Brighton stun lacklustre Man United

Jose Mourinho accused Manchester City of lacking class in a scathing response to his own appearances in a documentary series about the Premier League champions.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, Pogba said: "We lost and the attitude that we had I thought we deserved to win".

"The attitude we had was not like we wanted to beat them, they had more hunger than us". It's not right, myself first. We had players on the pitch with three days training, coming from important injuries, coming from a hard pre-season and we got together three days before the match and had to prepare for that and some players made a huge effort to do it for the team.

"We don't want to lose two games in a row so we're going to have to get ready for Tottenham and play much, much better". It's a hit for us.

Brighton took control in the first half-hour thanks to two goals in the space of 143 seconds, with Murray clipping a delightful finish past David de Gea before Duffy swept home after United failed to clear a corner. Obviously it is still early in the season, but it does look unlikely that Manchester United are anywhere near good enough, as we sit here today.

Mourinho said "you can not buy class" after City's £10m documentary All Or Nothing - focusing on last season's title win - was released this week.

If they can do that more often than not this season, they should win enough home games to stay in the league for a third successive campaign.

"When I am critical with my players you just don't accept it, so please do not ask me to go in this direction because it is not good for me", Mourinho said.

French midfielder Paul Pogba captained the side in a hugely disappointing performance at the Falmer Stadium. "You don't need to be disrespectful". "We made incredible mistakes in some crucial moments, mistakes that killed us".

Target-man Murray swept home his first goal of the season to toast his 200th Brighton appearance, before Shane Duffy and Pascal Gross left United reeling.

Mourinho refused to openly criticise his players, saying he had been too honest in the past and suggesting the defeat was sufficient ammunition for journalists. "I have to learn from my reality", Mourinho said.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has shrugged off criticism from Manchester United counterpart Jose Mourinho regarding the club's new behind-the-scenes documentary. "The experience of last season, where we conceded heavy defeats to the top-six sides will help us".

It was reported earlier this week that Manchester United would be forced to pay Jose Mourinho a whopping £12 million if they chose to sack him this season.
