Pogba: Brighton was ‘hungrier’ than Man United

N'Zonzi

Pogba has netted penalties in each of his Premier League appearances in 2018-19, but a promising display against Leicester was followed by an uninspiring showing in a 3-2 defeat at Brighton.

Romelu Lukaku scored for United to make it 2-1 and captain Paul Pogba converted a stoppage-time penalty with virtually the last kick of the game.

With Manchester City winning 6-1, it completed it a gloomy Sunday for United, yet an organised, hard working, hard pressing Brighton side must be credited for a second successive home win against Mourinho's men - who didn't look like they had the stomach for a fightback.

Gary Neville has called on Ed Woodward to adopt a modern strategy at Manchester United that delivers profits on the pitch as well as off it.

It was a dismal effort from United and Balogun said the game would probably be played at a quicker pace when Brighton visit Anfield on Saturday. It is frustrating when players targeted but not signed - from Karim Benzema to Eden Hazard - have gone on to become among the best in the world.

"I'll analyse my players' performances when they are very good".

"Every person in every job [who] makes a mistake is not happy, self-esteem goes down a little bit more, confidence levels - that's human nature so, if you ask me if my players are in this moment happy, I don't think they are".

Bailly and Lindelof are not callow teens playing their first professional games, but experienced global footballers signed for £30 million each while Mourinho was manager.




The Sweden global will be hoping to make more of an impression in his second season at Old Trafford.

"The four defenders melted".

The Brighton fans on the main stand's concourse sang in unison when they saw Jose Mourinho on TV screens after Sunday's match.

"His defence cost him more than 120 million euros so they have to play much better", offered Jamie Redknapp. "How much more money should they squander?" This was a bad performance for all of us.

Brighton face another sizeable challenge in the form of Liverpool at Anfield next up, where they lost 4-0 on the final day of last season.

Those were notable and impressive numbers which have worsened at the outset of this season.

Unfortunately for United, next up, Harry Kane and Tottenham Hotspur arrive at Old Trafford.
