Brighton manager Graham Potter is still looking for ways his side can improve after starting their Premier League campaign in fine fashion with a 3-0 victory at Watford.

The 44-year-old secured his first competitive win in charge of Albion on Saturday as Brighton ended the Hornets' impressive record of being unbeaten on each of the last 12 opening-day fixtures.

The Seagulls took the lead in the 29th minute when Abdoulaye Doucoure turned the ball into his own net before second-half goals from substitutes Florin Andone, with his first touch, and Neal Maupay on debut sealed the win.

Potter, who replaced Chris Hughton as boss this summer, said: "I'm pleased for those guys and for the group collectively because they put a lot of work into that and it's not easy to win away.

"To score three goals and keep a clean sheet is something for us to build on and improve.

"We're not perfect and we're not going to get carried away and we won't get carried away when we don't have a good day."
