The Seagulls created far more chances than their visitors - striking the woodwork three times and missing a penalty when Ashley Barnes saw a first-half spot-kick saved by Adam Bogdan.

Defender Bruno Saltor finally volleyed the hosts into a deserved lead and they looked set to pocket all three points before a last-gasp David Ngog strike ensured honours ended even.

But Poyet said afterwards: "I don't think there is a manager in the whole world who can be upset with the players. We are not getting the credit we deserve.

"There is no other team who can play the way we did against Bolton and yet it finished 1-1. It's up to a crowd of 26,000 to tell the rest of the country that we were unbelievable.

"I didn't think that an equaliser was coming, and don't want to complain about there being 20 or 30 seconds more added-time.

"I am proud and absolutely delighted with what we have done. We were so superior, it's incredible the way we played."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
