Graham Potter wary of Arsenal reaction

Brighton boss Graham Potter is expecting a difficult contest when his club travel to Arsenal on Thursday for a Premier League clash.

Arsenal are getting to grips with life under interim boss Freddie Ljunberg after firing head coach Unai Emery last week.

The former Sweden winger, who also played for Arsenal, oversaw a 2-2 draw at Norwich during his first game in charge and will be looking to carve out a first home win against the Seagulls.

Potter said: “Arsenal are going through a transition after losing Mr Wenger, who had been there for over 20 years, and results haven't gone as they would've liked with their previous coach.

“But they are still a top club with high-quality footballers and they will be looking for a really positive reaction.

“Freddie Ljungberg is in charge and knows the game well, so we're expecting another difficult contest. He has just had one game at Norwich and will be looking to change some things again.

“It's not easy to second guess that, so we just need to focus on ourselves and make sure we're at the level we need to be to get a result at a top football club,” he added.
