Brighton upset Mourinho’s United

Jose Mourinho’s third season syndrome may be in full swing after Manchester United lost 3-2 to Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex stadium.

Brighton raced to the lead thanks to two first-half goals in as many minutes from Glenn Murray and Shane Duffy.

The game began in a comfortable fashion for United, with Fred and Paul Pogba getting lots of possession in midfield areas, without failing to threaten Mat Ryan in the Brighton goal.

However, Romelu Lukaku pulled one goal back to give the Red Devils a glimmer of hope but Chris Hughton’s men had other ideas.

The Seagulls wrapped up the when Eric Bailly inexplicably fouled Pascal Gross, who stepped up to drill his penalty past David De Gea.

Mourinho’s men failed to muster a response in the second half and Paul Pogba’s late penalty came too late to threaten Brighton’s hopes of gaining three points.

The result leaves an increasingly under-pressure Mourinho down in the dumps while the Seagulls soar following their first win of the new season.

United welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Old Trafford a week on Monday, with Mourinho knowing questions about his future will only intensify after this disappointing performance.
