Managers Reaction

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel: “We knew before that this was going to be a tough match against a strong side. They come well prepared. It’s always like this. I have not seen one team play a nice match against them, so it was clear we would struggle. We simply have way too many players of whom we don’t know what we can demand. They come from long injuries, they come from Covid. I simply don’t know what they are capable of doing.”

Brighton’s Graham Potter: “I thought it was a fantastic performance from the players. It was full of courage and full of quality against a top side. To come here and be ourselves is a big challenge and I thought we were and that is a credit to the players. They were fantastic tonight.”
