Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta to BBC MOTD: "In the first half we struggled to dominate the game. They proposed a really aggressive game, we struggled to break the press and that caused us problems because there was a lot of transitions and one-on-one situations that we could not deal with.
"We improved a little bit in the second half and had a couple of open situations that could have been big chances.
"We managed to get a point today because we defended the last 15-20 metres of the pitch really well. I think for the rest there is a lot of things we have to get better at."
Brighton boss Graham Potter speaking to Sky Sports: "It is what it is with the result, but the performance was fantastic from us.
"I loved our courage, our quality. It was a wonderful performance and I am really proud of the players.
"As a coach you know that the hard bit is putting the ball in the net but we tried everything.
"The intensity was great, playing out from the back and going into a high press. Going man for man with their high quality players, it was a fantastic performance."
