You can only sue if you can prove the council has received sufficient warning about the pot-hole being there. In all other cases they will simply claim "we have x thousand yards of road to maintain, this pothole was not there at our last inspection x days ago. We have not received any warning from anyone else" A judge will then probably go with them on this as a council cannot reasonably be expected to inspect all roads within its district every day.
