Brighton manager Graham Potter claims Tottenham are title contenders

Brighton & Hove Albion manager Graham Potter has praised Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur, claiming that they are coming up against title contenders on Sunday.


The Seagulls will be playing against Spurs on Sunday, with the North London club being the Premier League's top scorers so far ahead of this weekend's action.


This could become an even tougher task for Brighton, with Mourinho looking to bounce back after the disappointing loss to Royal Antwerp on Thursday in the UEFA Europa League.


This defeat will most likely trigger a response from Spurs, and Potter has claimed that Tottenham are the best side he has seen so far this season.


"From what I've seen they are as good as anybody" he said.


He added that Spurs are "Probably the best team I've seen from my analysis. Really balanced in attack and defence. Physicality. Reactions really good. They look a really impressive outfit."


"After doing some analysis of Tottenham, they are fantastic, absolutely. You are looking at top, top players individually and then they have got that amazing understanding of running in behind or dropping into space which top players have."


He concluded by saying "Credit to Tottenham and Jose, they are performing at a really high level."


Potter is likely to make use of former Arsenal and Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck against Spurs, after the Englishman had a good week of training.
