Graham Potter admitted that he and Brighton have to improve despite giving Liverpool a good game.

Brighton fell two goals behind early on against the champions, but battled back to cause problems for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

However, they ultimately lost 3-1 – and while it appears they should be safe from relegation, Potter took responsibility for the defeat and insisted that there must be improvements.

Potter told Sky Sports: “We played well, over the course of the game we gave a good account of ourselves – good personality after going 2-0 down in the manner we did.

“Great personality to drag ourselves back into the game and created chances before we scored a really good goal. There are positives and things we need to learn from, we have to improve as well and that includes myself.

“It’s my responsibility. You’re going to get mistakes in football. Our decision making can improve. We wanted to be brave and play our game against the best, it’s the way to learn and improve.

“The way we responded was really good. The boys gave everything and I am really happy with them.

“It doesn’t help when you give them a start but overall we had some good opportunities. The players got themselves back in, lesser teams could have crumbled and we didn’t.”
