Graham Potter has dismissed Tottenham’s Euro humiliation and told his squad: “We’re playing a top team.”

Albion’s head coach was in the stands as Spurs were thumped 7-2 by Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The national spotlight will be on Mauricio Pochettino and his side when they come to the Amex for a televised Premier League game on Saturday (12.30pm).

But Potter does not expect that to adversely affect them.

He told The Argus: “They are that good a team, Mauricio is that good a manager that, whatever the outcome against Bayern Munich they can refocus and be prepared to play Brighton in the Premier League.

“That is what they know.

“There is no advantage for us, regardless of the game.

“They are not going to give us a goal start or anything like that.

“We have to start from the first whistle and be prepared to play against a top team.”

Asked whether the Euro horror could have the opposite effect, and fire Spurs up to prove a point, Potter said: “Who knows? No idea.

“I’m not going to waste too much time worrying about how they are going to be because I can’t do anything about that.

“I have to just focus on us and make sure we are ready to play a really top Premier League game against top opposition.”

Solly March is likely to return after recovering from a thigh injury which ruled him out at Newcastle and Chelsea. Albion will check on Davy Propper.
