Graham Potter must lift his players for a South Coast six-pointer after seeing a famous win slip away.

The Seagulls lost 2-1 at Tottenham to slip to 15th in the Premier League.

They are level on points with Bournemouth, who visit the Amex tomorrow (12.30pm).

Goals from England duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli in the second half left a much-changed team empty-handed.

Potter made five alterations to his starting XI and saw his side go ahead through an Adam Webster header.

Lewis Dunk missed the game with illness and Potter said Martin Montoya “rolled an ankle”, although he was fit enough for the bench.

Ezequiel Schelotto made his first start since the closing day of the 2017-18 campaign, Bernardo came into the XI for only the second time this season and top scorer Neal Maupay and Davy Propper were both on the bench.

Potter said: “We have a lot of positives to take again. It’s frustrating again but we have to take that frustration into Bournemouth in a few hours’ time.”

Like some of his big name Prem counterparts, Potter is unhappy with the schedule.

He added: “In terms of being able to select a team and then be able to select the same players, it is very difficult.

“The scientists and people who know about recovery would say it is not good. That’s the Premier League, that’s the rule and we have to deal with it.

"I have heard Jurgen Klopp, Brendan Rodgers and Jose Mourinho and they are all far more experienced than me and I don’t disagree with them.”
