Graham Potter has told Albion to believe they can win Premier League matches.

But the Seagulls boss says he is “baffled” by any suggestion they have a “divine right” to beat teams among the elite.

Albion aim for a second win of the season when they go to Tottenham on Sunday.

Potter was on the front foot in his media session yesterday as Albion aim to bounce back from a below-par second half in the draw versus West Brom on Monday.

He said his players are a “great bunch” with an awareness of the challenge they face in the Prem.

Potter said: “We have to believe we can win a football match and I always maintain that.

“Also, the challenge as a club and as a team is: Have we the humility to understand the competition we are in?

“Or do we think we are have a divine right to win football matches in the Premier League because we are Brighton?

“That sort of baffles me a little bit but I certainly don’t get that from the players.

“The players are a fantastic bunch. I think we have got one of the youngest teams in the Premier League.

“We are going through a process of trying to establish ourselves and a pattern of play and a style of play in the most difficult league in the world.

“We have to understand that and any game is difficult for us.

“Every game is a fight, every game is one we have to do our best in and get a bit of luck in and always respect the opponent.”

Davy Propper could come into contention to face Spurs after recovering from an Achilles problem.

But Alireza Jahanbakhsh (hamstring) is likely to miss out.
