“[Brighton] can be very disappointed. Teams come here and put players behind the ball but Brighton played as well. There were a few balls that flew across the six yard box and we were quite lucky today.

“But it is the sign of a good team to play poorly and yet still win. Last season we could have come away with a draw from this sort of game. Look at Southampton away earlier this season. We didn’t play well then and we came away with the three points and we’ve done the same again today.

"We had to defend at times but I think we’ve come on from last season. We maybe would have drawn or even lost this game last season.

“And that is what is vitally important – to keep picking up points especially going into this Christmas period, the busiest period of the season. The games are coming thick and fast and you want to pick up points whether you are at home or away."
