Graham Potter says he can understand Jurgen Klopp’s complaints about kick-off time at the Amex.

But the Albion head coach says fixture scheduling to please both TV companies and clubs is a complex issue.

He also underlined his support for a change to allow five substitutions per team per match in the Premier League.

The Seagulls host Liverpool on Saturday at 12.30pm in what is a lunchtime kick-off for the domestic audience but primetime Saturday evening viewing for some of the league’s international markets.

Klopp feels teams who play in Europe on Wednesday evening should then not have the first game on Saturday.

He said his team's current schedule is "nearly a crime" after seeing them lose to Atalanta last night.

Potter said today: “I can understand where he is coming from.

“I also get the challenge of TV and revenue and all the rest of the things.

“Certainly, most top teams have got challenges with Europe.

“That’s why I voted at the start for five subs.

“It doesn’t necessarily fix the problem, but it can help.

“Unfortunately, we didn’t pass that through as a league.

“Historically and culturally in this league, we are used to Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday.

“It’s part of the challenge of playing over here in the UK.

“The bit from Jurgen which I get is 12.30 seems an extreme one when you are playing at 8pm on Wednesday.
