Jose Mourinho refuses to blame his defenders for defeat at Brighton

We expect Brighton to start like this

"I think we made the mistake we shouldn't make", added Pogba.

Paul Pogba pulls one back from the penalty spot, but it's too late!

Manchester United fans were definitely disappointed by the weak performance that was put in by the players vs Brighton.

As for Manchester United, they defeated Leicester 2-1 in the opening game of the 2018/2019 season.

Eric Bailly was the culprit, bringing down Pascal Gross in the area, but there were a string of errors in the build up to the foul.

"We were playing at home last week and that's different".

Nonetheless, Mourinho has apparently gone with experience for the longer run and it isn't surprising to see Valencia being named as the captain of the club.

In team news, Mourinho should welcome back Romelu Lukaku & Jessie Lingard after their World Cup adventures.

Federal Bureau of Investigation sacks agent who exchanged anti-Trump messages with lover
Strzok's lawyer, Aitan Goelman, said his client was sacked late Friday by FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich. During the 2016, Strzok would regularly text with attorney Lisa Page expressing his distaste for Trump.

Both signed by Mourinho for a combined fee of £60 million, they have started the season as first choice but it would be no surprise if they were both sat in the stands when Tottenham turn up at Old Trafford on August 27.

If the United manager wanted to make his point to Ed Woodward, he need only post of video of the first half here to the chief executive's office at Old Trafford.

United's defending was dire, with Bailly and Victor Lindelof doing little to convince the manager of their suitability as a long-term partnership, while Andreas Pereira and new recruit Fred were anonymous in midfield. "If he stayed here last season probably what is happening now to him could probably happen one season ago". Marcos Rojo is another option, but the Argentina defender is still nursing an injury picked up at the World Cup.

Brighton had the eighth best home record in the Premier League last season with seven of their nine wins coming at the AMEX.

The Red Devils star suffered a horror leg break during Manchester United's 2-1 loss to PSV in September 2015 to deal a blow to his promising progress.

In a tempestuous pre-season, Mourinho also clashed with Anthony Martial when the Frenchman failed to return to the club's pre-season tour of the United States after the birth of his second child.

But he won't be the only player the Portuguese coach is upset with.

However, Mourinho, the Manchester United boss, has brushed away all such murmurs and has said that he has "never been more happy" with the French global.
