Reasons Why Manchester United Lost To Brighton



Jose Mourinho cut a frustrated and desperate figure on the touchline during his teams 3-2 loss against Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday, unable to influence proceedings with his substitutions and seemingly lacking any ideas in the face of adversity.

It is beginning to look likely that Mourinho will be the first Premier League manager to leave his post, now priced at 4/1. "I think he'll be gone before Christmas".

Romelu Lukaku briefly halved the deficit but a clumsy challenge from Eric Bailly allowed Pascal Gross to restore Albion's two-goal lead with a penalty, before Paul Pogba converted an inconsequential stoppage-time spot-kick.

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

"I put myself first, my attitude wasn't right enough, we keep trying and pushing, and it is going to be a big lesson for us".

"Manchester United have had a problem since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in the transfer market with David Moyes and then Louis van Gaal You could argue £350million to £400m of the £700m that has been spent has not been wasted, but it's not value for money".

"I am expecting the manager to get sacked before Christmas", Sharpe said.

"It was the same with Luke Shaw before that".

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.

Since the World Cup started, he has had 14 shots on target come his way and he has conceded a worrying 10 goals.

Souness was scathing in his evaluation of the squad at Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho is battling growing disillusionment in the Manchester United dressing room over his methods, at a time when the club's hierarchy are making moves to help smooth the disconnect between the manager and board with the appointment of a technical director.

The anger and frustration of the executive vice-chairman was evident when the television cameras picked him up in the stands. In particular, Pochettino will want his fullbacks to press forward to keep Mourinho's wingers playing defence as much as possible.

Fans and critics are divided after a hard summer in the market and tough start to the season.

"It's clear a lot of journalists don't like Mourinho and can't wait for Man Utd to lose so they can smash him". Every manager makes a mistake in selling a player that shouldn't be sold, it comes back to bite them.

In total, just 28 goals were conceded in 38 games previous year and in half of their league games, they kept clean sheets.

Tottenham have opened the season with two relatively comfortable victories, but Monday's match at Old Trafford will be their sternest test of the young season.
