Steven Taylor: "The gaffer has just made the point to us that we should be 2-0 ahead. We had those two goals chalked off - we're disappointed with that.
"It was one of our best performances in a while. Everything the gaffer asked of us we did - we just didn't win.
"We're absolutely gutted.
"Tonight showed we have goals in us.
"We can go there with more confidence than them. We will hope to pose them more problems."
Yohan Cabaye: "It was a tough game. The important things is we haven't conceded a goal.
"If we are doing the right thing away from home, we score, then they have to score two.
"That's the main thing from tonight."
