WEST Ham boss David Moyes feels Brighton fans should count themselves “really lucky” to have Graham Potter in charge.

Following Saturday’s goalless draw with Leeds at the Amex Stadium, there was booing from some of the home support as the Seagulls saw their winless run in the Premier League extended to eight matches.

Boss Potter was left “a little bit perplexed” by the negative reaction, later suggesting those fans who did vent their frustrations could have found themselves somewhat caught up in the moment.

Albion head to the London Stadium on Wednesday night sitting ninth in the table.

Moyes believes Potter deserves full credit for the way he has continued to move the club forwards.

“They are really lucky to have Graham Potter as manager and you shouldn’t forget that,” said Moyes. “He is a top manager, has got a really good team.

“We all get booed at times in our career.

"You just have to move on and I’m sure Graham knows what he is doing more than the people who booed.”
