Neal Maupay has had the ‘biggest transformation’ in the way he deals with setbacks, according to head coach Graham Potter.
The Frenchman missed a penalty against Norwich City in last Saturday’s 0-0 draw, but Potter says that the striker has quickly put any frustration behind him.
“He's been fine this week, really good. Neal has grown as a person so he can deal with those setbacks that the Premier League throws at you a lot better.
“It’s probably the biggest transformation I have seen in my career, in terms of a player dealing with that. So it is huge credit to him.”

The 25-year-old was given a rousing reception from Albion fans as he made his way around the pitch after being substituted against Norwich.
“I think the reason why the supporters were so good to him was they recognise how much effort he puts in for the team and doing his best for Brighton,” said Potter.
“He has had some fantastic moments, they [the fans] all remember Crystal Palace away, West Ham away, Southampton away this season. Sometimes you have to support a guy when he is not having his best day.”
