Liverpool v Brighton: Potter hails Anfield aces as the best

A victory on Saturday would further underline Brighton's credentials and they are no strangers to claiming notable results at Anfield after triumphing on their last visit to the ground in February.

A lot has changed since Steven Alzate's second-half strike handed the Seagulls all three points that day, with Liverpool having returned to top form this season, as they are unbeaten in their 14 matches to date across all competitions, claiming 11 wins and three draws.

Potter, who confirmed defender Dan Burn will miss Saturday's match with a knee injury, is certainly full of respect for Jurgen Klopp's side and he knows his own team will face a stern test of their credentials this weekend.

"We're facing the best team in the world," Potter told reporters at his pre-match press conference. "They attack so well, it's a great test, a great challenge. We're looking forward to it."

Potter looking for more

Brighton have earned plaudits for the style of football they have played so far this season, although after scoring just one goal across their previous three league games, Potter knows they still have work to do in the final third.

"I looked at how we attacked yesterday and thought it was really good," Potter said reflecting on Wednesday's penalty shootout defeat to Leicester City in the fourth round of the EFL Cup.

"Maybe goals-wise, not so many recently and we can improve, but the guys are working really hard. It's about keeping consistent, but there's a real desire in the group."
