Brighton manager Graham Potter: “It’s frustrating, but that can happen sometimes in football. You’ve got to look at the overall performance from the players, which was fantastic.” he added. “They played really well, created chances, they were brave because the way Leeds defend, you have to use your spare man, which is usually your center-backs, I thought they did that well. I’m really happy with the way the team played.”
Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa: “In the first half, the differences were clear, and in the second half the game was even with opportunities for both teams. We improved in all our lines.” he added. “It wasn’t a question of individualities, some circumstances came to happen. In the first half, there was a lack of coordination and there were a lot of things to correct. When there’s a lot to change, if the performances change, then you notice it.”
