Brighton manager Graham Potter on BBC Radio 5 Live: "We have faced some tough games in some tough moments but we have been together. In the Premier League, the margins are so small and pressure starts to mount but you have to come through that.
"The players have been a joy to work with, we are delighted we have the points we need and we have not had to rely on anyone else. It has been a long lockdown period analysing, planning and thinking what you might need.
"Everyone was talking about how difficult our run was, so it was just about staying focused on what we had to do. I'm really proud of the players and they have responded to some pressure moments and got the results."
Newcastle manager Steve Bruce on Sky Sports: "That's our 10th game in 35 days. We have got a lot of tired bodies. We can't rotate like some others can. Andy Carroll is beating himself up, he knows he should have scored the winner.
"I let other people reflect on that [how the season has gone]. It's been difficult for everyone concerned, and we've done OK. I would have taken 44 points. I think we were safe when we beat Southampton in March.
"In every interview for 15 weeks I've been asked the same thing [about the takeover delay]. We need a bit of clarity. Until then I'll go to work and see the CEO and plan for the summer. That's all we can do. It's frustrating."
