Tottenham Hotspur 2 vs 1 Brighton & Hove Albion highlights 26.12

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho: "The spirit in the second half was so important. We did not start very well, we scored a beautiful goal which was offside and then they went on and scored. Brighton were very difficult to control. Our spirit was fantastic. We made some adjustments in the second half, we equalled their numbers in midfield and that gave us more possession. It was hard until the end but very important.

"We cannot lose two in a row, the work-rate was really brave. I told the boys to focus on this game and to give every last piece of energy we have. I think when you lost a game it hurts. If you are not hurt then you are not committed. You need to be emotionally strong. You need to recover quickly and that did not happen today. It was hard. Fantastic spirit by the players."

On Brighton: "I want to say that Brighton were good - tactically. They can adapt, they can change. They are very dangerous on set-pieces."

Brighton manager Graham Potter, speaking to BBC Sport: "I thought it was quite an even game in terms of shots and chances. You would expect Tottenham to have a bit of pressure. We are disappointed to come away with nothing. Those fine little margins, little details we need to do better.

"I thought we had some good moments in the half and we contributed to a good first-half performance. The little details you need to go your way they didn't. We need to dust ourselves down and go again. We need to stick together, stick to what we are doing and move forward."
