The 20-year-old Lampte has made a vague start to his Premier League career and used another excellent performance at Tottenham last Sunday with his first goal for the club.
The former Chelsea man was a threat to the Spurs defense all evening and holed to the Albion level at night when he went home peacefully in the second half after a fine assist from Pascal Gross.
Unfortunately for the Seagulls, Tottenham’s second-half substitute Gareth Bale stole all three points for the hosts when his well-placed header won 2-1.
Despite the tragic outcome, Lampett was once again one of the best players on the pitch, as he was given his Brighton debut in Leicester by Potter late last season.
Wing back played a big role in helping Albion maintain their top flight position and he has launched a new campaign in the same classy way.
His speed and skill cause big problems for defenders and he is currently the toughest player in the Premier League. He was also shortlisted for the Premier League September Player of the Month award.
But what impresses is his calmness and his ability to pass or finish right at important moments – the unusual quality of a player’s age and his speed.
Wayne Rooney recently released Lampte because a player who should be signed by Man United has not gone unnoticed, while Byron Munich, Seville and now Atletico Madrid are believed to be keen for England’s Under-21 international match.
Lampet joined the Seagulls from Chelsea last January for just 3 million and his current contract runs until June 2023.
Asked if the club was reading a new contract for Lampte, Potter was asked, “We have fun with Tariq.” “It’s great to see a young player like him come and get a chance.
“He fits in really well with our club and our team. Many young players have made their debut in Premier League football and it’s important to have role models like them.
“For someone like us, there is an atmosphere for them to come and enjoy their football. This is a must for Tariq and he takes care of everything else.
“The most important thing is that we create an environment that he wants to be a part of and he enjoys his football. Then he will show his quality.”
Lampte will be hoping to return to Brighton’s action this Friday, giving Burnley a struggling welcome at Ambian Amex Stadium.
