Graham Potter has praised the unsung side of teen striker Aaron Connolly.

But the head coach believes Albion can get more out of his pairing with top scorer Neal Maupay.

Connolly made headlines in the 3-2 win over Everton as the player involved in a controversial penalty decision.

He also caught the eye with his hold-up play with defenders tight to him.

And that pleased Potter in a hard-fought win.

The Seagulls boss said: “I use the word surprising because he is known for running in behind.

“But, if you play the balls into him, he is good enough to link up.

“Then, his work for the team is really good as a young player.

“Him and Neal are a handful.

“I think you are always in the game with those two.

“We didn’t probably use them as well as we could.

“There are some things the opposition did well and some things we didn’t do so well.”

Leandro Trossard is pushing for a start at home to Norwich on Saturday after coming off the bench against Everton.

But his inclusion could mean a tough decision for Potter regarding one of his front two or Pascal Gross.

The German opened his account for the season from a free-kick forced by Connolly's industry.
