Chris Hughton: 'Brighton & Hove Albion were not good enough'

Everton boss Sam Allardyce admitted he the felt pressure ease after Cenk Tosun doubled the Toffees' lead in the 2-0 win over Brighton at Goodison Park.

Chris Hughton hopes the fear of being caught by sides below them will motivate his Brighton players to get the points they need to stay in the Premier League.

Brighton's bad day was compounded by Anthony Knockaert's red card for a two-footed challenge on Leighton Baines, meaning he will miss the next three games.

He said: "The quality told in the end".

"It's just a shame Wayne didn't finish off what would have been an outstanding performance". He kept the ball moving and getting it forward, and kept the flow of the attacks going.

"Only wins will keep me in a job", Allardyce suggested before the game, cleverly inviting his critics to be careful what they wish for, and at home at least the results are holding up.

"We know what the levels are, and we have reached those levels in the run we've been on, and we were well below that today".

However, on Saturday morning, the Catalan giants announced that Messi would be absent from the squad due to personal reasons. Barcelona are due to face Chelsea in the Champions League round of 16 second leg on Wednesday with the game poised at 1-1.

We're all sorry we have a clown in charge who hasn't played you.

Asked about Walcott's fitness status at his post-match press conference, Allardyce explained: 'Cramp, so he should be OK.

Thus, Hughton becomes Brighton's first ever recipient of a Premier League Manager of the Month award, what with this being their first ever season in the competition an all.

"I was surprised, particularly with the form we've been in".

We have certainly got to start playing positively with Cenk in the team from the start; albeit a bit late, but that elusive Euro place is possible mathematically.

CHRIS HUGHTON has put his Albion players on guard after their return to the top half of the Premier League table.
