Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho, speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "It wasn't a surprise because I knew Brighton were a very good team with a very good coach. They created lots of difficulties but we had a very good reaction after they equalised."
On Brighton's controversial equaliser: "I have to try and stay away from this. I don't know what to say."
On Gareth Bale's winner: "We were in need of a goal and I've been telling you for a couple of weeks that Bale is improving. I know he doesn't have 90 minutes of Premier League in his legs.
"The good thing with him is he is very intelligent, very experienced and very Tottenham. He understands.
"We are using the Europa League matches to improve his condition and today he scored a winning goal, which is a great feeling for the team. It's also a great feeling for the fans because Tottenham fans love Gareth."
Brighton boss Graham Potter: "There is a little bit of a talking point about our penalty decision. It is another conversation around refereeing and VAR, which I am not too interested in.
"I can't control what they do, when I saw them live I wasn't sure about Harry Kane's one. I'd rather focus on our performance, it was really, really good.
"I'm disappointed with the result, but really pleased with the positives. We pushed Tottenham hard and are disappointed to come away with nothing."
