Mourinho: Manchester United confidence hit by errors


Brighton were 3-1 ahead at half-time and frustrated United until Pogba converted a penalty in stoppage time, and the France worldwide suggested he had not been mentally prepared.

"Someone said he was the next Denis Irwin when they signed him".

Allardyce was also highly critical of United striker Anthony Martial, who appears to be out of Mourinho's plans after he was fined for failing to return to the club's pre-season tour of America last month following the birth of his child.

Pogba headed well wide from a deep delivery as United sought a way back into things on the south coast, but Brighton were happy to sit deep with their visitors showing little in the way of imagination.

'I think United fans accepted second past year because they were behind a City side breaking loads of records. Last year, we had nearly the same attitude as today and it's not right.

"We were playing at home last week [a 2-1 win over Leicester] and that's different". We have to wake up for the next game and definitely not play like we did.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola denies they wanted to insult Manchester United rival Jose Mourinho in their Amazon documentary. We are very mad, everybody is very mad.

"It's lump it forward, play off the bits and see where we go from that".

"You can lose a game of football, anytime even Manchester United, even Manchester City can lose a game of football". That's the mentality and the culture of the club.

- This was only the 10th time in Premier League history that Manchester United conceded three first-half goals in a game, and the first time since October 2015, against Arsenal. We didn't do it today and we are very disappointed because we are the guys that should have the good and right attitude.
