Connolly angry with himself, says Potter

Brighton's boss has spoken about Connolly's anger after being substituted.

Aaron Connolly

was included in the starting line up of


 against Liverpool earlier this weekend. He caused Liverpool lots of trouble as he got a penalty for his team which Maupay missed.

However, just like Mo Salah, he was subbed off and apparently, he was not pleased with the decision of Potter. It was obvious from his reactions on the stands. Potter however says that it is not a big deal and the player was probably angry with himself for missing an important chance.

“That’s Aaron,"

said Albion head coach

Graham Potter

when asked about his striker's reaction to being hooked.

"I think he was a little frustrated he missed his chance in the first half and he wanted to stay on.

“In the last three or four weeks, he has had a bit of up and down stuff with his injury, with his hamstring.

"He missed some international games. He was running around such a lot.

“I thought he had a really impactful hour and it’s a decision to maybe err on the side of caution with him.

“We pushed Danny (Welbeck) a little bit higher up because Danny had gone a little bit deeper at that point.

“I thought Aaron was great. He did exactly what we wanted him to do.

“We wanted him to run in behind, test their backline and their defense and I thought he helped us do that, with him and Danny.

“His chance early in the game probably changed the dynamic of the game."
