Cape Town - Brighton defender Shane Duffy wants his team-mates to be excited about facing some of the Premier League's top sides in the final weeks of the season.

The Seagulls are still in the thick of the relegation fight despite sitting in 13th position in the standings. They are only seven points clear of the bottom three with five games left to play.

Brighton also have one of the most challenging run of fixtures they've had all season. In their last five games, they will face Tottenham, Burnley, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Liverpool.

Duffy said, according to the club's official website: "For a club like this, it’s something that you’ve got to take in your stride and look forward to.

"What a week our last week is. It may be tough, but this is why we’re in the Premier League.

"It’s something that I'm looking forward to and the lads are really up for it. We’re delighted we’ve got these games all at once.

"The adrenaline is going to be high and you’re going to want to play the best game of your life against all of them."
