Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick: “We gave them too much time, too much space. We couldn’t get into a position to stop them from playing through our lines. The game plan was completely different. We told the players to be as compact as possible and then to release pressure on them. We couldn’t stop them. I don’t think the players ignored the game plan but they weren’t able to stop them. We gave them too much space and time. When you give technically good players this space, this is what can happen.”
Brighton boss Graham Potter: “It was nice to give the supporters a performance and a memory, so we’re delighted. We played well from the start and I thought we were the better team. The boys did everything they could in terms of what we asked them to do. They defended well, pressed well, created some danger, and were brave on the ball. It was a fantastic performance. We’re on 47 points now, which is an improvement. We’re really happy. It is a special day. United are a top side and we’ve let our home fans down this season, so it was a nice moment.”
