The Seasiders dominated the contest but had to come from behind, Elliot Grandin (72) eventually negating Ashley Barnes' opener on 56 minutes.

"Brighton have been going through a rough time but I give Gus Poyet massive credit for the way his team is playing," Holloway said.

"But our goals have dried up and I think we need Kevin Phillips back because some of our finishing looked a bit erratic.

"The goal we let in was as soft as a wet potato but that is down to a lack of communication and not dealing with things.

"We made a great comeback though. It was a fantastic ball from Matt Phillips and that really lifted everybody.

"That is our fault for not taking our chances. Had one gone in earlier it would have changed the game.

"I will have to scratch my head, start again and see how we go from here."

think you're forgetting that De Gea plays for MU and therefore is the bestest and stats are meaningless unless they show this. Lastly, the understanding of goalkeeping in still the stone ages in England, so I wouldn't pay too much attention the warm secretions that pundits and various hangers-on, have been emitting over De Gea.

suspect the review will conclude that Iago Aspas should never have been loaned out. Two hat-tricks in two Copa Del Rey games. One might say he has really turned a corner.
