Brighton should have more Premier League points on the board, defender warns Canaries

Lewis Dunk believes Brighton are progressing well under Graham Potter but the defender has also warned Norwich City that his team should have had more Premier League points on the board.
The Seagulls made the decision to dismiss Chris Hughton at the end of last season, despite the former Canaries boss steering them out of the Championship and to two seasons of top-flight survival.
Potter's expansive style of play at Swansea earned him the job on the south coast, despite his Swansea side finishing 10th in the Championship.
"I think we've done okay so far, but I also think we could have done better too because we've been in with a real chance of getting something from all of our matches so far," said England international Dunk.
"Football works like that sometimes, but you can see that we're improving each week and it's a long season. We know what we want to do and how we want to do it, and we'll keep working hard to reach that.

"We showed it when we went a man down against Aston Villa the other week (a 2-1 away defeat), we moved the ball well and at times they still couldn't get near us. This weekend we got a last minute goal ourselves (in a 3-2 home win over Everton) and got our rewards, so we'll keep improving and see where it takes us."
The Seagulls are 14th with 12 points from 10 games, five places and five points better off than Norwich ahead of Saturday's game at the Amex Stadium, following Saturday's win over Everton, thanks to a Lucas Digne own goal during injury-time.

"We're flexible and it's something I'm really enjoying - he's going to bring my game on massively," Dunk continued, speaking to his club's official website.
"I think that will be the case for the whole side, but from my perspective he's definitely had an impact - hopefully he can continue to coach me and guide me to becoming a better player. We all work hard under him every day in training, and from a defender's perspective you can see what we want to do and how we are comfortable playing it out from the back."
