Potter: A goal was ‘only thing missing’ vs Burnley

Brighton boss Graham Potter was pleased by the performance of his side in their 0-0 draw against Burnley.

The Seagulls remain 16th in the Premier League after Friday night’s stalemate against Burnley. Brighton were the better side in a game of few gilt-edged chances.

Former Manchester United and Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck made his first Brighton start against Sean Dyche’s side. He had a couple of chances but he could not quite find the winning goal.

With this result, Burnley remain winless in the Premier League. But the point is their second of the campaign and it moves them above Sheffield United and into 19th place.

Brighton have still only won one league game themselves this season. They are yet to pick up maximum points at the American Express Community Stadium.

Potter reflected positively on a good night’s work after the game, as cited by BBC Sport:

“You’ve got to score. That was the only thing missing from our performance. We restricted Burnley to pretty much nothing. We had chances.

“Performance-wise, I’m really happy. We’re always looking to improve. It’s disappointing to only get one point.

“The fact Danny Welbeck gets in there [to have chances] is really positive. It was a really good impact and good performance. He’ll get better and better the longer he’s with us.

“The team gave everything. We were playing a dangerous opponent but we had good control of things. We tried our best to score.

“Possession itself is not that important, it’s what you do with it. You’re not going to get too many chances at this level. We had enough to score.”

It might well be the biggest weekend of the season so far. The two biggest title contenders finally clash in a long-awaited meeting, but will Leicester or Wolves come out on top? Liverpool also play Manchester City or something apparently.
