Brighton ‘chasing’ Leeds United target

The Seagulls host the Magpies on the south coast in a clash between two teams that impressed immensely last time out.

While Brighton humbled Manchester United with a 2-1 win at Old Trafford on Sunday, Newcastle showed their class with a dominating 2-0 victory over new top flight boys Nottingham Forest at St. James’ Park.

In particular, Albion’s result provided even more proof to many onlookers that manager Graham Potter is one of the most astute talents in the division.

Indeed, last weekend’s result even led former Brighton boss Gus Poyet to suggest Potter had earned his chance to manage an elite club.

“I hope Potter gets the chance to coach at a top football club. That’s what we ask as a coach, give us a chance.

“Potter has proven himself to be quality in the Premier League as he progressed from relegation-fighting to the top 10 and if he can repeat his previous season he deserves a chance at a top-flight team.

“Potter won’t have time at the top, compared to Brighton where he can build his team over a long period.

“Potter can stay at Brighton for life, I know the personality and character Brighton are looking for and Potter is perfect. With all due respect to the President, sorry, you have to let Potter grow if he wishes.
