Gus Poyet: Oversaw a third successive Brighton draw

Victory would have given Albion a five-point cushion on their seventh-placed visitors, but in the end it took a Kazenga LuaLua goal two minutes from time to secure a 1-1 draw.

Bolton and Leicester are just two points behind with five games to play, but a positive Poyet said: "It's in our hands.

"LuaLua's goal could be a very important one for us. We've drawn our last three games and I would say we need to win three of our last five matches.

"It'll be a good number as teams behind us will need to win four. We can't blame anyone if we don't do it.

"We're ahead of the rest and it's up to us to be ahead of Leicester and Bolton. It will only be because of our failings if we don't do it."

The point for Leicester was just their third in eight games, but Poyet said: "Leicester are a very good team.

"They have power, pace and technical ability and are a very good team to play against. I'm sure Nigel Pearson can turn this run around."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
