. The Seagulls sprung a huge surprise with a 1-0 win against the champions at Anfield on Wednesday night – just as the Clarets had done in Liverpool’s previous home game. Next up is another trip to the North West and a different test in the shape of Sean Dyche’s Clarets, who lie just one place and eight points above the bottom three.
But Graham Potter said: “It’s the same in terms of the challenge of the game, it’s the Premier League. I’ve said before every game in this league is so difficult and brings a different dimension. Burnley are very good at what they do and they make it very difficult and they’ve got a real clarity of what they are trying to achieve. I have huge respect for Sean Dyche and the job he has done there. Fantastic. I like what they do a lot. You can see the work. So it’s going to be a tough match. It’s the same in that you have to have the balance in defence and attack. You have to be aware and respectful of the opposition. Every opposition brings something different, it’s an incredible test and we should never lose sight of that in the Premier League. It doesn’t happen very often that you go to the champions and win, so we’ll enjoy that, but pretty quickly we’ll be back down to earth.”
