Managers Reaction 

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte: “For sure it’s not a good result for us. A lesson we can learn today is that there are games where if you’re not able to win, you’re not to lose. It was very clear that today wasn’t our day. I understand we want to try to get three points before our other rivals in the race for the Champions League but sometimes we need to feel.”

Brighton boss Graham Potter: “It feels better than Arsenal. I thought the performance was a step up. The players were incredible, with work rate and discipline. We had a good organization and attitude to run and defend and be brave when we had the ball as well. It wasn’t a smash and grab game. We were playing against a lot of world-class players and a team in a good moment so we had to be good today. 40 points with six games to go. Not so bad considering it was Armageddon three games ago! It was only fair if we beat Arsenal; we have to go to Spurs and beat them.”
