Brighton manager Graham Potter was pleased with his team’s response to a Manchester City side that made league leaders Chelsea appear ‘ordinary’.
At the Amex Stadium on Saturday night, City raced to a three-goal lead before holding off a more spirited response from the hosts to win 4-1. Following their. 7-0 hammering of Norwich, they are two points behind early leaders Chelsea, who are looking to repeat their Champions League final victory in May.
Brighton manager Graham Potter was not so brazen as to believe that the score at halftime had no bearing on how the second half played out.
However, he was still pleased with his team’s ability to cause. Pep Guardiola’s side problems that they had not been able to do in the first half, citing their performances against Chelsea and Liverpool earlier this season.
“I believe we were simply a little more positive in the middle of the pitch. And perhaps we were a little bit better there. We posed a greater threat to their defense. That would be my initial reaction “he stated
“You also have to raise your hands and emphasize that the opponent at. 0-0 is a different opponent at 3-0.” I saw. Man City play at Chelsea and they looked like an ordinary team – and they are the European champions. They went to Anfield and, with the exception of Mo Salah, were outstanding.
“We can always improve, but you have to give the opponent credit for making things extremely difficult for us.”
