Burnley boss Sean Dyche told Sky Sports: “[The performance] is certainly up there. The change in mentality has been clear since the Arsenal game. The last four performances have led to this one, we’ve been decent in all of them and only got three points, but they were of course against the top sides. We came out today with the right mentality, performance level, and the right detail. The details were right today in both boxes, the energy and belief were right, but the details were massive, we delivered them very well today.”
Brighton boss Graham Potter told Sky Sports: “It’s a disappointing performance and result. You have to say congratulations to Burnley, they deserved that thoroughly. We weren’t good, I have to take responsibility for that. In defense of the team, it doesn’t happen very often, but we have to be honest and say we weren’t at our best. When you are like that in the Premier League, you can lose.”
