Although Mikel Arteta’s side bounced back as they won 3-1 against Chelsea on Boxing Day, Potter’s side could still drag them back into trouble.

“I don’t want to worry about what others are doing,” Potter said. “They’ve had a good result so they’ll be in a good moment, with a good feeling.

“We need to play well, we want to turn around our home form and finish the year strongly.

“Every game’s different. You have to respect the opponent and what they bring but you try to play your game as best as you can and take what your opponent throws at you.”

Although Brighton have already won against Arsenal last season, Potter insists that will have no bearing on Tuesday's game.

“None whatsoever. I don’t think those games count for anything,” he added. “It was a big game for us, a big result.

“It was probably a big game for them because they made some changes and went on to do well at the back end of last season. They are a team with lots of talent, with a coach who I really like.

“They’ve been going through a tough period but obviously the result in the last game has helped them and they’ll come to the Amex looking for a victory.”

Adam Lallana and Tariq Lamptey are both unavailable for Potter on Tuesday as they are still recovering from injuries.
