Brighton boss Potter: Players here have big ambitions

Brighton boss Graham Potter is delighted with the ambitions of his squad.

Potter has already guided the club to a record Premier League points tally this term, which currently stands at 48, and is bidding to secure their maiden top-half finish, with anywhere between eighth and 14th still a possibility.

Seventh-placed West Ham, meanwhile, travel to the south coast bidding to leapfrog Manchester United and snatch Europa League qualification.

Potter is anticipating an entertaining finale to a memorable campaign.

“Our guys are ambitious, they're determined, they want to succeed, they want to do better and it's one game left," he said.

“It's a home game against a top team – a team we have a lot of respect for. I think it's going to be a good game because West Ham have to win.

“A draw isn't going to change anything for them, or even a defeat, in terms of their league position.

“A win is the only way they can get above Manchester United, so that in itself makes it an interesting game.

“You look at the league table and there are a lot of games with stuff riding on them, which is great for the Premier League – it just goes to show that the margins are quite small.

“If we can manage to do it (win) then that would be a points tally we're proud of and a position in the league table to be proud of."
