Brighton head coach Graham Potter says his side must take the positives and learn from their 2-1 defeat to Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Seagulls were unfortunate not to leave Old Trafford with at least a share of the spoils after a determined performance.

We just need to move forward to the last eight games and get the points we need.

Potter's men took the lead through Danny Welbeck, with the former United striker firing past Dean Henderson in the 13th minute.

Welbeck's fourth goal against United since he left the club seven years ago put Brighton in command, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side drew level through Marcus Rashford in the 62nd minute.

Just as the game looked to be heading for a draw, Mason Greenwood headed home with seven minutes remaining.

Sunday's defeat means Brighton remain within touching distance of the bottom three, with Fulham still six points behind them.

Potter's side do have a game in hand and the former Swansea boss says there is no reason to panic after such a spirited display.

He told the club's official website: "It's a tough one for us. In the first half, we played well and carried a threat. We restricted them to not too many chances at all, but they scored from the opportunities they had.

"The quality they have has done us in the end, but there are a lot of positives for us to take. We just need to move forward to the last eight games and get the points we need."

Albion face Everton in their next Premier League encounter and they are 2.10 to win, the draw is 3.40 and the Toffees are 3.50 to pick up all three points at the Amex Stadium.
