Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton was pleased with their performance for Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Arsenal.
Glenn Murray levelled from the penalty spot to cancel out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s ninth-minute effort for the Gunners, and Hughton felt his team carried across momentum from their second-half performance against Newcastle United last weekend.
He said, “I’m delighted with the performance — we were on the back of an albeit defensive performance at Wolves and a good 88 minutes at Tottenham, against similar quality to what they’ve got here.
“We wanted a reaction — in our last game we were very poor against Newcastle in the first half, but very good in the second half, and we were able to continue that today.
“The performance was certainly more like us. Even though we’ve dug out a couple of decent performances and results away from home, most people would have thought they’d get a second and third goal.
“It was tough going behind so early on, but credit to the lads for adjusting well. We had to dig deep, and I thought we thoroughly deserved the result.”
