‘The fans are entitled to their opinions but I disagree with them. You have to understand the game, who we played and what we did.
‘We are sitting eighth in the Premier League but maybe I need a history lesson on this club.’
Potter’s high-flying Seagulls got off to a firing start to the season as their first five games produced four wins but Brighton have suffered a poor run as their last eight games have left them without a win.
The stalemate was the sixth draw during Albion’s run without victory but was sufficient to move them up a place to eighth, just one point behind Tottenham.
