Paul Pogba: our attitude was all wrong

"They had more hunger than us and the result is the right one for them".

"The press, the pundits are usually very critical of me when I go in that direction".

"We thought Paul Pogba might be the ideal candidate to be that leader but he wasn't there today".

His positioning was generally poor, he conceded a needless corner from which Brighton scored their second, while his rash challenge on Gross gifted them the third from the penalty spot.

In fact, it has only happened three times in 26 years of Premier League football.

Mourinho suggested he had taken reaction to his comments last season to heart, telling the BBC: "I have to learn from my reality".

"They are Manchester United in name only".

Many are beginning to doubt Mourinho's reign in charge at Old Trafford after an average pre-season and a lack of transfer activity, but one fan has gone to new extremes in a bid to get rid.

'But I don't think it's a big thing.

Yet, it could be Mourinho who walks out the door first.

None arrived and the only defensive recruit was Dalot, who adds competition in the full-back areas along with Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian, Ashley Young and Luke Shaw.

"[Chris] Smalling didn't play [against Brighton], [Phil] Jones is injured". This was an improvement on their display in last season's 1-0 home win over the same opponents and will give the manager hope of a top-half finish this term. The team was unorganized, far from sharp in attack and David de Gea once again looked off in the biggest upset in the league thus far. The Iranian global was the top scorer in the Eredivisie last season and enjoyed an impressive World Cup for Team Melli.

The good news is Sanchez's injury doesn't appear too serious but he's still considered a major doubt for Man Utd's crucial clash with Tottenham at Old Trafford a week on Monday. "When you lose your confidence then it's the normal tendency to lose that confidence and game plan".

The anger and frustration of the executive vice-chairman was evident when the television cameras picked him up in the stands. That might have saved Eric Bailly a "Mou Batters Bailly" headline, but it did not save the team as a whole from "Bullied by Brighton", nor did Mourinho and Woodward escape widespread criticism.
