Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: "It was unnecessary [for the game to be nervy at the end], of course, because we had unbelievable chances. Their keeper made some good saves.
"It was difficult this game because Brighton are a good football side. They had a lot of possession and we had to work really hard.
"I loved that the boys were prepared to do that after a busy week."
Brighton boss Graham Potter: "There were lots of positives for us. In the first 10-15 minutes we weren't quite as aggressive and didn't have the belief we needed.
"We gave a really good account of ourselves against a top team. We are disappointed because we came away with nothing but with the performance and the effort, we could have come away with something.
"We had good chances at 2-0 down. Virgil van Dijk was so powerful in his two actions for their goals and we weren't as good. That's the reality.
"But over the 90 minutes we put so much into the game and we need to take that forward and carry on improving."
