Brighton boss Graham Potter says their draw against Burnley has topped off a ‘fantastic week’ for the club.

On Sunday, the Seagulls beat Jose Mourinho’s Spurs at the Amex Stadium.

They then travelled to Anfield on Wednesday and gained a huge three points against the reigning Premier League champions.

Earlier today, the Seagulls picked up a point at Turf Moor.

Club captain Lewis Dunk put them ahead in the first half. He headed home after being found unmarked in the box.

Burnley’s Johann Gudmundsson failed to head off the line. The Iceland winger managed to make up for his mistake by equalising in the second half.

Speaking after the draw, Potter told reporters: “A hard earned point. A tough game against a good opponent. They pushed us all the way in the second half and I can’t say we deserved more than a point.

“It has been a fantastic week for us, seven points and we move forward.

“I felt the game had gotten away from us a bit in the second half, credit to Burnley for that.

“We’ve had a week where we have had seven points. That makes a difference for us. We can’t play well every week and in every game.”

Defender Adam Webster went off injured during the match. Speaking about the player, Potter continued: “Webster is not too bad, he just rolled his ankle. The initial signs are encouraging.”

The Seagulls are gradually clawing themselves away from the relegation zone. They’ve now gone six games unbeaten, which also includes a victory against Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United.

After 22 matches they’ve reached 25 points under Potter. They’re currently ten points ahead of Fulham, who are in 18th.

The Seagulls play Leicester City in their next match on Wednesday 10th February.
