EPL: Brighton record shock win over Manchester United

EPL: Brighton record shock win over Manchester United

The Frenchman has struggled to find consistent game time under Jose Mourinho this year, adding another case to Mourinho's reputation for not giving younger players a chance to thrive in his sides.

With Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez both absent from the bench, the English worldwide was picked to start against the Seagulls.

Pascal Gross scored the only goal of the game in Brighton's win over United.

Mourinho, who has seen his side beaten by all three promoted sides in the Premier League this season, did not hold back in his criticism of United's front line. Martial was by far United's most unsafe player today and was unlucky on several attempts as he skied two efforts in the space of four minutes but was even poorer later on with a poor touch costing more time for United and an average cross giving Matt Ryan catching practise.

"Overall, attitude during the first half they were obviously stronger than us with more appetite, they felt it with different emotions", Mourinho said of Brighton's energetic performance.

"Mourinho said it was important to him that four points were achieved to finish second and he couldn't convey that to his players".

"You should be disappointed more than me because probably I know my players better than you, and probably you don't know them so well to be always with these questions".

MAN UNITED:De Gea, Darmian (Shaw 68), Smalling, Rojo (McTominay 76), Young, Fellaini (Lingard 68), Matic, Pogba, Mata, Rashford, Martial. "Maybe now you will not ask me why A, B and C do not play so much", declared Mourinho.

The defeat leaves Manchester United second place in the Premier League table, five points clear of third-place Liverpool in the race for second-place. This Brighton team might be the start of a longer stay in the Premier League. "We were not able to motivate ourselves".

"If you could pick a game to do it, it would be Man United at Amex". People always ask: 'Why always Lukaku?' Well, now they know why always Lukaku, and why always this player and why always that player.
