Reflecting on an important first three points of the season, Matic added:
“It was not our best game of course, and we all know that. But the most important thing is we won that game. We have to respect Brighton because they played some amazing football and I think it will be very hard for every team to take points from them. It was a crazy game, we have to admit that. But that’s football, everything is possible in football.
“We conceded the second goal, I think, 30 seconds or one minute before the final whistle, but we kept believing that we could score in the last seconds and we did. Of course with VAR, the referee made the right decision, we all saw that the player played the ball with his hand, so we won and we are happy with three points. But we are not happy with our performance and we know that we can do much better. Hopefully, we will show that on Wednesday.”
