Graham Potter wants to turn Albion's test by the champions into a Gala occasion.

The Seagulls head coach says there has to be a chance his side can stun Manchester City at the Etihad today.

If they do, it will be up there with his finest success as a boss, when his Swedish club Ostersunds knocked Galatasaray out of Europe.

Albion have been quoted as 35-1 no-hopers to win today’s Premier League contest.

Potter said: “So, if we play them 35 times, there’s a chance we can win one?

“I think that just reflects how good they are and how many points they have got over a period of time.

“And you don’t do that by accident. They are just a top team.

“Also, if you look at how a club like ours has fared against the top teams then it’s easy odds to give out. I can understand it. But that doesn’t mean we can’t go there and win. You have to believe.

“I think it’s a bit sad for football to think otherwise.

“Of course, you have to be respectful for what they have achieved but you always have to believe there’s a possibility.

“That’s what’s great about football. If you lose that, then it becomes a bit dull.”

Asked what has been his biggest against-the-odds win as a manager, Potter said: “I would probably say Ostersund beating Galatasaray in the Europa League over two legs.

“In terms of the turnovers of the clubs and the history and tradition of a club like Galatasaray in European football, for a club like Ostersund to win over two games was a big one.”
