Speaking after the match, Seagulls manager Gus Poyet was quoted as saying: "I feel bad because we were a little bit too slow today. We thought sooner or later we'd have chances and we were just waiting. Sometimes you convince the players to be patient and maybe today we missed a bit of acceleration. You have to give credit to them because they planned the game and they played one way. We put them under pressure at the end. They did what they had to do and they beat us. The results today were quite scary. I don't know if the opposition don't want to catch us but they're doing everything possible not to".
