Brighton boss Potter: We gave everything for West Ham draw

Brighton boss Graham Potter was happy with their 1-1 draw against West Ham.

Danny Welbeck scored his sixth goal of the season and 50th in the Premier League to put the home side ahead in the 84th minute, but the Hammers made it 1-1 four minutes later through substitute Said Benrahma.

“I'm disappointed because we scored late and then they equalised but overall I can't complain too much about the draw," said Potter. “The boys gave everything against a tough opponent.

"I thought they were more dangerous in the first half and we had too long out of possession and too long defending.

“But we have got better in the second half. The players responded against a team having a good season and we were perhaps the better side, I was happy with the overall performance.

“The boys played with intent and gave everything. You look at West Ham and they have invested a lot over a few transfer windows and have had a great season, and David Moyes deserves a lot of credit to get them challenging for a European place."
