Premier League sack race: The top 10 favourites
9. Graham Potter
The Seagulls had a strange season last time out. There first half of the season showed some real glimmers of talent, with wins against Arsenal, Tottenham, and Everton – after the Christmas break as well as the COVID-19 lockdown, there form appeared to dip and the club ended up finishing in 15th. This may have something to do with Potter’s place in the sack race, and rightly so.
Brighton have a great squad and in my opinion, should be finishing higher than 15th, and Potter will need to make sure that at least a mid-table finish is achieved to ensure his job at the club is safe. New signings such as Joel Veltman and Adam Lallana add a certain new quality to the squad – and Potter will be hoping that they adapt and adjust quickly to keep him at the club.
