Brighton manager Graham Potter will not let his players rest on their laurels despite picking up "a big three points" thanks to Saturday's 1-0 Premier League win over Norwich at Carrow Road.

Belgian midfielder Leandro Trossard scored the only goal of the game in the first half as the Seagulls held firm against the division's bottom club, who have now failed to score in eight of their last nine league matches.

We have five more games to go and are still fighting for the points.

Trossard also notched in Brighton's 2-0 win over the Canaries in November's reverse fixture and his strike at Carrow Road moved the Seagulls up to 36 points from 33 matches.

Norwich remain six points adrift at the bottom and Daniel Farke's men look increasingly likely to be back in the Championship next season.

Brighton had themselves been sliding towards relegation danger after a ten-game winless run but they stopped the rot last month with a 2-1 home win over Arsenal and a goalless draw at Leicester.

The victory at Carrow Road gives them even more breathing space but Potter insisted that the job is not done yet, especially as their next two opponents are the Premier League's top two, Liverpool and Manchester City.

After the Norwich game, the Brighton boss told BT Sport: "The result is the most important thing and we are absolutely delighted [with] a big three points.

"We have five more games to go and are still fighting for the points. We have to understand we're in a strange situation. Thirty-six points is a decent total but we need more."

Brighton are 6.00 to beat 1.57 visitors Liverpool on Wednesday, with the draw 4.10.
