Brighton manager Graham Potter: "It's pleasing to get three points against a team that carry a threat."We had to be disciplined and we were.
"We needed patience and understanding playing against side that carries a threat."
The victory puts Brighton in the top 10 but leaves Norwich still struggling to adapt to life in the Premier League under manager Daniel Farke.
The German said: "You have to have a mentality like selling Hoovers - you have to knock on many doors.
"The task is like I said at the beginning - it's about climbing Mount Everest. Clubs spent money, even Sheffield United spent money - we weren't able to do it.
"It's a tough period right now."
