On Sunday, Brighton travel to St James Park for their second Premier League match of the season but before then they play Portsmouth at home.

Whilst Newcastle United have a Saturday, Tuesday, Sunday start to the season, Brighton appear to have been dealt a not so kind Monday, Thursday, Sunday set of matches, giving them two less days of preparation for the second Premier League match.

Despite that, Graham Potter is claiming that the scheduling of matches is no negative for him and his Brighton team.

Graham Potter watched on as his team lost 3-1 to Chelsea on Monday night, despite the south coast team having more possession, shots and corners.

It is pretty much the closest that Brighton have got to a local derby (50 miles between Brighton and Portsmouth) and after tonight’s televised second round clash, the League Cup fourth round draw will be made.

“It is not a Premier League game and that brings certain other challenges, but we want to try to focus on every game like it is the same, we want to try to be organised, we want to be balanced, we want to win.

Interesting to see how many changes Graham Potter will make tonight and he claims the usual putting a strong side out etc but also admits a number of the under 23s squad will be involved.
