    Brighton boss Graham Potter says 19-year-old Aaron Connolly needs to be protected following his rapid rise from academy prospect to making his debut for the Republic of Ireland.

    He also scored a brace against Tottenham on his Premier League debut.

    "He's had quite a couple of weeks, hasn't he? We have to look after him, make sure that he has a long successful career," said Potter.

    "But he was great in the (Spurs) game for us, not just his goals, I thought his overall contribution to the team was really good, pressed well, defended well.

    "And then just for him to get that international debut, it's fantastic for him - disappointed obviously for him and the Irish boys that the result wasn't what they wanted."

    "He's intelligent and articulate."

    “I really feel the mentality in the building is ‘let’s fight through this’. I don’t want us to be one of those teams that allows a situation like this escalate and eventually bring us down. I want us to all stand up and push through it and that’s the feeling from everyone here."
