Tottenham manager Antonio Conte: “I’m very pleased about a good performance because we got three points. In this final part of the season, it becomes vital to win games, to get three points, and also because we want to stay very close to the top of the table until the end to try to see what happens. Tonight, it wasn’t easy because we played against a really good team and they played very well. In my opinion, we are playing very well, we’re improving with the ball and tonight also, we showed the solidity defensively and we created many chances to improve the final result.”
Brighton manager Graham Potter: “It was a tough evening. I feel for the players, they’re suffering at the moment. The effort is there completely, they gave everything. It was quite an even game up until they scored and then we made one more mistake for a chance for them, but apart from that, I thought it was even. We responded really well at half-time, pushed them back for the first 10 or 15 minutes of the second half. Then they scored again off a transition and it was very difficult for us.”
