Brighton's experienced Cumbrian frontman Glenn Murray believes the Seagulls are on “a constant learning curve” as they prepare to take on Tottenham.

The former Carlisle United and Workington Reds man is looking forward to facing Spurs on Saturday and then having more time on the training ground throughout the international break.

He says there is still work to do to hone the playing style, preferred by head coach Graham Potter.

Maryport-born Murray has also responded to a suggestion Albion seemed reticent over going for goal from dangerous positions in recent games at Newcastle and Chelsea.

Albion would love to sign-off for the fortnight gap in fixtures with a first home win for Potter, and only a second league success anywhere since March against Mauricio Pochettino’s team who, last night, were beaten 7-2 by Bayern Munich.

Much has changed in those intervening months and Murray says, although progress has been made, there is still work to do.

“It’s all a huge learning curve,” 36-year-old Murray told The Argus.

“We have come so far in the three months the gaffer has been with us and we are going to have afternoons like this [the 2-0 defeat at Chelsea on Saturday].

"But we will keep doing it our way and, hopefully, we have more successful afternoons than not.

“It’s full focus on Tottenham, looking towards picking some points up and then another international break, which is more time to learn the philosophy and get it right.

“It’s a constant learning curve.

"Obviously, opponents we come up against are different every week and there are different ways of trying to break them down and get possession of the ball and control the game.”

Murray, who also counts Barrow, Rochdale and Crystal Palace among his former clubs, spoke about suggestions Albion players might have gone for goal more readily.

“I don’t think the players are restricted at all,” he said. “We are trying to play a brand of football and, ultimately, whoever is on the ball, it’s their decision to make out there.

"You say we could have pulled the trigger a couple of times. [But], obviously, the person in possession felt it wasn’t quite the right moment and felt there was a better option on.”

Brighton currently sit 16th in the Premier League table.
