Tony Pulis: "That was a fantastic performance from the players and a fantastic result for this football club. You need a bit of luck when you play a top, top team and if one or two decisions have gone our way today, then so be it. The players have earned it for their efforts. We have played well in matches this season when decisions haven't gone for us, so if they have gone for us on this occasion, then I am absolutely delighted."

Harry Redknapp: "Adebayor was way onside. There were two blatant handballs and the referee missed them. I thought he had a poor day. It [Younes Kaboul's sending off] was farcical."

Martin O'Neill: "It was surreal, really surreal. Just to get three points on the board is immense. I would have given a lot for that, just to have won the game, but mainly - forget about myself - just for the players. Having lost the game here last time out against Wigan in the circumstances in which they did, and then to go to Wolves and miss the penalty and then lose the game ... it's only a win, it only gives us a win. We have a million miles to go, but in terms of restoration of confidence, it was great."

Steve Kean: "We feel that at times Chris Samba brings the attention of the referees because of his size. It was a great delivery from Morten Gamst Pedersen and there was clearly no foul. Kieren Westwood has banged into Chris, there was nothing wrong with that. Chris didn't look at the 'keeper, Chris didn't move, and yet he's deemed to have fouled him and we've had a legitimate goal ruled out. Then the kick in the teeth is that Formica is making a genuine attempt to head the ball and it hits the underside of his arm and they get a free-kick with 30 seconds to go. So it is very tough to take."
