"It is a smaller challenge than when we've on the brink in the past but it is still a huge challenge" Perret said. "It was very much a club day but that's then, now it's about making sure we dust ourselves down and get some results that we will need".
"We know better, and I know better, and they know me better, and that's why it's easier".
"It's completely the same, because it's the same manager".
"We did that last season too, but in the boxes we were not good".
Brighton boss Chris Hughton: "For 70 minutes I thought we were good, there's only one way we can play against a team like City".

"Hopefully next season I will be here and we are not going to spend how we have this season".
