Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl: “It’s a horrible feeling and tomorrow it will be even harder. We’re not the first team to concede as late as this but it was absolutely not necessary.” he added. “It’s always a possibility when you’re only one up, as long as you don’t score the second goal, there’s always a chance of conceding and this is why we’re obviously very disappointed.”
Brighton boss Graham Potter: “I’m not shocked. We have belief as a team and the one thing I don’t doubt is the character and spirit of the players and their willingness to go to the end.” he added. “Our first-half performance was below par and Southampton deserved to go in ahead. We got better in the second half. To go for 10 minutes with 10 men, the players showed real spirit to take something from the game.”
