Graham Potter is confident results will come for Albion in the Premier League.

But they must improve on their display at Chelsea last time out.

For once, the Seagulls got what they deserved when they left Stamford Bridge empty-handed last Saturday.

Their home haul of two points from a possible nine does not do their performances justice.

Potter would love to change that as Albion chase a first success at the Amex since seeing off Huddersfield seven months ago.

The Albion head coach was asked whether he was confident results would come and replied: “I am.

“It’s the Premier League. Every game is a challenge and difficult.

“We have to keep consistency of performance and to improve those levels and you hope, as a result of that, you get consistent results.

“That is only the thing we can control and that is how we go about our work.

“The players have been really good. They try their best, I can sense that every day.

“That gives you hope and confidence we can carry on improving. They are a good, level-headed group.

“Disappointed, because we feel we could have had more points.

“We don’t sit here and think we are lucky to have what we have.

“You have to just keep going and that is what we will do.

“When we win, we are not the best team in the world and, when we lose, we are not the worst.

“But a consistent approach each day to improve is what we do.”

Potter has been consistent in his belief that defeat at Stamford Bridge was not just down to his team being below their best.

The Albion camp have been keen to keep that result in perspective.

He added: “Results-wise, we want to improve. We were disappointing against Chelsea. We did not play to a level that we can play to.

“At the same time, Chelsea were good as well. We are a little disappointed after that game.

“Newcastle? Happy with the performance, certainly first half. Performance-wise we have been okay, apart from Chelsea, but results wise we would like to get more points.”

Potter was at Tottenham to see them lose 7-2 to Bayern Munich on Tuesday although it is unclear how relevant that freak match will be to tomorrow’s fixture.

But he said it was not all bad from Spurs.

He added: “A disappointing result for them against a top team who were very clinical on the night.

“The margins can go against you and, if Tottenham were as clinical as Bayern, they could have been 3-0 up in the game. That is the level they are working at.

“We focus on ourselves. It is a home game against a top team with a top manager and we have to play well. I was at the game. It was a good game for a neutral.

“Bayern grew into the game and were very clinical. It was not a seven game but that is something that can happen with the quality they have.”

Albion were pressed as effectively as at any time this season when they went to the Bridge.

They were unable to get their passing going and were forced into an error for the first goal.

The word is out on how Albion like to play and Chelsea set an impressive tempo but it is not clear whether Tottenham will match that.

Potter said: “That’s the beauty of the Premier League, every game brings a different dimension.

“Chelsea play differently to Tottenham but, in terms of quality of player, it’s quite similar and we are at home of course, so it’s a bit different. We will have the support.

“But, in terms of intensity of the game and quality opposition, it will be quite similar.”

That support could be an important factor.

Albion will look for a repeat of the early kick-off at home to a wobbling Arsenal two seasons ago, when they were roared to a 2-1 success to add to Arsene Wenger’s woes.

That was one of the finest occasions yet seen at the Amex.

A first win at home under Potter could well match that.

Potter said of Albion’s supporters: “They have been brilliant with us, they have got behind the team.

“They know every game in the Premier is a battle.

“We need their help. No complaints about the supporters, they have been magnificent for us.”
