The Blades have been by far the worst team in the top flight this season, and yet Albion were unable to find a way past them in a sobering 1-0 defeat.

The Seagulls are still seven points clear of danger with five games left to play, but manager Graham Potter is under no illusions when it comes to the threat that his side are still facing.

Speaking after Saturday’s result, he said: “It doesn’t feel comfortable to me because we need more points, it’s as simple as that. And we want to try to get more points.

“If we had won (at Sheffield United) then of course we look like accumulating quite a decent total, but now we just focus on Saturday.

“It’s not enough because there’s a lot of points to play for. We have to just focus on one game at a time. Every opponent is fighting for something.

"We are at that stage of the season where everyone is fighting for something, even if it is pride like Sheffield United.

“I think all the games we have to play we can be competitive in, and we have proved that, and we have got a chance to get points in all of those games – but equally we could lose.”
