Did Manchester United put the effort in against Brighton?

Paul Pogba dominated Leicester and will next face Brighton at the Amex Stadium

After a week of speculation between Mourinho and the French midfielder, Pogba would not be drawn on what the manager had said to the players during and after the game, saying: "The first half, I think you should ask him. The attitude has to be right and we missed that today". "When I can't do that, don't push me to the other side".

Mourinho wanted a central defender in the close season and on the first half evidence at Brighton, it was clear why, yet he also sanctioned the £30 million (Dh140.4m) signings of Bailly and Lindelof.

"I think they have a fantastic squad", he said. For me that's the story of the game. "We made incredible mistakes in some crucial moments, mistakes that killed us".

Pogba's goal was nothing more than a consolation though as the Seagulls held on to register a second consecutive win over United at the Amex Stadium, while Mourinho now will have some serious thinking to ahead of the game against Tottenham Hotspur next weekend. But don't expect me to speak with you about it because you and your colleagues were really critical of me when in previous seasons I was probably too honest and too open in my analysing and I was too honest and too open in analysing about players' performances. "There are basic mistakes that makes it nearly an impossible mission to win the match".

Mourinho made some pointed references towards City when asked about the new fly-on-the-wall documentary about the Premier League champions that was released by Amazon earlier this week.

So we were in trouble. "We need to press and press and press in the other half, otherwise we are in trouble". "It's clear. The best for technical skill, the best for scoring, but I think it depends only on him.

Souness was on punditry duty for Sky Sports when he delivered a brutal assessment of the Red Devils as he insisted that the current crop of players is the least impressive since before Sir Alex Ferguson took over at Old Trafford. "We were punished by this".

"We did not deserve to win", said Pogba, who scored a late penalty in this humbling 3-2 defeat. Every manager makes a mistake in selling a player that shouldn't be sold, it comes back to bite them.

"The third goal was too hard".

They were looking unsafe but were nearly caught out in the tenth minute when Lewis Dunk gave the ball away to Lukaku, who passed to Pogba, who in turn played Lukaku in on goal but the striker dragged his shot wide when he should have scored.
