Brighton manager Gus Poyet accused his side of "comic" defending after they scored three own goals in a 6-1 FA Cup hammering at Liverpool.

Liam Bridcutt twice found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, whilst Lewis Dunk's disastrous attempt at controlling a Luis Suarez cross also ended in calamity.

"I watched the goals on the computer," said Poyet. "There are a few funny ones in there. They were comic goals."
