“It has been a difficult run for us recently, so we knew the importance of this game, we were desperate to win,” Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe. He told Sky Sports News.
“It has been a frustrating second half of the season. We started so well that we felt we could really go on and achieve special things and it hasn’t really materialized.
“Our squad has been really stretched with injuries, we’ve missed some key players and that has halted our progress really.
Brighton manager Chris Hughton: “We came up against a very dynamic Bournemouth side and couldn’t handle them.He Told the media.
“We are in a fight at the moment. Our form is very up and down. This was on the back of a very good performance last week. We have to show our character on Tuesday. Once the players cross that line it’s only them who can do that.”
On Anthony Knockaert’s red card: “It was a reckless challenge. It was the right decision.
