Roberto Martinez (on Callum McManaman's tackle on Massadio Haidara): "Remember it's Callum's full debut in the Premier League. I haven't seen the replay, I believe that he touches the ball and then it's a bad challenge, but it's nothing malicious, he's not that sort of boy. It's the normal enthusiasm that you get in your debut. I can't really comment too much because I haven't seen the action but I can guarantee that Callum McManaman is a young man full of talent and in his debut probably showed the enthusiasm that you expect, but he's not a malicious player. I think he wants to contact the player. I don't know if he's done it already but he will do that because when you get an injury in that manner you obviously don't want to leave any bad feelings. If Callum hasn't apologised yet then he definitely will do that because we're a football club where those values are very important."
Alan Pardew: "It is an awful challenge. The pictures speak for themselves. I thought it was a bad challenge and I was 60 yards from the incident. The players knew because they were on top of it and there was a lot of bad feeling about that incident when it goes unpunished. He (Halsey) said 'If I've missed it I apologise' - that was at half-time.If it goes unpunished it doubles the impact on the mentality of the players and the team and it did have an impact on us, you can't get away from that. My job was to calm the players at half-time, not go looking for retribution, and try to win the second half - which to all intents and purposes we did. But again there's a decision at the end where we should have had a corner, it goes up the other end and there's a handball - that is tough to take. The linesman is looking right at it, the referee is there and all our players reacted and in that split second we didn't clear the ball - that's what happens when you miss a decision as big as that."
Andre Villas-Boas: "It was nothing to do with the players. The effort and commitment were there. Probably the organisation wasn't, and it is down to us to get to business and correct that. You can't hide from what has happened in the past with Spurs. You just have to make sure that we are able to fight against it. It has been difficult month for us. If we are able to find our form or confidence and win then we can end that cycle that Spurs normally have. We just have to work hard."
Martin Jol: "Before the game you hope for a point... but Berbatov came to me and promised me... He said: 'you have to trust me'. I thought he was joking. But he said it before the match against Stoke (where he scored the winner) and he is a wonderful player. It was one of the best wins ever.
Rafael Benitez (on Frank Lampard's 200th Chelsea goal): "We were expecting him to score today, because the team were creating chances. He has broken a great record and hopefully can score more goals. Frank is a fantastic player and he works very hard in training. We have a lot of games to play this season, so hopefully he can score more goals. "If we continue winning, you can be closer to second. We have a busy schedule now and then we will see where we are in the table."
Sam Allardyce (on disallowed Andy Carroll goal): "Technically it was a foul, but I can show you about four of them outside the box he (referee Michael Oliver) didn't give. It was a brilliant dive by David Luiz and I think that bought him the foul. We were always in the game if we could score, but this year away from home scoring has been a massive problem for us. We had enough opportunities to score at least one.
Martin O'Neill: "We had an opportunity there to go and try to get three points. It's difficult - it's been difficult all season for us. But we have games still to play, tough matches, every one of them. But the whole league has been tough for us. This is the league. You play everybody twice, this is the run of games. But we had a situation around about Christmas-time when people were showing the fixture list then, and we were able to win back-to-back games against Southampton and Manchester City, so we have to go and do that again. My concern, obviously, is the players going away on international duty. I won't see them for some time and I'm hoping they come back in one piece."
Chris Hughton: "To be down to 10 men for as long as we were in this game and to come out of it with what I thought in normal play was probably the best chance of the game through Grant Holt when he was through - if his touch was a little bit softer, he was on for a one v one. But I can't remember a clear chance that Sunderland had, so I think we have got to give credit to a group of lads who were desperate to get something out of this game."
