on the test of character at Brighton…
We played a quality side. We prepared ourselves to deal with it. In first half we had some problems, but in the second half I think we controlled the game well. Overall we did what we wanted to do. We certainly played against one of the better sides in this round of the FA Cup. For me, Brighton have a chance of coming up to the Premier League.

That was very important for us. It gives two messages out. The first is that we want to keep our best players and are capable of doing it. Secondly, offensively, we are not in a position where we have absolutely to be desperate to buy anybody, because Theo can play through the middle and on the flanks.
