Hughton wary of Saints threat

14th September 2018, 11:27 by Gareth Freeman

Brighton boss Chris Hughton expects to come up against a confident Southampton outfit when his side head to St Mary's on Monday.

Saints downed the Seagulls in the Carabao Cup at the end of last month and then claimed a first Premier League win of the campaign at Crystal Palace.

Brighton face fixtures against Spurs and Manchester City after their trip to St Mary's and Hughton feels his side can pick up points against the big guns, but he stressed he is not looking past Southampton.

He told The Argus: "I'd like to think we look at every game as a game you can win. There are of course different degrees of difficulty. When you're playing against a top six team, we all know how difficult they can be.

"I'd like to think our approach to every game is exactly the same. Southampton are on the back of a very good win in their last game [at Crystal Palace] and are a team I'm sure will be playing with a lot of confidence.

"What we can't do is underestimate the qualities they have got. They have got a very good squad and a very good team.

"We will have to play at the levels that we have done in the last three games to give ourselves a chance.

"But every game we play in, we would look at as an opportunity to get something."
