Mourinho Criticises Man Utd Attackers After Shock Loss

Adjust Comment Print

Gary Neville has described Manchester United as bad, terrible and woeful following their shock defeat to Brighton on Friday night. The win means that the Seagulls reached the 40-point mark in the table and safety.

With third bottom Southampton and 17th-placed Swansea to meet on Tuesday, Brighton now can't now be relegated. I said during commentary that I felt if there's any player who wondered why he wasn't playing in the cup final, you can just show them this video.

United offered the first real threat on goal, as Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini saw a goal chalked off for offside.

Brighton began to sense it might be the night to get the win they needed and David de Gea had to be alert to keep out Gross.

"It was not good enough", he told Sky Sports News.

De Gea was having a busy first half, the goalkeeper tipping over Izquierdo's drive and Shane Duffy proving wasteful with a header from the resulting right-wing corner.

Pascal Gross headed Albion into a deserved 57th-minute lead with his seventh goal of the season.

The Belgian, whose future remains uncertain with his contract nearly up, had the ball in the net after only three minutes but he was offside when he turned home Marcus Rashford's free-kick.

Matteo Darmian was in the side from the beginning, despite rumours about his future at Old Trafford, and the Red Devils faithful were quick to let him know he could return back to Italy after his performance against Brighton. "When individuals don't perform, it's hard for the team to perform". - Pascal Gross has been directly involved in 45 per cent of Brighton's 33 Premier League goals this season (15 - 7 goals, 8 assists). - Jose Mourinho has lost six of his last 10 away Premier League matches in the month of May (W1 D3). The former-Newcastle boss deserves enormous credit for the job he has done on the south coast.

"'That guy doesn't have a chance to start, the other one is on the bench'". However, they have defied the odds to secure another campaign in the top tier of English football.

Sanchez and Pogba are not only Manchester United's highest paid players, but the Premier League's top earners.
