Albion head coach Graham Potter was proud of his side for their performance in their 1-0 defeat to Manchester City.

The Seagulls defended well and kept the scores level until the 44th minute.

They also had chances to get back level, but just could not find that finishing touch.

Given City had scored 15 goals in their previous five games in all competitions, Albion did well to keep it to just the one.

And Potter heaped praise on his side for their performance against City.

He said: "Well we are disappointed to come away with nothing.

"In any game you want to try and get something from the match, but we were playing against a top team, a top opponent.

"I thought our players were fantastic they gave everything, left everything on the pitch, which is ultimately all you can ask for and if the opponents are better on the day then that's how it is.

"But our boys gave everything, they showed good personality and good character when we had the chance.

"I think sometimes you have to suffer here of course because they are so good and we did that and defended with out lives, defended as a team and tried to attack them.

"I am so proud of them!"
